Introducing: The Colette Headband

 If you haven't noticed already, the Colette headband is NOW available for purchase in the Oh, Sweet Joy SHOP! The Colette is a spin off of the Fayette headband that is so near & dear to my heart. Instead of coming to a bandana-like point, we've got a bow shape going on here - perfectly feminine. You can still tuck in the "bow" to make a simple knot and most of these ways to tie the Fayette still apply. The Colette comes in a perfect assortment of retro candy shoppe inspired solid colors and polka dots.

 I want to introduce the colors/prints for you and then some fine print/housekeeping is below all the fun stuff. 

The polka dots: 
Lemon Drop - ((driving away those winter blues)) Yellow Polka Dot

Aqua Dot - Mint/Aqua Polka Dot

Bubble Gum - Pink Polka Dot

Blueberry Pie - ((definitely a favorite of mine)) Navy Polka Dot

The solids: 
Sour Apple - ((Color of the Year)) Green Solid

Orange Soda - ((perfect for spring)) Orange Solid

Raspberry - Bright Pink Solid

Teal Taffy - ((teal/turquoise fusion))

Minty Fresh - ((not expecting this one to last long)) Mint/RE blue solid

-I'm PUMPED to tell you that these headbands are already sewn & ready to ship! Please allow 2-3 business days to process, package, and ship orders.
-The Holiday Collection sold out twice within the day, so if you see a color you want, you should go ahead and snag it. If some of the colors sell out, but then I add restock of a color you want and you've already placed an order - go ahead and order it, shoot me an email and I will combine your order/refund your shipping cost.
-All discount codes expire Friday night at midnight.
-As mentioned above, I have LOTS that are ready to ship, but if you add a Fayette to your order then it will take a bit longer for your order to get to you, as those are still made to order. You can absolutely use the discount codes for Fayette headbands, as well. 
-Some of my favorite bloggers are helping me out with the launch and if you happen to read some of the same blogs I do, you'll find plenty of discount codes. 
-Once these are sold out, I have limited fabric to make a TINY bit more inventory. These will be made to order, however. With that said, if you purchase a restocked item after you've already ordered one, your order will be delayed unless you don't mind paying shipping twice. 
-Unfortunately, USPS bumped up shipping costs. I still try to keep mine as low as possible. I've changed all of my shipping prices to reflect the same shipping cost  - whether you buy one or four!
