I am a huge advocate for small businesses and “handmade” artisans. Â I grew up surrounded by them! Â Many of my extended family members are involved in small business, my mom runs a small family-owned business run out of her kitchen, my sister is an artist, and I have always been an entrepreneur (well, at least since I was a student in middle school!)
Anyways, I get daily emails from GroopDealz. Â It’s like Groupon but mostly for handmade items! Â Many of the deals come from small businesses and stay-at-home-moms. Â Naturally, I immediately fell in love with this site.
I have purchased several deals over the last few months (and silly me never took pictures or blogged about how great they were… I’ve learned my lesson!). Â I wanted to brag about these awesome hair ties I got, though!
I purchased this deal a few weeks ago, and thank goodness I bought two sets! Â The listing was for a “grab bag” of elastic hair ties that have recently become pretty trendy. Â My local clothing boutique shop sells some for over $3 a piece! Â I knew they’d be great, so I purchased two sets (12 elastics altogether). Â I received them in the mail a couple of weeks ago and they’re GREAT! Â I’m wearing one in my hair as I write this. Â 🙂
I love these hair ties because they’re cute, functional, and they don’t leave that disgusting crease in your hair when you change your hairstyle up throughout the day. Â They’re also super gentle in my hair – no more risking yanking out my hair in the morning if I sleep with my hair up, AND they’re great for the gym!
So there’s my little brag post. Â Go check out Sweet Pink Zebra‘s online store! Â She’s great!
