the christmas season!

long time, no talk. we know. we've had a very busy season of making headbands nonstop! since you've heard from us, we participated in the mistletoe market in charlottesville, va, had an appearance at Donna D's show in virginia beach, va and have had lots of christmas orders in between. the next stop is december 9th and 10th in charlottesville, va (again) at the home of carrie macfarlan. there will be many other vendors there as well-- it's going to be a ton of fun! if you'll be in the charlottesville area this weekend, contact us and we'll send you the information.

a huge thank you to brett baker for everything she did to make the mistletoe market  a success! :) we love ya!

another note, if you still need to get some christmas presents for the wonderful women in your life, email us by december 10th and you're guaranteed to receive your headbands before christmas! you can order as many as you want, just make sure it's by the 10th and we'll definitely have them to you!
