Meet Nicole

Fulfilling her passion to create, Nicole started her company Oscar & Olivia selling handmade hair accessories for girls of all ages.  Initially selling at local craft fairs, Nicole had a great deal of success and followers driving her to expand to Etsy, an online Marketplace.  Her products can now be found in over six brick and mortar stores in the twin cities area.

Immediate success on Etsy allowed Nicole to explore her creative side even more expanding Oscar & Olivia to encompass jewelry.  With an innate entrepreneurial sense, Nicole knew one day she would like to own her own store.
