As you are probably aware, this week is the biggest sale week of the year! But did you know that between Black Friday and Cyber Monday there is another special sale day…Small Shop Saturday! It’s a day specifically to promote small local shops, the backbone of our economy. So I’ve teamed up with a few mom-run shops from my hometown of Sudbury to show their amazing products!
My first small shop is Peach Bug, the ultimate baby hair accessory shop.
When I was pregnant and found out I was having a girl, one of the first things I bought was a headband. And I’m so glad I did. People would constantly tell me what a cute baby boy I had, even when she was in a pink dress (What?!? That totally happened.) So I constantly had something on Alexie’s head, whether it was a bow, a headband or a flower. And of course, the hair accessory has to match her outfit. So the collection was a decent size. Now that I have 2 girls, the collection has only grown. Not long ago, I discovered Peach Bug and fell in love with their products.
Sabrina and Melissa were friends, then sister-in-laws and now business partners. They have 4 kids between them and when they had their daughters, Camila and Sadie, their love of dressing them up and doing their hair led them to create their own hair accessories. They named their shop after their daughters’ nicknames, Peach and Bug. An evening of crafting turned into a small business and boom, Peach Bug was born.
Their product line has expanded past their initial offerings of headbands. They now make slouchy beanies, bandana bibs, crochet hats and headbands, rag banners, top knot headbands, floral clips and a variety of headbands on nylon. And honestly, everything is super cute.
I have the most experience with their headbands because, well, that’s what my girls wear. They each have their particular preferences. Zoé doesn’t have a lot of hair so we kind of have to stick with the headbands for now. But that’s not a problem. These nylon headbands are super comfy and stretchy. Alexie used to love headbands but has since decided that she prefers hair clips. She finds most headband too tight and yells, “Stuck!’ when I put them on her head. But not the PeachBug headbands. She actually voluntarily put on a headband the other day, and wore it for over an hour! If that doesn’t say it’s a comfortable headband, I don’t know what does.
A lot of their stock is one-of-a-kind creations, each carefully handmade. These ladies put a lot of love into their products. And it totally shows. They are the perfect finishing touch for any look, from a casual outfit for Saturday shopping to a special piece for a wedding, baptism or photo shoot. Doesn’t Zoé look super cute in our annual Christmas photos? And that Peach Bug headband just brought out her cuteness.
