Her business “Da Bombs by Morgan Tibbens” has exploded with orders from 40 stores including local boutiques and beyond.
Da Bombs are sold in seven states as far as North Dakota.
Da Bombs are made with all natural ingredients and each has a unique charm inside.
Since Morgan started making bombs in November, a little more than six months ago, she’s made $15,000. Morgan is a huge country music fan, so she initially started the business to make money for concert tickets. Now she has bigger plans. To go to college.
Morgan is working on some new products. Shower discs, sugar scrubs, and bath salts. And she makes custom bombs for Mississippi State and Ole Miss fans. Morgan says making her own money is da bomb.
“It makes me responsible.”
