Lilla Rose With Tracy

We've been in the hair goods business since 1992 when my wife wanted that first pair of beaded chopsticks. She bought the materials to make them but then decided to go get the expensive ones at Nordstrom instead. I took her materials, fascinated by what they were selling for and started making them myself by hand in the garage. Enthusiastic, admiring friends bought them up. Suppliers referred us to contacts with major retailers nationwide and, several million pairs later, everlasting success was assured… almost.  The Lilla Rose product line centers around unique, functional and well made hair jewelry.  From our flagship Flexi Hair Clip, we have expanded to Hair Sticks, Orings, Hairbands, and Bobby Pins.  From there we rounded the line out with complimentarily designed You-Pins, and Badge Holders.  The wide variety of designs, patented sliding pin, and array of colors makes our Flexi hair clip unique.  The beaded wire really does flex around the hair.

Lilla Rose will be giving away four Flexi Clip gift certificates up to $16 value, one for each photo categories.

Nut n Bean

It all started in North Carolina back in 2005 while Katie was attending a dance festival. Her roommates wanted hummus and she knew a recipe. So there, in their North Carolina loft apartment, the beginnings of Nut ‘n Bean were born. Later that year she met Yvonne and the rest is history.  Through their love of cooking, food, peanut butter and hummus, along with their investment in a Vita Mix blender, Katie and Yvonne started playing with new flavor combinations and recipes. They have perfected the flavors to the point that their creations are now craved by friends and family all over their home town.  In 2010  Nut 'n Bean launched its name and their homemade business cards for their guests to take home.  Over the last year Katie and Yvonne have further perfected their recipes and worked with hugely talented friends to produce Nut 'n Bean's redesigned cards and menu.  They are currently in the process of launching a partnership that will provide the Bay Area with fantastic specialty dips and spreads that they hope will become a part of everyone's daily lives.  They ship within the US.  You can find the Nut n Bean flavors on their website and if you see something you like, send them a message or an email to get the order process started!
