Buyer Beware: Unveiling the True Value of Your Custom Homecoming Mum

Updated: Dec 31, 2023

Have you ever wondered about the authenticity behind those "mums for sale" ads? In 2017, I had a surprising encounter that shed light on the potential pitfalls of such transactions. Discovering that someone had used my photos to sell homecoming mums online was both amusing and eye-opening. While I managed to have my photo removed, the incident sparked thoughts about the potential disappointment awaiting customers who purchased from this seller using borrowed Pinterest images.

In a similar vein, a friend in the mum-making community faced an identical situation. Curious about the outcome, one of her friends decided to take the plunge and purchase a mum from the photo thief. The result was disheartening – the purchased mum bore little resemblance to the captivating photo used for marketing.

Here's the crucial distinction:

Central Texas Spirit Wear is not your average fly-by-night mum maker operating out of a plastic tub. You won't find my mums advertised as the cheapest in the area, and there's a reason for that. My commitment to the children who wear my mums transcends cost-cutting. Each mum is crafted with meticulous attention and care. I dedicate time throughout the year to refine my craft, enrolling in small business and industry-specific courses that elevate me as both a mum designer and shop owner. Scouring for top-quality materials and unique elements is a year-round pursuit, as making mums is not just a seasonal hobby but an ongoing passion.

When you order a custom mum from Central Texas Spirit Wear, what you see is precisely what you'll get. Rest assured, the exceptional quality will leave you enamored, and you'll take pride in gifting the mum or garter to your cherished young one.

Choose confidence, choose authenticity, choose Central Texas Spirit Wear for a homecoming mum that exceeds your expectations.
