Rhinestoning with DeVille Rhinestones

If you have ever done costuming…whether it is dance, cosplay, burlesque, or anything else, you absolutely need rhinestones! That is why I am super excited to share about the fabulous woman who owns DeVille Rhinestones for this installment of my women owned spotlight!
DEVILLE Rhinestones

Who is DeVille Rhinestones?

DeVille Rhinestones is owned by plus size model and burlesque performer, Noella DeVille. Her business began almost two years ago when she realized that she was already spending so much money on rhinestones for her own costumes and that her friends were already buying and borrowing from her personal stock. It just made sense to start selling them!
What sets DeVille Rhinestones apart from other rhinestone sellers is that she primarily sells resin stones. This offers a more affordable option for people, like her, that like to cover all their costumes in rhinestones. Resin stones offer that sparkle but are also light-weight! This helps in costuming because the costumes really pop, but they are not too heavy to wear.
As her business grows, she plans to add some other products to her shop in the future. One of her most recent additions is enamel pins. She loves designing them, and they are great little accessories!

Where to find your rhinestones?

You can find DeVille Rhinestones online at https://devillesrhinestones.com and https://noelladeville.com. Currently, she is offering 15% off with code BBBF.
You can also follow her on Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr.

Changing the face of consignment shopping, Love Thy Curves offers a Plus Size Model

Contains affiliate links
I love shopping! I also love a good bargain, which is why I love consignment stores! However, as a plus size gal, sometimes the plus size selection at many consignment stores is slim pickings. That is why I am so excited to feature Love Thy Curves for this week’s Women-Owned Spotlight!

Love Thy Curves is a plus size women’s consignment boutique located in Boardman, Ohio. There you can find gently used plus size clothing, accessories, shoes, and more! You can also consign there and earn money for your shopping adventures. Seriously, if you have ever wondered how I can afford the awesome clothing in my closet, this is really how I do it! I recently got to sit down and talk with owner, Patti about how she put together this amazing shop!

While sitting with Patti, she explained that while cleaning her closet at the end of 2014, she found herself with so many things that she wanted to consign but nowhere to take them. It occurred to her that she should start her own consignment store for plus size women. After generating a business plan and finding a space in North Lima, Ohio, she turned that dream into reality.
More fashion from Love Thy Curves
By 2016, she decided to move her business to Boardman, Ohio where it has been ever since. The really unique thing about where her business is now is that the building was originally a China shop built in 1933 and also owned by a woman! It was the first retail store in Boardman. The fact that it was woman-owned is really awesome as the owner of it, Kaletta Cushing, made her business happen in a time when women did not really own businesses or work outside the home. It seems like the perfect place for another woman owned business to prosper!

One of the things Patti loves most is the stories people tell her like when they come to shop for a special occasion…whether it be a celebration or a funeral. Sometimes women just talk, telling stories about their lives. Patti loves the people who come in and share their lives with her. She loves helping them find the right outfit. 
For her, it is also a change of pace from her other career as a real estate agent. In this business, she is not competing with others, she is competing with herself which gives her a lot less headaches. As her children are older, she says this gives her purpose and something to do.
