Introduce Yourself: Hi! I'm Gail Cutts- soap artisan who loves all things natural!
What is the name of your shop and how long have you been open? My shop- Soap Cutts Handmade Soap has been open for just over a year
Where can people find you and your products? I sell my product at the Saskatoon Farmers Market so customers are directed from my Facebook page directly to my Etsy site. I also sell from my Instagram account too.
What's been your best Etsy experience? I don't have one significant Etsy experience but know each interaction is an opportunity to connect with the larger community who support locally handmade products. I'm a people person so love sharing my interest in natural soap products.
Introduce Yourself: My name is Lindsay Buhay. I am originially from Prince Albert but have been in Saskatoon since 2008. I always thought I wasn't crafty at all. I can't sew, draw, paint or do pottery. But greatly admired people who could. As I got older I began to try new things and discovered I am crafty after all. I am constantly trying new things. Some I fail at and some work out. Sometimes the opposite of what I thought going into the project. I have discovered a new love for making things and I look forward to never running out of the things to try and possibly fail at.
What's Your Shop's Name? My stores name is Spa Stuff. Simple and describes exactly what I want to portray. To me a Spa is anything we can do to pamper ourselves and take some much needed me time.
What do you make/sell? How do you make it? I make yummy smelling things for your bath. Bath salts, Milk Baths, Bath Teas all scented with herbs and oils. I have recently started to experiment with Sugar Scrubs, Body Butters and lotion bars. I am continually trying new things and hope to have a wider variety in my store soon.
How did you get started? I got started making sugar scrubs and some bath salts for myself and gift for Christmas. They starting to become more popular and so it just snowballed until now I find myself trying to turn it into a business instead of a hobby.

What do you like about selling on Etsy? Even though I haven't gotten any sales yet I like the sense of team. It has allowed me to reconnect with a friend from the past and I have learned so much by reading the boards. Everyone wants everyone to succeed and its a great environment to learn in.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us about your shop or yourself? Just that I value feedback. Please check out my shop and feel free to offer suggestions to improve. I love learning from other people and their shops.
Thanks for giving me this opportunity!
