Hi! I'm Stacy Thiot, or @stacythiot on Instagram, the owner and lady behind Poppy Lane & Co. @poppylaneandco. I hand make each bracelet, except when I am out of town, then my husband, Pierce, makes them from start to finish and I couldn't be more proud.
I have been married to Pierce since 2008 and we have two little ones; Adelaide, who is five, and Jackson, who is two. We live in sunny Los Angeles, but both grew up in the DFW area of Texas. We love to travel and go on adventures together and consider ourselves very lucky in our life together. I couldn't imagine a better husband, father or partner in life and in this small shop business we have going on.
I started this small shop in November of 2014 and have been blown away by the support of the handmade community and those who shop small. I'm so grateful for every single purchase and strive to have the best customer service. I try to keep my turnaround within a few days and the quality of my products the best they can be!
Making handmade bracelets kind of just fell into my lap and happened. My daughter, Adelaide, was gifted a few baby bracelets and one of them was fake plastic pearls that started chipping off paint once she was teething and the other was stretchy and small beads broke everywhere at one point. I loved the cute, tiny bracelets, but not the horrible quality and unsafe nature of the two I had. So, I made one out of real natural Mother of Pearl and fell in love. A few friends asked if I could make their daughters some as well, and Poppy Lane & Co. was born. I made it a point to only make fixed-clasp, non-stretchy bracelets since I had had a bad experience with them and didn't want to sell unsafe products. I also, search high and low for the highest-quality beads and materials; namely 14k Gold and Sterling Silver clasps, chains, beads, etc. I don't use fake metals that will tarnish or hurt your littles.
I love the way Poppy Lane & Co. has grown and evolved over time and can't wait to add new products to our shop.
