WINK, Texas (FOX 24) – A local woman is proving you can do it all. She started a business during the pandemic that’s taken off and that’s only a small part of her success.
Little Rowan Thames just turned one.
“Once you have a child, it’s something that definately changes the way you think about your future,” said Casey Thames, Rowan’s father.
The baby is the inspiration behind Jaycie Thames’ new business called Row’s Bowtique.
“I really bought a lot of things for her prior to being born, and that’s when I really realized the market that is children’s clothing and bows,” said Jaycie Thames, Row’s Bowtique Owner.
The Wink woman started the business in August of last year and already she has more than 400 customers.
“As far as the pandemic goes, I mean I was already home,” said Jaycie Thames. “I’ve been really lucky and I have a 60-percent return rate on my customers.”
She’s definately been able to stretch time in a sense,” said Casey Thames who is also Jaycie’s husband.
“It’s a lot, I love it though. It’s definately been a passion,” said Jaycie Thames.
Along with juggling a family and new business, she also works in the oil industry full-time.
“There’s a lot of scheduling involved,” said Jaycie Thames.
“I’m definitely proud of my wife and everything that she’s able to accomplish,” said Casey Thames.
Here’s something else unique about Row’s Bowtique, she also makes special bows for preemie babies.
She was inspired when she saw preemies at the hospital when her daughter was born.
