Featured Etsy Shop: Simply Sophia

Featured Etsy Shop: Simply Sophia

1. What is your shop name and what do you sell?
My shop is named Simply Sophia and it specialized in handmade hair clips, tutu's and accessories for the baby in your life.

2. What is your shop URL?

3. What is your blog URL?

4. When did you start selling on Etsy?
I started in December 2006 with my friend. We had a mishmash of great items, but I decided to open my own shop with just baby items in July 2007.

5. What is your favorite thing about Etsy?
I love searching for items for sale. I just love all of the wonderful items that are out there. I love buying things from my daughter.

6. What is your favorite thing about what you sell?
I love knowing that parents can enjoy my products. There is nothing better than buying something for your child and seeing the expression on their face when they see it. I try to think of that when I create my items.

7. What is your favorite item in your own shop and why?
Right now, it's my newest item. It's completely different from anything I've ever done before but I think that it came out fantastic! Its a Forest Fun Car Mat / Felt Board.

The car mat features a forest scene, complete with a lake, cozy cabin, a parking lot, and trees. When they get tired of car play, take out your felt pieces and flip the mat over for lots of open ended learning activities.

8. What teams do you belong to?
None right now.

9. What is the most fun thing you do to promote your shop?
I love having people show me their shops on the forums. I enjoy looking at everything. If someone stops by my shop, great! If not, I still enjoyed taking a peek in a shop that I may never have known about.

10. What are some of your favorite finds by other sellers on Etsy?
I had bought a pair of Baby Leggings by MonkeyLegs and I love them! I bought them in February for my then 9 month old and they still fit her at 17 months. She loves wearing them too.

I also adore the Dichroic Pendants by Luv2Have. They are just gorgeous! I drool over them.

11. What do you do in your spare time?
I either craft or I spend time with my daughter. I'm introducing her to the fascinating world of crafting. Right now we're just coloring, finger painting and making making play dough but she's learning a lot.

12. What blogs do you follow?
It's not an Etsy blog, but it's a blog about art activities for young children. It's very detailed and easy to follow. I highly recommend it!

13. Do you have anything else you would like to share?
I would like to share my website:
