Featured Etsy Shop: Winsome Hollow



1. What is your shop name and what do you sell?

3. What is your blog URL?

4. When did you start selling on Etsy?

just this last spring, and not in the winsome hollow shop until june.

5. What is your favorite thing about Etsy?

that it is a wonderful outlet, letting artists from around the world share and affordably sell their hand made work, completely at their own pace. i love selling locally as well, but sending your creations around the world is truly special.

6. What is your favorite thing about what you sell?

well, that each piece of my work is created uniquely and by using all natural materials of heirloom quality, allowing them to be enjoyed and passed down through the years, igniting many imaginations along the way!

7. What is your favorite item in your own shop and why?

probably my new hand sewn wool and cotton tree line as a whole...i can't pick one tree in particular! http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5798060&section_id=5631812
the image of the tree has always been very influential on both my art and the little magical world i've created in winsome hollow. to now create trees in a more literal form is both so much fun and full of endless possibilities!

8. What teams do you belong to?

naturalkids team

9. What is the most fun thing you do to promote your shop?

well, it is actually through promoting others...i love finding beautiful creations by other sellers on etsy and making collections in treasuries. people often find my shop through my treasuries and treasury promotions...and i've been fortunate enough to have some of my treasuries featured on the front page of etsy!
