Etsy Interview & Giveaway with Old New Again

Monday, March 15, 2010

(Psst... just a few more hours to enter the Spring Garland giveaway from Middleburg!)


I was SO excited when I saw that Old New Again was interested IN being featured here on Etsy Interviews. Discovering new shops (and sharing them with you!) is one of the reasons I love doing this blog. And I truly love the combination of playful color and country primitive of the creations at Old New Again. So let's meet the artists behind it all...

Old New Again

other Etsy Shop
blog



Tell us a bit about yourselves, Rick & Liz.
We are a husband and wife team. We love to make cool, functional home decor items.

We love working with wood! We like to come up with unique ideas to make your life easier and more organized. Many times we come up with new designs that we ourselves need to make our home run more smoothly.


What 5 words would you use to describe yourself?
creative
driven

hard-working

honest

sensitive


Tell us a bit about your Etsy shop.
I (Liz) has been selling her artwork on etsy since August of 2007. After my husband, Rick, lost his job of 11 years, we decided to go for it and open up another shop where we can both create things together. I learned a lot from running my first shop on etsy, so it was much easier to set up and start our new one. Our goal is to completely support our family (we have two daughters, Molly 16 and Samantha 7) with our handmade goods. We're getting there!

What 5 words would you use to describe your shop?
fresh
unique
functional
upcycled
colorful


What are your 5 favorite websites?
TOLLIPOP.COM (pure, brilliant writing)
The Meanest Mom (funny!)
The Bloggess (crazy!)
Nienie Dialogues (inspiring)
mystele (great art, great pics and videos)


What are your 5 favorite Etsy shops?
Sushipot
Olive
Noodle & Lou
Sarah Wyman
Michele Maule


What advice would you give other Etsy sellers?
~ Develop great products that reflect who you are.
~ Work and work and work on your pictures (clear, bright, different angles, with plain backgrounds!)
~ Be careful with time on the computer.
~ Try to come up with a routine and stick to it.
~ Be serious about great customer service.

~ Be cheerful to fellow sellers - encourage!!!


Anything else you'd like us to know?
We're friendly and easy to work with. :)

Patti said...

I follow Primoriginals on Facebook and on Etsy. My favorite thing in your store is the sign that says 'EAT' because it is very very cool and very retro. In fact it's retro enough that I'm old enough to remember the first time around. I LOVE IT!
