We started in January 2011. It began when I (JoJo) made a crochet, felted purse for Secret Santa at work. Then our mom gave us Kindles for Christmas 2010. I made cases for mine and Lolli's Kindles. Everyone said I should sell the stuff I crocheted. I happened upon Etsy, when searching for kindle cases on the Internet.

So, one night I mentioned the site to Lolli and we decided to start a shop. We had so many ideas and thought it would be something fun to do in our spare time. At the time I was a full time chemist and Lolli an attorney. We started with just a few crocheted items, then started adding jewelry and all sorts of other things.

I soon bought a sewing machine and taught myself how to sew. Those were some interesting days. This is when we introduced sewn electronic covers to our shop. We started out slow…

At the time I was a full time chemist and Lolli an attorney. We started with just a few crocheted items, then started adding jewelry and all sorts of other things.

I soon bought a sewing machine and taught myself how to sew. Those were some interesting days. This is when we introduced sewn electronic covers to our shop. We started out slow and took our time to perfect our cases. Christmas 2011, saw our shop sales increase significantly due to our kindle cases. Christmas eve I purchased my first iPad, and made our first iPad stand case for it and immediately listed it. Since that holiday season we have not slowed down. We have actually continued to grow as we add more products to our shop.

With both of us working full time then coming home and working on Etsy full time, it became overwhelming. So, in June 2012 I left my job and am devoting all of my time on The2SistersShoppe. So now I have all my time to create new fun things.

We love to create new things. A good deal of our products listed are due to custom orders. Customers ask for a case we have but like this instead of that, or with this fabric instead of that. So, if you have something in mind, don't hesitate to ask, we just may be able to do it.

Vincent, our brother, does graphic design and art for us. He is now the proud owner and artist of his own Etsy shop. Find him here for all your graphics needs.
