Welcome to EtsyInterviews with B.Inspired Vintage & B.Inspired Supply

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Welcome to EtsyInterviews! I'm so excited to bring you interviews with the MANY talented and friendly Etsy sellers that I have met while running my own Etsy shops, B.Inspired Vintage and B.Inspired Supply. I have some really GREAT interviews lined up with tons of GIVEAWAYS, too! If you want to be featured, it's SO easy; just fill out this form and I will let you know if and when you are selected. Anyway, I'll just jump right in and get started by "interviewing" (and introducing) myself first...





Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi, I'm Krissy! I am a former art teacher turned full-time mama to two beautiful (and energetic) little ones under 3! I gave up a high school art teaching position to be a stay at home mom when we had to relocate from northern to southern Pennsylvania for my husband's work a few years back. It was the first time I'd left "home" and everyone thought I was CRAZY for leaving my teaching position, but it has proven to be a fun and worthwhile adventure. Etsy and the blogging community have made that transition even more fun!


Give 5 words to describe yourself.
Caring
Compassionate

Creative

Responsible

CRAZY!



Tell us a bit about your shop(s).
I love staying home with my kiddos, but I do find it hard to fit in much creative mama time. So I've been blessed to discover thrifting, which my little ones can do with me, as my new passion! I am completely addicted to the thrill of the hunt and always amazed at how a little cleanup and clever photography can transform something tossed aside into a treasure. I especially love anything colorful and fun. I share my fun & funky vintage finds in B.Inspired Vintage and B.Inspired Supply. My etsy shops and my blogs, B.Inspired Mama & now EtsyInterviews, give me the creative boost I need between all of the diaper-changes, children's books, playdates, and snuggle time!


Give 5 words to describe your shop(s).
Colorful
Funky
Fun

Clean

Affordable



Give your 5 favorite websites.
Etsy of course, but that doesn't count!
Heartomatic

Etsy Treasure Hunt

Etsy Fee Calculator

One Pretty Thing

Swap-Bot



Give your 5 favorite Etsy shops (aside from your own).
So hard to narrow it down...
Shop66
Missy Magoo
Tortoise Loves Donkey
Reclaim2Fame
Lemon Blooms


What advice would you give other Etsy sellers?
I'm still learning as I go, but my advice would be to have great customer service, fast shipping, and don't be afraid to ask questions and learn from others. I visit other Etsy sellers that I admire and that are successful and soak up as much from them as possible. Oh, and spread the love via hearts! I'm a HUGE heart-er. I truly love something about each item or seller that I heart. I believe lots of people find me through the heart-trail that I leave behind.


Anything else you would like to share?
I'm excited to have just listed new vintage-inspired handmade creations in B.Inspired Vintage! And can't wait to make time to create some more.

First of all, I think you offer spectacular prices. Your products are really unique and I like many of them. However, my favorite is the topsy turvy red riding hood doll. I had one like this as a child and I cannot find it now. I would love to share this with my daughter.
