Fraternity Blog

Posted On: Monday, November 6, 2017 07:36 AM, by Kristi Tucker

On Halloween, I opened my email and saw my first Christmas-themed message from a retail store, and I thought, "The trick-or-treaters haven't even arrived, and the holiday shopping season has already begun!"


If you are someone who loves the holidays, loves to shop, or is already searching for gifts this season, look to Theta's 600+ licensed vendors for all the Thetas on your list. Find trendy items such as jewelry, clothing, and other accessories that any Theta is sure to love. Our list of licensed vendors is your one-stop-shop for cute and quality products for any budget.


Perhaps this is the year you decide to upgrade your badge, or purchase a badge as a gift for a sister, you can do so directly online at our official jeweler's website. Please note, our deadline for holiday orders is November 20. Badge orders must be submitted by November 20 to be received in time for the holidays.


Happy shopping!

Chapter officer pendant

Check out some of Theta's newest official jewelry! We are offering a new style of badge pendant and a new legacy dangle.


The pendant has in black enamel the words "Chapter Officer" along the sides of the kite to indicate your position as either a college or alumnae chapter officer. You can pin your badge inside the pendant to wear as a necklace. The pendant is available in small and large sizes—to accommodate small and large badges—and in gold plate, 10K, or 14K gold.


The legacy dangle, represented by connecting hearts, is a great way to symbolize your heritage within Kappa Alpha Theta. The dangle comes in gold plate, 10K, or 14K gold as well.


Please visit the official jewelry website to place your order.

If you've purchased a badge recently, you may have noticed a tiny gold piece attached to the stem (pin) on the back. Seeing it, you may have wondered "What is that tiny thing, and is it important?" You're not the only person to ask that question!


That tiny piece is called a bubble guard, and it is, indeed important: it can keep you from losing your badge. Here's how it should work.


When you put your badge on, put the pin through the fabric. Before you put the pin in the clasp and close it, slide the little bubble guard on the pin. Then clasp it shut. If for some reason the clasp opens, the bubble guard will catch your badge, helping it stay on your clothing.


Do you want to know more about Theta's badges? Visit History of Our Badge and Badge Disposition Guidelines on Theta's heritage website. Do you have a story about your own badge? Send it to archives@kappaalphatheta.org.

As I sit here writing this, I cannot believe that it is already November. The day after Halloween, I saw the first commercial for the holidays! Slowly social media posts, more holiday commercials, and even invitations to holiday parties started creeping into my life.


At this rate, I better get my shopping list in order! If your holiday shopping list includes a new Theta badge, visit the website of our official jeweler, J. Lewis Small, Inc., to place your order before November 22 (to receive your badge in time).


Also, check out our newly redesigned Greek licensed vendor website, where you can view everything our 600+ licensed vendors offer.

The new FindGreek app
I love autumn. Football, back-to-school, sweaters, pumpkins...and when I was in college, it also meant recruitment season for my chapter. Even before college, I loved back-to-school shopping.

If you're like me, you'll want to include Theta in your shopping, too. And, if you are finding yourself looking for fall recruitment items, bid day gifts, or initiation gifts, look no further than the Theta Marketplace page on this website. Here you'll find links to our official jeweler, J. Lewis Small, Inc., as well as links to all of our licensed vendors.

In addition, download the new FindGreek app, free in both the App Store and on Google Play. This is the largest and most diverse collection of licensed merchandise for all Greek groups - right at your fingertips.

Happy shopping!

Driving to work, I heard a countdown to the holidays on the radio. Seeing as that it's not even Halloween yet, I couldn't believe it! It made me think of another important holiday countdown—the deadline for official jewelry orders!


If someone on your shopping list is longing for a new Theta badge, guard, or dangles, visit the J. Lewis Small website by November 23 in order to receive your merchandise in time for the holidays. Most items are not kept in stock, as they are hand-crafted upon ordering.


If you have any jewelry questions, please contact me directly. Happy shopping!
