The 9th Day of Christmas brings us:
Don't let the name fool you, Heeps Bowtique specializes in way more than just hair accessories! The Heeps product line also consists of custom embroidered clothing, tu-tus, burp cloths, diaper wipe cases, you name it!
On top of her career as a mommy, Lizzie is the creative genius and driving force behind this fantastic business. A little over a year ago, Lizzie's women’s group was raising money to benefit the community. In order to help contribute, she started selling bows and other accessories, and donated all of the profit. Her efforts proved so successful, and she enjoyed herself so much, that she opened a "bowtique" under the acronym of "HEEPS:" Helping, Encouraging, Empowering and Providing Support. To this day, part of the profit from each and every sale is donated.
Lizzie utilizes high quality ribbons, felts, and fabrics in the production of all her pieces. Shirts are not only embroidered, but also frequently hand stitched. The pricing of Heeps Bowtique products is surprisingly affordable, ranging from $2.00-$23, with the typical custom shirt averaging around $13. (Far less than you would pay, for a lesser product, at the average department store!)
With Christmas Card pictures looming, and no outfit in mind for the baby, I was beyond excited when Lizzie offered to custom make a shirt for him. What she created, was nothing less than a tiny masterpiece! For starters, the shirt fit him perfectly, with just enough room to grow into. I also loved how it was all one piece, which is essential when dressing a tot, but it still managed to retain the authentic, layered look. The hand-sewn buttons and bow tie were simply my undoing. Paired with a GAP jacket I scored on clearance, he looked like the perfect British gentleman in our pictures. A true intellect. All he was missing was a pipe and a novel!
Shopping at Heeps Bowtique should be a no-brainer. Not only are the products adorable and affordable, but a portion of the proceeds is donated. Talk about a win-win!
