Online Store - Taking A Vacation!

We know!  Vacation already?  We just opened our ONLINE STORE, but we are already in need of a vacation.  The store on 19th Street is doing so well we simply do not have the time or the manpower to manage our online store.  So for now, we want to focus on our local community and our brick + mortar.  As soon as Thread grows - and we know it will - we will bring our online store back!  And of course we will let you know as soon as we do.

Again, thank you to all our customers, family + friends for your continued support.  Thread's success is exceeding our wildest expectations.

Be sure to come see us on 19th St.  We are getting new merchandise daily!

Handmade Hair Clips.

We have the cutest hair clips in the store right now!  
Thanks to Carina Orraca's new line coo-chum-bella.  
Get them while they last!

Here are some of our favorites:

Small Clips ~  $6
Large Clips ~ $8

We have signage!  Our new friends + neighbors @ Sweet Tea - Tiffany + Michael - have several businesses.  One of which is doing window decals.  So when we found that out, we had them make signage for our front windows!  One week down and we are feeling entirely at home!  

How great does that window look!?  Thanks Tiffany + Michael.
If you are ever shopping on 19th, be sure to come see us
AND have lunch at Sweet Tea.

Kari + I have some favorites already.

Babies on 19th Street.

Lucas is helping bring in lots of babies to Thread.
We think it's important that moms know we are a kid friendly store.
We have a Kid Corral filled with toys where you can find
kids playing any day of the week.

We know how challenging it is to shop with kids, but we think we
have found the solution in our Kid Corral.  Would you believe
kids don't want to leave Thread b/c they want to 
stay and play?  It's true!

Come by and see us!

Introducing Beanies & Sam + Lucy.

If you have been to our new store, you know we have two great companies who rent the upstairs from us.  Their space is not a retail front, but rather a workshop.  We are so happy to have friends and their great companies sharing the same space at Thread.

Beanies is the baby of Sommer Blackburn.  It is a new children's clothing line that is custom ordered.  The clothing is sweet, innocent and absolutely adorable.  The Spring Collection is full of seersucker and pastel colors for both boys and girls.  Sizes range from newborn to size 6.  Check out Beanies on Facebook and of course you can see her line at Thread.


Sam + Lucy is owned by Claire Elliot + Jill Hatley.  They make amazing personalized gifts and monogram almost anything.  Come check out their stuff at Thread.  You will die for their monogrammed boxers for little boys, beach/swim bags and snack cups.  Find out more about them online at Facebook and at their online store.
