Val's Happy Customers


From Norma in Roy, Washington

Hi Val,
Just want to let you know we love the bows we bought from you.  They are soooo cute!  Was so glad there is one purple one.  We had to buy a Vikings TShirt.  So glad there is a purple one to go with it.  We are very happy with them.  If I know anyone who wants bows I will recommend you.  Again thank  you.


Hi Val,
Thank you for your very prompt service. The bows are so professional done and I am extremely delighted with them. You were very kind to send the little extra items as well, they are certainly appreciated. It is such a pleasure to see such care given to an item that at most is usually quickly made in haste by other companies. Thanks for your expertise in making these beautiful bows, our little Poco will certainly look spectacular wearing them.
Sincerely,
Carol 12-03-2011


Val, 

So, I'm in my weekly Petsmart visit with Pea, and I see this woman w/a 7 month old Yorkie. He had this really pretty aqua colored double-loop bow in. Very well made. The woman, Stephanie, compliments Pea's bow. We start a conversation about bows. I tell her how pretty hers is and how well made it looks and she tells me that it is custom. I tell her that I buy mine from someone as well and hers are all sewn by hand. I get out your business card...guess what??? The bow in that puppy's head looks so well made...because YOU MADE IT!!! You talk to Stephanie on the phone, not by email like me. She's from Rocky Mount, NC, just like me. She started buying from you for the same reason I began buying from you...your story on your web-page. You'll find that most Southerners don't really trust large corporations/companies. Most ladies I know (and most people overall) believe in people who have worked hard for a living. Rocky Mount is surrounded by three things: hospitals, factories and tobacco fields. When she and I read you worked making circuit boards...it actually meant something to us. Never, ever delete that page.

 Now...on the lighter note...when I got your first bow...I was HOOKED!!!! :x lovestruck But really...two ladies...and one business card later...it's the SAME bow maker! I still gave her extra business cards to hand out! She's hooked too...she says she's going to call you and tell you she met me! My next order is coming soon! (in day or so...) I saw that cookie monster bow...oh my!!! Pea HAS to have it!! 
Happy Mardi Gras Week!

Hi Val!  Hope this finds you well.  Just wanted to share a pix I took today of Tiffy.  I have enough Xmas bows to change every day ... sometimes twice!! :)  I buy all her bows from you and one other friend. But, yours last much longer as do your bands!  This big red bow is at least 4-5 years old but looks like new. And when I 'clean out' her little dresser of bows .... I gift many to my Vet for him to use.
 
Wishing you a very happy and healthy holiday season!  Hugs from us ... down south.

Oh my heavens……I’m never going to get any work done today.  Every time I look at the bows I see something that makes me go Ohhhhhh J

 

I love what you did with the leopard/hot pink heart bows…they’ll be PERFECT!!

And the plaid with the crown – is AMAZING!!!!      

The Christmas ones with the light bulbs are so cute

And the Fancy ones are prettier than I imagined!

The pumpkin bows are going to be the finishing touch for their fall dress,

and……the WVU (blue/gold) bows are just what the dresses needed to “top them off”

 

All these make my heart smile…..but the ones that make my lips smile as well are the “thing one and two”….you did an awesome job on these!

 

Ok I’d better get some work done I’m sure I’ll be needing more bows before you know it!!!!

HI VAL!! I RECEIVED THE BOWS LATE LAST WEEK, AND I MUST SAY THAT THEY ARE ADORABLE, AND SO MUCH MORE DURABLE THAN I EXPECTED!! THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS THAT IT WASN'T THE BOWS THAT MADE THE POOCH FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU....IT WAS THE BISCUITS!!!! WOULD YOU BE SO KIND AS TO SEND ME THE BRAND. THEY LOOK ORGANIC, AND HE LOVES THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE ON THE SOFT SIDE AND ARE EASY FOR HIM TO CHEW. SO, IT YOU GET A MOMEMT, from*jodi WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHERE I CAN GET THESE FOR BUDDY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM GO FOR A BONE LIKE HE DID FOR THE ONES YOU GIFTED HIM. IF THEYARE LOCAL TO YOU, PLEASE SEND ME A PAYPAL BILL, AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO PAY FOR THEM, OR SEND A WEBSITE. THE CAMOFLAUGE WORKED!! HE TOTALLY DISAPEARED!!
You can find the little bisquits at Petsmart..  GRREAT Choice Brand..  They come in a bag. :)

