Early Holiday Shopping Alert

Hey bellas! Got a rare Saturday post to let you know to hurry hurry hurry if you want to do some holiday shopping.

One of my favorite companies for little bellas is taking a hiatus, effective of Monday, October 27, 2008. Jamila and the rest of the j. blossom gang recently lost the sublease on their commercial kitchen studio when the landlord decided to close her business. Until they find a new place of business, j.blossom is going on hiatus. All orders must be placed by 5PM Eastern time on Monday, so if you want to get your little one an adorable j.blossom’s ballerina, princess, or fairy doll gift set for $54, hurry!

I wish all the best to j.blossom — hope you find a new manufacturing facility soon!

  1. why do landlords always want to try shut people down. I pray that they are blessed with new premises ASAP

  2. Nice gifts for little girls. My nieces would appreciate it. Thanks for the tip-off Bella!

  3. j. blossom will find a better place to conduct their bussiness. This has nothing to do with j. blossom but I’m so excited I have to share. Last night Jigga and T.I. came to my town – Chartottesville, VA (UVA)We have had plenty of people speak out against having rap artist come here but the show was nice – no problems- except a little suspicous smoke in the air.

  4. That doll is too cute:)

  5. Thanks Afrobella for this announcement!

    I just want to clarify and prevent any misperceptions – no one “shut us down”.

    Two years ago when I needed to launch j.blossom and knew my tiny kitchen was too small for my big plans, I called nearly 100 places to rent a commercial kitchen facility and was turned down 99 times, even though I had a $1 million business insurance policy and was using food-grade natural ingredients. A friend of a friend had a natural hair salon and also space for a barbershop, but the barber shop didn’t work out. She graciously let j.blossom sublease the former barber shop space and I converted it into a commercial kitchen studio. When all those other places said no, she said yes — she didn’t even hesitate — and she became my landlord because I was subleasing the space. We had a great landlord-tenant relationship and in the process became close friends.

    She recently decided to close her hair salon, and that’s how I lost the sublease. She has been nothing but 100% supportive of j.blossom since day 1, and I am grateful for the opportunity she gave me when others wouldn’t take a chance on my company. I always knew I would grow out of the space, and so now’s the time to look for something bigger.

    Oh, and with a methadone clinic that just moved in to us next door in our building, and a bullet hole in the front window of the car insurance office on the corner of our building, it is DEFINITELY time for j.blossom to move!

    Onward and upward!

    Thanks everyone for your continued support of j.blossom and our mission to support little girls of color with positive, affirming, natural products.

    I will keep you all posted on our progress.

    Sincerely,

    Jamila

  6. I love these products but I noticed that rather than the $49 you quoted their website states $54. Can you clarify for this confused Bella? I would like to make some orders. Love this site and keep up all your positive vibes. Big Up Trini massive!

  7. Yvonne – good catch! Didn’t realize the price had increased. I had my info from a very early post I had written, so I edited my post to reflect that. Big respect, Trini!!

  8. I LOVE J. Blossom. It’s so difficult finding reaffirming black images and products for little girls. Love it!
