I started making items in my tiny apartment and my friends kept telling me to try selling them. As a substitute teacher, I sold several things without really even marketing them and quite by accident, giving me the added push to try Etsy and broaden my market!
I still work in a tiny apartment, barely crammed into my space, but I truly love what I am doing and that makes it all worth it!

My shop name: Meinung was the town I grew up in in Taiwan and Gabrielle is my middle name, I combined the two so that my shop name would still be something personal.
Autumn Mak
owner, designer, maker, curator, I design and make everything that is in my shop!
I enjoy creativity and crafting new things. I am hoping to turn my hobby into a full-time business and thankfully my husband is extremely supportive. This is my first attempt to sell my items online instead of just in person.
