I am so excited about this new feature and am happy that it is such a worthy shop.
Sandi Myers, creative talent behind Handmade By Sandi, opened her shop on etsy in June 19, 2009. She is fully stocked with beautifully crocheted items and hand-painted totes. This is what she had to say about her shop:
Why did you decide to open your handmade shop?
I have a website, where most of the things I sell are either purchased from another company or are the same thing made over and over. I wanted somewhere - where I could sell things as one of a kind, crocheted items that I don't sell on my website, or just things I love to make.
Has your inventory changed much since you first opened?
I've sold a number of things, and as the mood strikes, I try to find other patterns to use to create new looks for the shop.
Who are the majority of your customers? How did they find you?
A lot of my team members - for the Sneak Team have bought from me. The other customers are those buyers who found what I sell to be something they want.
What inspires you to create?
My favorite item is my crocheted lacy shawl. It was a difficult pattern for me, and I was delighted that it came out so well. I think my hats are the most popular, since I sell more of those.
What has been your greatest resource to make your shop successful?
Tweeting. I'd really like to do more with Facebook - but I never seem to have enough time.
Any changes coming to your shop in the future?
