Tonight (April 14th) at 8pm join Erin and Susie who will be talking about our recent trip to the Etsy Captain Summit in Toronto, and our plans for the upcoming year. We will also discuss our jurying process for our markets.There will be a short Q&A session at the end. Feel free to leave your questions below.
p.s. since we don't have a team YouTube channel yet we will be using Erin's ( the team captain) YouTube account so don't be surprised when it doesn't come up as EtsySK.
Introduce Yourself: Hi! I am a stay at home mom, or as I like to put it, a Domestic Engineer, and I live Lashburn, Sask, a small town near Lloydminster. I have a teenage daughter and an 11 year old son who has Autism Spectrum Disorder.
How did you get started ? I started making candles when my son was small because I wanted to help supplement my husband's income and I wanted to be able to stay at home at the same time. I started making soap about 3 years ago because I was always fascinated by the whole process of it and how all all the ingredients benefit our lives. I also love knowing how much people love what I make and knowing that I made it myself, with my own two hands.
Where can people find you online?
What do you like about selling on Etsy? I really love that I don't have to do all the maintenance and work like I do with having my own website, and also that Etsy has a good traffic base already established, so it is easier for my product to be seen through Etsy.
What brought you to Etsy? The fact that it is mostly all handmade products. And that it is so easy to work with
Is there anything else you would like to share with us about your shop or yourself? I love creating! I am always willing to try new things, and to make something by request. If there is something that people want and I don't have it in my shop, please let me know and I will do my best to make it for them!
