About

I've wished for a venue where I could create and sell, all over the world.

In my family the women made whatever they could, be it canning and preserving, to knitting and sewing clothes. It was a natural progression that I too would make whatever I could, as did my cousins, and now my daughter and granddaughter.

I have played around with selling on etsy, and even though I was able to do some selling, it never really took off, until March of 2012.

I decided I wanted to make accessories for men and boys, especially bow ties. I had been making ties for the men in my family for years, but the bow tie was new for me. I bought a pattern from an etsy shop. Then I discovered I needed the hardware for them. At that time there wasn't hardware to be found. I did some extensive Internet searching and finally found them, but I had to buy a gross! I bought them, finished up a dozen or so bow ties and listed them. I also listed some hardware to recoup the cost. I thought, if I couldn't find them, then perhaps there are others that need them as well.

It wasn't long before I was ordering 10 gross at a time, and now my orders are a minimum of 20 gross. In the beginning I sold more hardware than I did bow ties, then as time went by, I was selling far more bow ties, suspenders, ties and pocket squares than hardware, and the wedding orders began piling up!

I'm now a successful etsy seller, selling to all the major countries in the world. I retired last December from my job as a legal assistant, and spend several hours a day creating. I have a very busy wedding season and about the time that slows down, I start listing scarves and hats for fall and winter.

I don't know how long this ride will last, but I'm enjoying every minute!
