Daughter of Lander graduates helps create a fashion accessory for girls

Seven-year-old Gabrielle Goodwin and her mother, Rozalynn, of Columbia, have created an accessory that solves the problem of securing the ends of girls’ pigtails, braids and twists, and it can be purchased at Walgreens stores in South Carolina and Georgia, including Walgreens locations in Greenwood.

The Double Face, Double Snap Barrette by GaBBY is the first of its kind, and two events are planned in Greenwood to celebrate. Rozalynn Goodwin, a native of Mt. Carmel, and her husband, Michael, are both Lander University graduates. They have a second child, Michael, 4.

Asked by her mother to come up with ways to give back to the community, Gabrielle decided she wanted to “play with the girls others won’t play with,” any girls who might have been bullied. Families are invited to a Play Date with GaBBY on Saturday, Sept. 13, from 2 to 4 pm at Jumping Jax, 559 Beaudrot Rd., Greenwood. Admission is free and families are encouraged to bring food items for donation to Connie Maxwell Children's Home. Rozalynn Goodwinn said there will be bullying-prevention games, barrette giveaways, and opportunities to form friendships.

On Friday, Sept. 12, from 4 to 6 p.m., the South Main Street Walgreens in Greenwood will host a special meet and greet with GaBBY for families interested in learning more about the new barrette.

Rozalynn said, “While our culture is pressing our daughters to grow up, GaBBY is about the fun and innocence of being a girl, and creating a sense of nostalgia for a simpler time.”
