I love Etsy. I am always so impressed by people's talents. I love that Etsy celebrates the extraordinary and allows small businesses to grow. I LOVE watching people go after their dreams. Maybe it's the teacher in me.
I wanted to feature some of my favorite shops during the winter months as a way to introduce you to some of the amazing talents that are out there.
I fell in love with Devon Alana and her shop, She Sells By the Sea. She was kind enough to answer some of my questions so I could learn more about her and her shop.
INTERVIEW WITH DEVON ALANA.
1. How did you come about opening your Etsy store?
I opened my Etsy shop because I would make things for my self, & people would always ask where they could buy them!
2. What is the meaning behind the name of your shop?
My Etsy shop name is "She Sells By The Sea". I live in Naples Florida and everything is hand crafted by the sea!
3. What are the best and worst parts of having an Etsy store?
The best part is that I get to make all of my hand crafted favorites available to everyone! World wide. The worst part is time management & making sure order go out on time.
I would say, only share what you love to make in your Etsy shop! Also, use Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook, & Instagram to get your products out there.
Definitely head on over to check out her shop to see some of her cute items, including this Hello Gorgeous mug! Isn't it perfect? Thanks so much for reading!
