Owner, Lilac Market Headbands

If you would have asked me in 2017 what I would be doing a year from now, starting a business would have been the last words out of my mouth. Now, a year into this, it is the best decision I ever made. This business purely started from a love/hate relationship with headbands. Loved the headbands but hated the prices I had to pay for them! So I learned how to use a sewing machine to make a few headbands for myself and some friends and now here we are.

The name Lilac Market was inspired by my mom who passed away in 2015. My mom was truly my best friend and the first person I would call to share any exciting news with. When I first started making the headbands all I could think about was wanting to call her to tell her things. She also had a love for gardening and flowers and the floral prints are often inspired by my memories of her gardening. Growing up, I can fondly remember having lilac flowers in the yard and helping her plant them. To this day, they are my favorite flower. On top of all of this, purple was her favorite color so it was only fitting to name the business in memory of her.
