What type of merchandise will shoppers find in your shop?
We have hair accessories for children and recently started carrying "crumb catchers," which are fabric placemats that children can roll up and put in their lunchboxes or moms can use in the diaper bag for use in restaraunts, etc.

How/why did you get started?
I got started like alot of moms who make bows: my daughter wanted bows for her hair, and I couldn't find bows to match her outfits, so I started making them myself. After a while, people started commenting on my bows and suggesting I make them to sell, and I did!
