It’s hump day! You know what that means. Another small business feature! I am SUPER excited about this week! Little Headfeathers has the most adorable headbands and hairbows from infants to adults. From polka dots to pom-poms, you name it, she’s got it!
I was fortunate enough to get one of her Gold Medallion Lady Lace headbands and Ivory Pom-Pom headbands and they are SO fun! One adds some sparkle, and one adds some sass (okay – they both add sass). Definitely check out her Easy shop and pick up one of her “headfeathers” – they won’t disappoint!
So y’all can get to know Maja (the fantastic & super kind owner) a little better, she has so kindly answered some questions!
Karen: Have you always lived in FL? If not, where were you raised?
Maja: I was born and raised in Germany. After finishing college, I needed an adventure and that led me to the United States and eventually into the arms of my now husband of almost 4 years.
Karen: What inspired you to start making headbands / bows? How long have you been doing so?
Maja: Since becoming a mother I have always played around with the idea of having a little business of the crafty kind on the side. When we moved to Florida 6 months ago, I had no friends and therefore a lot of time on my hands and that was when I decided it’s now or never. I love being a stay at home mom, but I needed something that was just for myself.. A little escape from the everyday craziness… Something that I could be creative with. I started making bows for my daughter for fun and one night it just clicked and I found my calling. Four weeks later (November 2014) I opened the shop and it’s been a blast!
Maja: Honestly, I love them all. I take a lot of pride in making my products and I don’t sell anything I don’t really love. If I had to choose I would say it’s my latest addition “The Lady Lace” line. That’s three headbands made for adults only (see the silver medallion Lady Lace above and here.)
Karen: What product has been your best seller?
Karen: What are your goals/dreams/hopes for your small business?
Maja: My goal is to team up with small boutiques and sell my items through them as well as online. I want to stay a small business and keep hand making every single
item because I truly enjoy it!
Karen: What do you love to do outside of your small business?
Maja: I love being a mom and spending my days with my daughter. Making bows and headbands is my hobby so other than that I enjoy coffee dates with friends, constant Target runs (because I could miss out on a sale), Sunday brunches with my little family, and redecorating my house (over and over again).
Karen: Do you have any other favorite small businesses, either locally or through Etsy?
Maja: I am a sucker for small businesses and I try and shop small whenever can. I currently enjoy buying handmade children’s clothing but I can’t say that I have a favorite shop. Also, I am currently eyeballing your coasters! They are lovely!
I love how passionate Maja is about her small business and about small businesses in general. I think having that passion and support system is very important when trying to start-up and grow a small business.
We also share a love for Target, redecorating, and coffee. I hope one day we cross paths. Until then, best of luck with your shop!
