It was 1958 and a young woman stood behind the counter of a small town hardware store. Her toddler wandered up and down the aisles, chatting with the customers as she tried to keep up with a new baby on her hip.
She had to know the difference in a Phillips and flat head screwdriver, remember customers by name and watch over her young children – all while keeping her perfectly coiffed blonde beehive in place.
The woman running that small town hardware store was my grandmother. The baby on her hip was my mother.
Since I was a little girl, my Grandmother has taught me the lessons that a lifetime as an entrepreneur provided her. Most grandmothers may not teach the valuable lesson of accruing interest to their 5 year old grand daughters – but mine did. And while I wasn’t always grateful for these – at times odd – words of wisdom, I see now the value in the lifetime of knowledge she poured into me.
My Grandmother has always been one for breaking the status quo in favor of doing things her own way. And if there’s anything I hope we’re known for at Blondly – it’s doing things differently.
So whenever we’re asked, “why blondly?”, our answer is always the same.
It all started with her. A young mother with a blonde beehive running a small town hardware store. And we hope to grow up to be like her.
