Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

-Our shop is a colaboration of 3 creative minds- 1 mom and 2 daughters who love to create. Oldest daughter makes all the jewelry and youngest makes and helps with baby clothing.  Our shop is filled from jewelry to baby clothes and handbags.  We love using all elements and combining them as much as possible thus making us Eclectic. We love using from Vintage to new supplies in creating a finished product.  A percentage of sales goes to Meningioma Mommas, a Not for Profit Foundation that provides support and helpful information that helped me through surgery when I was diagnosed with a tumor. Another percentage goes to other Foundations, at least 1 to 2 a month.  We love giving it is our passion to use our shop to help others.

I love that you all three work together, what a fun family business! And how great of you to give back like you do.
Name three words to describe yourself.

-Creative- Artistic- Caring

Name three words to describe your Etsy shop.

-Creative- Eclectic – Artistic

How long have you been creating? How long have you been selling on Etsy, and what made you take the plunge to sell to others?

-Mom has been creating and sewing since she was 10 yrs old, her daughters learned from her as we made Christmas Crafts and always had crafting projects going on in our home. Our shop open when people who were buying some of our accessories encouraged us to try out Etsy. We have been on Etsy for 1 year now.

Tell me a little bit about your creative process?

- Creative process is by taking one or two items and inivisioning a finished product sometimes going thru just about everything before were happy with what we invision the outcome to be.

What are your two favorite items from your shop, and why?

Vintage Meets Mod Cosmetic Bag
 Hammered Funkys Hanging from a Chain Earrings

I can vouch for Sol's stuff, it is fabulous! I own a lot of it, and all of it has really impressed me. Also, Linda is an absolute doll to work with.

What are some of your favorite Etsy shops?

-Art shops- other Jewelry shops and pretty much anything unique- we also love finding unique and different supplies from Vintage to new.
Lastly, what is some advice that you would offer to those interested in starting their own Etsy shop?

-The best advise for new Etsy sellers is to browse through other shops to get ideas on how to create their own- and feel free to ask others questions – you will find people love to help. Most important thing that we have found is take the best pictures you can as photos are very appealing to buyers.

Now it is my favorite part, I am going to share a few of my favorite things from Linda's shop! :)

This Butterfly Set is SO cute! I love Butterflies!

This Pirate Set is absolutely the best. We have it for Anastasia, and it looks SO stinkin' cute on!
