Is this place ever open? I saw it online and have been to the area 2 times, it's ridiculous! you would think if someone was in business, they would be there, fill the orders, return emails/contacts.

They have a facebook page contact her there. She seems very nice. She has a family also. Maybe she is busy with them.

I think she only opens like one or two days a week. The shop doesn't have much from what I have seen. You would probably be better off ordering from her off her fb page.

EXPENSIVE!?!? I DOUBT THAT! some of the big bows in there I have paid $20 and up for when tot n teen and strasburg was still open. These are quality bows at a very reasonable price. This sounds like to me that the posters here r trying their hand at bows and are jealous. They make all the bows for the big competitive cheer teams in Knoxville, and they r proud to pay these prices because THEY know how much the high end boutiques charge for them. Go to walmart and pay maybe a dollar less and get their cheap looking ones. I love the bows at A Bow full Candi amd my daughter loves them and so do all my nieces

You get what ya pay for. If you want a good quality bow you will pay for it.She is cheaper than some of these other bow people. Just get on the internet and find out. Evidently you don't know about good bows. My daughter has over 60 bows costing anywhere from 10 to 14 dollars. Don't mind paying good money for good bows my kids are worth it.
we LOVE candi bows

you won't find a better bow than a candi bow! & the prices are well worth it! other people have tried to make bows & charge way over what candi does & they dont look half as good as candi's do! i can send her a picture of just about anything & within days i have a big candi bow to match perfectly! you dont see anybody else around here making bows for cheer dance, softball, & any other teams!

Looks like it won't matter anyway! The sign is gone from her door at store. She must have closed down.

Not sure why someone with that much potential wouldn't work hard to succeed!?

maybe because spending time with her boys & her family means more! candi does have alot of potential & even of she did close the shop im sure she'll still have way more business than any other bow maker on this town!

jealous much? i know for a fact that people have torn candi's bows apart to see how they're made, & even put parts of candi's bows in their bows. i guarantee you wont catch nobody doing that to anybody else's bow cause they aint sh*t compared to candi's!

These bows are awful. I ordered one for my daughter and it was nothing like I had ordered & the bow was bigger than her head! Those are way too large for these babies!

If a product or service is too high for your taste, simply don't purchase it. As for the bows bought by unnamed person "hmmm," I, too, think some of the bows are a bit too large for my girls' taste, but only because they are older and like the smaller ones. So now those are the ones we buy. Did you express your concerns about the bow you ordered? I'm sure she'd have been happy to correct the order, or just make you another one. She also has another full time job and 2 small children, but she really goes out of her way to make her customers happy. She can't do that if you don't let her know, and I'm sure she'd be sad to hear someone was dissatisfied with one of her bows :(

I've yet to find the quality of bows she makes anywhere else for under $25-30 online or in shops here, and those aren't custom orders. Most of the ones we have gotten from her are. Much of her business is from her Facebook page/store, and if she wasn't doing well she wouldn't have been featured(not a paid advertisement) on Channel 3 News.

I drive about 40 mins to pick up our orders, or let my kids pick out something from the shop. Be it a bow, a bow board made by Mrs. Amber Bailey, or another consigned item. Well worth it to support a fantastic, small town business. My girls and nieces all sport Candi Bows.:)

I want this to be known. Candi is an awsome bowmaker. If she wasnt the best I would have her making bows for my tutus. Her prices are not unreasonable for the quality of bow you get.

These people are obviously jealous of you Candice....I don't even have a daughter and I buy bows from her lol....my niece and sister in law love them!!! I'd rather pay good money and get a good product then end up with some cheap bow that doesn't even look good....she does wonderful CUSTOM bows and those bows are beautiful. She can match anything you give her and she is one of the sweetest people I know.
