Shop Feature [Alice & Josie] + GIVEAWAY!

It's no secret that I love having girls and all of the girly things that follow! Shopping, matching outfits, accessories, painting nails (although Hadley always ask for me to wipe it off after 5 min), shoes.. it is SO fun! I love styling the girls' outfits with sweet and simple bows, which is exactly what the shop Alice & Josie has to offer. This night owl, bow makin mama, lives less than an hour away from me, and I was thrilled to work together and support her shop. It's so good to shop small AND local! Her nylon headbands are perfect for any age and bows are such great quality. Today I'm highlighting the talent behind the shop, mama of 4 and bow creator, Kenzie!

What inspired you to start making bows and headbands?
My inspiration for my shop began when I was pregnant with my first daughter, Alice, who is now 3. After 2 boys, finding out I was expecting a little girl, well, I went a little bow crazy! Bows are so fun for baby girls! With my second daughter and 4th child, Josie, I gave up those last few hours I had been holding on to working in retail merchandising to be home full time and missed that creative outlet. Creating a bow shop felt like a perfect fit.

What sets you apart from other shops?
For my own girls I love sweet and dainty bows. There are so many shops out there that make bows, but I want to stay true to myself and my vision for the shop-to make what I love for my own girls. I also want to be mindful of my price point. It has always been important to me to find quality products in a price range that was realistic with raising a family and I want to stick to that for my own customers.

What all does your Etsy store offer and what else can we expect to see in your shop's future?
The shop is made up of handcrafted hair bows that are on either headbands or clips. I use nylon headbands that are awesome because they fit newborns just as well as they fit toddlers. I love using lace, ribbon, and wool felt and I am branching off into sewn fabric bows as well. The shop has also recently added burp cloths for girls as well as boys.