Val,
OMG OMG OMG...The bows came Monday, I am late doing feedback and all that stuff, been busy I'm sure you know about being busy. I just wanted to drop you a email to tell you personally how much I LOVE THE HELLO KITTY BOWS,  I could not be any happier and I am so glad I let you pick everything out and surprise me. She is getting a bath today and I am putting a set of her bows in so I hope to get a picture of her to upload so everyone can see her sporting her "Hello Kitty" pig tails. Val, I am so glad I found you on eBay, you are the seller I have ever dealt with and your quality is unmatched. When I first started buying bows off eBay I bought from you and 2 others and I can testify I still have your bows from over 2 years ago that are still stiff with the decoration attached, all I need to do is find the time to sew new bands on some of them. Needless to say the bows purchased from the other 2 sellers, and I won't list their seller name, have either frayed and look terrible or Isabelle pulled out the bow and being the little demon she can be at times ripped the decoration off, didn't swallow it thank God, I have actually thrown away all of the bows purchased from the other sellers.

I don't know how you do it but keep it up! I hope the effort you put forth in making your bows and the level of quality you provide pays off big time for you, because you deserve it. I never have to worry about Isabelle swallowing a decoration off of one of your bows because, 1-she can't get them off her head and 2-you sew the little things so well the one of two times she managed to get the bow off her head she gave up on the decoration and just left the bow in the floor.

Feel free to edit this email if you like and post it on Facebook, you deserve the Praise Isabelle and I love you to pieces for making such beautiful and safe bows for all the furry babies out there, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!

I am going to send another email right behind this one with another special request, SHOCK, it will be another order, don't hate me...I swear this will be the last special request order a while.

Sincerely, Brian and Isabelle

Hi Val! Two years ago I got the most amazing 4lb little girl, and immediately decided that I wanted to use bows on her for a couple reasons. I looked all over the internet searching for bows that were small enough for her at a price I could actually afford, and was thrilled when I found your store! I just wanted to thank you for making the cutest and best quality bows at great prices...I am absolutely addicted! I get comments from my neighbors almost every day about how adorable her little bows are, and my friends look forward to seeing what she will be wearing next. I have been and will continue to be a loyal customer and can not wait to see what you come up with next! Thanks again!

Hi Val,

Hope you are doing well.  Zoe loves her her bow wardrobe so much!  As promised, here's a picture of her wearing one of you wonderful creations.  Keep on making them, we just LOVE you!

Hugs,

Sylvie

 


Thanks Val.. I love you bows, and so do the Judges at the shows.

Check out Tucker.  He is wearing one of "Bowsbyval" topknot bows, and took AKC reserve winners dog that weekend 
Kind regards

Hi Val

Mia gets compliments all the time with your bows! She wears them to the office daily. She’s wonderful at soothing children and helping them feel at ease, and we use her for role playing and expressing feelings, and learning empathy.  She even has sat on little girls’ laps while they are testifying in court against their abuser – official therapy dog.
I've been giving a few of the bows away occaisionally as little gifts to friends with shih-tzu's as well. Your officially my addiction! They are so beautiful. I have to say I have ordered from others in the past but yours are BY FAR the most beautiful artistically and in quality. hands down!

Thanks you Michelle

Val, this is the easiest testimonial I’ve ever written.  I am so blessed to share my life and my home with 3 toy poodles and because they really are girlie girls, I really enjoy dolling them up in Val’s bows.  Here’s the thing – you won’t find this kind quality combined with someone who understands dogs and their masters anywhere else.  I’ve tried. While I have found some wonderful people who are doing some pretty cool stuff – I always came back to Val and now I won’t buy my bows anywhere else.  Val makes these bows so good that even if you have a slightly frugal nature like myself – you can reuse them.  Val sells the rubber bands that even someone like me can sew back on  See, for me, its not about saving money and not buying more bows – its about buying more bows and having them LAST.  I’ve been shopping with Val for 3 years and I still have the first bows she made me.   My girls weigh 6 to 8 pounds so I like to buy the 5/8 double loop or the 7/8 single loop.  Two of my girls can “sport” the 5/8 double loop or the 7/8 single loop because their hair is really thick on the crown – I use the short hair on the crown just above the ears.  I added that because some groomers pull the long ear hair through the bows and that destroys the hair on their ears and is a great place for a “mat” to happen.  But one of my girls has silky fine hair on her crown and she really does best with the Korkie bows.  While we’re talking about Korkie bows… it doesn’t matter if you put these in upside down!  In fact, when I’m in a hurry and I’m dragging the girls out with me to go visit our local nursing home or shopping (yes I take them shopping) – I can easily put the Korkie bows in myself.  Ok – I’m taking up too much space but there’s one more thing you need to know.  Val should probably put a warning label on her bows that says something like -  Warning:  These bows can be addictive.  Because you will want more… I always say that Val’s bows are like eating potato chips because I can’t eat just one potato chip and I am the er… uh….the Proud owner of 6 (I won’t confess to more) see-through-craft boxes that are full of Val’s bows!  ………………Oh, and did I happen to mention she’s also one of the coolest people I know?........ Sincerely, Victoria Foth

