Clara's Closet Bow Co.

Hello there! My name is Melissa and I'm the owner of Clara's Closet Bow Co. I'm a work-at-home-mom living in Sioux Falls, SD. 

In May 2017, my daughter Clara Eloise was born, and I was so excited when she came out a girl (we didn't find out the gender beforehand). From Day 1, she was wearing a bow, pretty much at all times. Shortly after, I started making them myself - it was my favorite way to spend the few minutes of "me time" that you get as a new mom. It didn't take long before people were asking where I got her bows....and so I decided it was time to start making them for other people too. In June 2019, we welcomed our second baby girl to the family, Grace Marcella. It's safe to say, we're all about the bows over here. 

Every single bow and clip in my shop is made by me, by hand, from start to finish. (Sometimes the girls like to "help" - which usually means stealing the bows from me or putting the shipping labels, aka "stickers" on the packages).

I truly enjoy making them, but my favorite part about starting this business is seeing all your adorable kids wearing my bows and getting to know you all. Without you, it would still just be me and my scissors, crafting away at my dining room table.

Thank you for stopping by! :)
