This is the first vintage fur pom pom I ever made.
My actual brainstorm was to make “hair poms.” [Maybe i should have been brainstorming the location of my hairbrush ?]
I listed a few of these recycled fur pom poms, and soon I had customers buying them in large quantities. I wondered why on earth anyone would order so many hair poms at once. Of course I found out that they weren’t buying them to wear in their hair — they were hat knitters who needed them to make their knit hats pOp!
I started getting a lot of requests for faux fur hat poms too, so I sourced some luxury faux furs, made some, and added them to my shop too.
In the past three years, I think I must have made more than 10,000 pom poms.
Last week, 100 of these mini mink shoe poms made their way to New York.
–And I just finished this faux fur 105-pom order today; on its way to Michigan.
As long as knitters are busy knitting, I’ll be busy making poms for them!
