Piper Rose Hair Accessories NOW OPEN!

I'm thrilled to announce that my super talented sister has just opened her own Etsy shop, Piper Rose Hair Accessories, featuring an assortment of beautiful hair accessories. Her pieces are made with extra care, with each metal piece being soldered on as opposed to simply glued for extra durability! She offers a variety of styles and price points and is happy to create a custom piece for you if you don't find a fav. already in her shop.

If you are local be sure to stop by the Kawartha Beads booth at the Lindsay Mom2Mom Sale on March 30th at the Armouries in Lindsay where I will have a small sampling of these wonderful hair accessories available.
