Mom's Market~Business Opportunity

A couple of the girls that have their businesses listed with us wanted to pass this information on~
“We are getting together and having a Handmade "Garage" sale/market with all handmade crafts (and homemade goodies) made by local moms.  

Saturday, May 8th
off of Drusilla (Wesson St.) 
8am to 12pm.  
We are really hoping for a big turnout...and any moms wanting to join are more than welcome. Right now we have "unique" style bows, woven headbands bibs, booties, burp rags, receiving blankets, chew dolls, photographs, purses made of t-shirts, POSSIBLY chapstick and crocheted hats.  So unless a mom makes the EXACT thing we would love for them to come!  The more the merrier!  And having customers would be good too.”
Please email Melissa (Quibby’s Bows) at melissa@thorncollc.com for more information.

Thank You!!!

Introducing... Baton Rouge's Favorite Finds!

Have you ever wondered where you can get a cute custom painted canvas for your new baby's nursery? Or a custom made outfit for your child's birthday? Or maybe you are looking to get that perfect bow to complete that perfect outfit. You have been to stores in town, but they don't always have exactly what you are looking for. There are a LOT of talented moms out there in the Baton Rouge area and it is not easy to find them. People have often come to me with questions like these. I guess cause I am always searching for the "best" deal and know where to go. So I thought other people must be asking the same questions out there too! So, I teamed up with my brother, Scott , to put together an online directory of work~at~home~mom businesses in the Baton Rouge area! No more searching for hours. So, if you have a business, or know another mom who does, that you would like to list in our directory, let us know! Email us at brfavoritefinds@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
