Gabrielle Goodwin Accessorizes America


A while back, we featured little Gabrielle Goodwin, the brilliant mind behind GaBBY Bows, a line of handy and fashionable hair accessories for girls.

Since then, Goodwin’s business has prospered greatly; in fact, she is now supplying her hair accessories to 50 Once Upon a Child stores in 16 states across the US. 

When she was just five years old, Goodwin demanded that her mom assist her in creating a barrette that would stay in her hair. By age seven, along with mom Rozalynn, she had launched her company, and that company hasn’t stopped thriving since.


Running a successful company can be time-consuming indeed, but Goodwin still manages to make straight A’s at school, all while handling inventory for her GaBBY Bows, serving as the head saleswoman at trade shows, appearing as a guest speaker at community groups and schools, writing personal thank-you cards to customers who order online, and assisting with sales taxes. In addition, she hosts a string of events called “GaBBY Play Dates” to teach young girls living in children’s shelters about entrepreneurship.

A children’s book about Goodwin and GaBBY Bows, entitled “Gabby Invents the Perfect Hair Bow,” will be be published this summer by Entrepreneur Kid.

Goodwin commented,

“It feels really good to walk in a store and see your own product on the shelves! I am grateful to have a LOT of supporters and be expanding.”
