My name is Nikki and I'm the one woman show behind Antler & Acre. By trade I am a Registered Veterinary Technician and I recently became a mom. I have a sweet boy named Henrik and he has without a doubt changed my life for the better. You may find a few pictures of him on our Instagram feed as I just can't help myself!
To be honest, when I get asked how I started making scrunchies, I often say it happened by accident. Over the last 8 years I have operated many online businesses from bath and body products, handmade watches, earrings and a line of outdoor apparel. I constantly am learning how to make things and I'm sure this won't change anytime soon. When I started Antler & Acre (before it was even called that!) I started selling DIY Scrunchie Kits, as scrunchies had come back with a vengeance and the market was very saturated. I found joy in seeking out fabric patterns to use and which other ones to pair with them. After these went live, I started getting asked if I sell the scrunchies themselves. I remember being surprised, again due to the saturated market, but happy to oblige and sell a couple to those that asked. Fast forward 2 months and Antler & Acre was thriving and already in 5 retail locations. I couldn't be more grateful for my customers and followers.
Antler & Acre's high quality scrunchie fabric is sourced locally (within driving distance from home!). Each item is handmade, packed and shipped by me out of Mission, BC.
