I think i'm really going to enjoy taking a peek into your shops ladies!! Please, if you're interested in having your shop featured on my blog, follow the instructions on this blog post and whip me off an email! I'm excited to hear from you!! :) I plan on featuring WAHM/W shops each Saturday on my blog for a new "Small Shop Saturday" feature, (1 feature every week!) so please don't hesitate in getting your info. to me if you're interested!
Ok, let's get to it, shall we? First up for my "Work at Home Mom/Women" shops is Nicole from the Purple Poui!
My name is Nicole Mar-Fan and I live in New York. I am a married mother of an 11 year old (going on 27 lol). My business is called Purple Poui and it has been opened on Etsy and on Amazon for a little over a year now. I make fabric covered thumbtacks! And I have to add in here, she also makes adorable fridge magnets!! Check out this "Baroque" set! Love them! For those of you who are big into teal right now, Nicole definitely knows the trends... check out this gorgeous teal & mustard thumb tack set!!
I opened my shop out of my deep and weird love of all things stationary. But every time I tried to find really cute thumbtacks I would end up disappointed by the lack of creativity of the styles. True they're thumbtacks, but as a crafty woman I wanted them to match my lifestyle. It seemed other people wanted this same thing too. Who knew?
If you're wondering where she came up with her shop name, Purple Poui like I was... here's how she came up with the shop name:
There is a tree called the Poui tree that grows in warm climates. The tree bears these lush trumpet-like flowers which can be pink, yellow or purple. The purple flowers are my favorite because they look so royal, and when the tree sheds the flowers they blanket the ground like an amazing carpet. So in short I named my shop after my favorite flowering tree!
Which bundle of tacks are your favourite?***
