About HardbackYoYo

Sales 335
On Etsy since 2016

HardbackYoYo is an online store owned by an entrepreneur with Autism that sells products repurposed from discarded books and other media.

When I was 18 years old, with graduation just around the corner, I was in need of a job!

So my family and friends (old and new) gathered to form a team of support. Together they helped me to launch a customized business that would create a product of interest not only to myself, but hopefully to you as well. My passion for books and keeping the earth a great place for all of us to live has inspired me to create an eco-friendly business; springing old books into a new purpose. I make writing journals and other items from discarded media. We call it a microenterprise because I am the entrepreneur of this small business.

I have a form of Autism called Asperger’s Syndrome, and a customized job is always the best way for me to accentuate my strengths.

I am now a Featured Business on JJ's List!
