Wool Felt Wonders

Introducing our new wool felt Leah clips and bands. Each is handmade of gorgeous, thick wool felt fabric with a texture all its own. Bands are attached to stretch lace and clips are secured to alligator-style clips (and our part of our holiday promo below). They are perfect for ladies of any age and the bands can be made in baby sizes.

Check them out on our etsy shop!

Penelope or Pentunia... hmm, which one?

Some of our favorite items we've ever had were our peacock clips (RIP). We've had a lot of requests to bring these back but have discontinued them. We did, however, in the midst of a much-needed inventory cleanup, come across 2 final clips - the Penelope and Petunia. We've listed our final 2 as featured items on our etsy shop for those who have asked.

Bijou Market

We love, love, love the Bijou Market. It's an incredible boutique/marketplace being held this November 19 and 20 in Provo, UT. It features tons (like over 40) unique vendors (like us) who sell beautiful handcrafted items. We've sold here in the past and couldn't be more excited for this year - it seriously is our favorite thing we do all year.

Here's just a glimpse at what some of the vendors will have this year:

We can't wait... and of course - we'll be selling some never-before-seen hair love including some pretty darling baby/tiny girl stuff.

We are soo happy to announce that we are now beginning to sell Academy J products in a few select stores here in Utah. Academy J merch is now available at Liberation Clothing located at 7918 south 1300 east in Sandy UT. They also sell grrreat jeans and tops, as well as merchandise from other locals (kind of like us!).

And, for those of you in the Utah county area, Academy J products will be available at the new Blue Hazel boutique located right next to 4-chairs furniture in Lindon, UT at 150 south State street. This is a brand new store that is opening May 1st of this year and will feature local artists as well as some designers from out of state. We also are creating a new baby/children line we'll be selling here.. Academy Kids...

We can't wait!

Photos Please!

Our headbands are cool, but our blog is lame. We kind of maybe want to spice it up a bit. Maybe you could send us a picture of you wearing your one of your AJ headbands? Maybe? Please? If you do, maybe we could, with your permission, post it on our blog to show everyone else how great it looks on you?
