Holiday 2011 Vendor Feature: TWO FLORIDA GIRLS

Two Florida Girls
shop | facebook

We are two sisters, born and raised in the Sunshine State. We love our God, our family and our home state. 🙂 We hope you find something that makes you smile and think of sun-filled days! Our items are great as fun, affordable gifts for family, friends, kids, coworkers, teachers, coaches…or heck, even yourself!

We opened our shop almost three years ago after Kati (the sewer) made Amy (the computer girl) a coffee cozy for her birthday. Amy said, “I love these! We could sell them!” And the rest, as they say, is history. Since then, we’ve developed new products and have expanded beyond the coffee cozy. In addition to our first item, we now create gadget cozies, bean bags, onesies, shirts and hair clips. And, see that adorable little blond up there? She’s sporting our newest product–messy ruffle headbands!

We’ve participated in Homespun Chic Marketplace since the first show last fall and we’re now coordinating the show. We’re excited to see you there and look forward to meeting everyone!

Dress It Up Boutique

My name is Eve. I have always been crafty, creating beauty with found pieces of fabric, accenting items with ribbons and buttons. Realizing I could highlight any outfit with custom hair accessories, I began making items for myself, friends, and family. Soon, people requested custom headbands for special events. Dress It Up Boutique was launched. Dress It Up Boutique provides unique designs for newborns to adults, helping to dress up every moment of the day, from casual happenings to formal occasions. Our hair bows and headbands are hand-crafted and sewn with quality grosgrain ribbon. All ends are heat-sealed to prevent fraying. Dress It Up Boutique custom designs items for special requests, believing every moment is a moment to celebrate. Dress it up!