 

 


 

Dear Val,
Can't wait to get the bows we ordered for our Sadie!  We absolutely love the ones we have purchased from you a few times before.  We have received lots of complements on them.  I always make sure I tell them where and how we purchased them! 
Your store is just amazing.  Is this a different one?  Unless you changed the background and colors, etc.
Anyways, I saw many more items I would love to get soon!  I could get into some serious trouble with the hubby!  Ha ha ha!
 
Take care & God Bless!  You have a wonderful talent!
Helen Moore
& Sadie!!!
 

 


 

I have purchased bows from you via ebay. I just love them so much. I have a yorkshire terrier and I like big bows!! Your bows are so beautiful. I am introducing them to many yorkshire terrier owners!!! especially on the forum.. on Yorkietalk!! Thanks for beautiful work.. I would love to order more sometime soon!!! Michiko Kita

Haruka is so cute!!


From Meredith in Atlanta, Ga

"Val's bows are the absolute BEST...they're really more like little
jewels than bows!  The quality is truly exceptional and she is
unbelievably nice, and really goes way beyond the extra mile to make
customers happy."

 


From Judy in Connecticut

With over 400 bows and counting, is it any wonder I consider Val to be the most phenomenal bow maker on the planet.  Her amazing creativity and attention to detail are only surpassed by her superior workmanship and fantastic service.  She is the only "artist" I will buy my doggie bows from...there are none better, anywhere!!!  I wouldn't take one step out the door without my ShihTzu dressed up in one of Val's masterpieces and they never fail to get the attention they deserve.
 
On a personal note...we have become great friends which I feel is the highlight of our business relationship.  I will continue to wait, with much anticipation, for all her new creations.  Thanks for everything Val, I am a customer for life, Judy M.

 

 


Dear Val
I received my order today and I couldn't be more pleased! I found you through a recommendation on the YOrkie Talk forum. Your bows are pretty on your site, but they're STUNNING in person! They're little works of art and I'm fascinated with every one of them. I have a little boy yorkie and it's so hard to find boy bows--you have an incredible selection. I was only sorry that I didn't find the little duck face bow until after I'd ordered! Keep up the fabulous work, Val--I'll definitely be back for more! Thank you! Paulette

 



Bridget Simon here of Simon shih-tzu

I was so fortunate to find your wonderful bows Val. And now that you have been creating custom bows for my dogs, they stand out even more in the show ring. They just add that extra pizzazz to the topknots and even the expressions. I would be lost without you and your marvelous talent Val! keep up the great bows!!!!

 Hi! I have purchased numerous items from you over the past year or so, and I have even posted your ebay id and information on yorkietalk.com because there were people on there complaining how they could never find quality bows that were reasonably priced, and tons of people have written to me and thanks me for referring them to you! They said you were a God send! I AGREE!!! Anyway, I was wanting to send you a picture of my 2 babies with their korkie bows in, as it's been a while since they have worn any. Abbie, my big girl, had gum in her hair, I couldn't tell you how that happened, but we had to cut her entire top knot off! So, it's just now getting back to where it needs to be! Anyway, can you send me your email address so as you can see my beautiful babies with their beautiful bows??? Thanks Val! You are the greatest!!!

From Sara 10/22/07
Recived my bows today and I am delighted. There is not a bettter place to purchase bows. I'm so thrilled, they hold up so well, Val's customer service is 200% and shipping is super fast plus the bows always arrive in mint condition. I tell my friends about Val's bows and I will certainly be back for more myself! A million thanks to you Val! Sara
