Nikycole :: Giveaway
Nikycole is an Etsy shop that features beautiful, handmade Magnetic Curtain Tie-Backs, and Fabric Flower Accessories for your hair, clothes, or bags.
If you aren't familiar with magnetic tie-backs for curtains, they are a handy thing to have around. Instead of drilling unsightly holes in your walls, you just wrap a tie back around each panel and the magnet holds it in place!
Veronica opened Nikycole at the end of February and began stocking items in early March. If you take a peek at her shop, which is named after her daughter ("Nikycole" is a nickname), she already has a great variety to choose from! The tie-backs come in all sorts of patterns and colors, and Veronica also does custom orders if you have something specific in mind. She's partial to the burlap, and I have to say that those are pretty cute.
I love that if you change the look of your room and the tie backs don't "go" with the look any more, you can easily repurpose them!
Veronica had that idea in mind when she recently began adding hair accessories to the shop. Clients have their choice of headbands, hair clips, hair bow holders, or brooches.
My personal favorite is the Gray and Pink Paris Headband, which I could see doubling as an adorable brooch with a white tee and jeans!
The wonderful thing about Nikycole is that Veronica knows her customers don't each have the same tastes, which is why she is open to taking custom orders if you'd rather have an alligator clip or brooch instead of a headband.
Some other cute options:
In addition to showcasing her creations at Nikycole, Veronica also blogs at Life in the Thrifty Lane. She shares posts on crafts, recipes, Before and Afters, organizing, and couponing.
