Hi there, everyone!! It’s been way too long!!
Things have been down-right nutty since you’ve last heard from me… lots of things are a-brew at the LOinLONDON® headquarters! Despite the craziness and excitement, we have finally managed to joined (errr, become active) in the Etsy community! This means many exciting things for everyone involved including…
- International customers (we love you) may now shop online… no more calling in orders! Unfortunately, our website is incapable of processing international orders at this point… and soooooo… you may now place your orders on Etsy twenty-four hours a day!
- We will be listing a number of one-of-a-kind pieces on Etsy that you will not find on our regular website, this includes illustrations and fine art of all sorts… along with other knick-knacks that we may feel like creating at any given moment!
- Etsy is a great community of like-minded creatives! it is a wonderful resource for inspiration, encouragement and a platform to promote our products…
…and make new friends………………………………………………………..
In the picture above you’ll meet Mo one of our new Etsy friends and the founder of Mo’s Bows Memphis (not to mention an awesome kid). Mo started his bow tie company at the ripe age of nine years old… talk about ambition. This kid is an inspiration to all of us!! Today, i received my first package from Mo with two fabulous bows (a royal polka dotted bow for my fiance and a custom bracelet bow tie for myself). My order arrived perfectly packaged in a burlap printed bag with a postcard telling Mo’s story. It reads, “Mo’s Bows is a company I started in Memphis, TN in 2011 when i was just 9 years old. I couldn’t find fun and cool bow ties, so one day I decided to use my granny’s scrap fabric to make and sell my own. I like to wear bow ties because they make me look good and feel good. Designing a colorful bow tie is just part of my vision to make the world a fun and happier place. -Moziah”
We wish Mo the best of luck making the world a fun and happier place… and aim to join him in this endeavor! For more on Mo, you may visit his Etsy site at https://www.etsy.com/shop/mosbowsmemphis or visit his website http://www.mosbowsmemphis.com/p/story.html
We hope you will also visit our new Etsy site… https://www.etsy.com/shop/loinlondon. It is our sincere desire that when you are finished viewing the products in our shop (or Mo’s), a smile comes to your face and your day becomes a little… or preferably a lot… brighter! … Enjoy what you see and talk to you soon!
LOVE, LO :)
