Tell us about yourself
I have a part time job and love to do crafts in my spare time. There’s nothing more exciting than finding out that you made a sale!
When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?
I have been selling on Etsy for many years and haven’t ever heard of another site that does as well as Etsy does.
Tell us a bit about your products
My products are tatted which is almost a lost art. I also started selling felt Christmas trees which is a big hit!
What inspires your work?
My grandma taught me how to tat and she was so happy that someone else learned.
What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?
My goal is usually to beat last years sales.
What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?
There aren’t a lot of businesses that sell tatting
Why do you believe people should buy handmade, such as your products, vs buying mass-produced products from box stores?
When you buy handmade items you know that someone cares enough to make sure that the items is worth selling.
When you’re not working, what do you like to do to unwind and have fun? Do you have any hobbies?
I actually sit and tat while I’m watching TV.
