About MariesEssentialsShop

Sales 202
On Etsy since 2020

Hi, I'm Marie,

Welcome to my page! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share with you a little bit about myself and my journey to joining the Etsy family.

I enthusiastically opened my shop in early 2020 but closed it for several months to help manage through a difficult period of readjusting to virtual home schooling and trying to provide the family with the support they needed during this rough period in New York. But hey, I used that time to try and rework some of the ideas for my shop and to offer my customers something prettier in the labelling along with a larger selection that I'm still working on. I hope I did good.

Now to tell you a little bit about myself and why I'm here. After years of living the fast-paced corporate lifestyle, I wanted and needed to delve into my creative side. It's truly where I find my JOY! I loved the idea of it being simple, as natural and as safe as possible, and uniquely me. I started out making decorative soaps by hand using essential oils and safe fragrances to capture the feeling of home. Soon friends and family were not only complimenting my creations, but began requesting some for themselves. Some members of the family with skin problems were saying these homemade items were making a difference. Taken by surprise at the feedback from them, I was inspired to go a step further and do something I love for the people I love.

It was when they wanted to share my products as gifts themselves, that I realized I had something to share, and not just with close friends and family. This is how Marie's Essentials was born. I chose that name because I loved the ME initials and the yourMEtime concept, knowing you really can't take care of others without taking some time out to take care of yourself.

Getting here has been a wonderful and creative journey with years of research. However, I could not have done this without the crafting community who so generously shared the information I needed to create these products. I could never thank them enough.

The way I envision selling my products is “If it speaks to you it's yours". Maybe not the best marketing strategy, but it's how I make a purchase myself.

I'm happy to be a part of the Etsy family and will let your comments and reviews be my guide going forward, so please keep me informed and help me help you.
