You: Who are you?

Me: I'm Chrissy, owner and maker of Cinnamon + Daisies.

You: What is Cinnamon + Daisies?

Me: Well, it's a hair accessories shop. It started out solely with headbands for adults, but it's branching out into other realms. Now it has bridal pieces.

You: I saw those. They're pretty.

Me: Why, thank you!

You: So, how did you get into this business anyway?

Me: Well, I've always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby.

Me: Well, I've always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby.

You: ...

Me: Ok, ok! Last spring, near Derby time, I decided to make a floral piece that I could attach to my overly large straw brimmed hat. It's really a beach hat, but I thought maybe I could dress it up. Anyway, I bought tons of flowers - magnolias, peonies, poppies... I had figured it would be easy to attach them to headbands and wrap the bands around the hat. Well, I ended up liking the headbands with the flowers all by themselves! I've been wearing them practically everyday since last May.

You: And you decided to sell them?

Me: Well, to be honest, the thought of selling them had never even crossed my mind. A few weekends ago I was in Baltimore, MD, visiting with friends, when one suggested I make and sell them. The light bulb went off!

You: So, is this all you do then?

Me: Nope. I'm in graduate school. I'm studying to be a high school English teacher. I make the headbands in my free time, which I seem to have less and less of these days. But I don't mind. One day I'll be teaching young minds, today I just want to wrap them in headbands.
