About

How I got here...or the story of Shinny Squirrel.

I am so thrilled that everyone who wears a creation from my shop knows that they are getting high quality original items worthy of their unique personality.
Before Shinny Squirrel came along the selection of harem pants was BORING! Every one had the SAME old skirt and the SAME old choli. How uninspired.
Then one day I decided to add some life to the party! I was disappointed by what I could find so, I went to the fabric store, sat down at my sewing table and with some trial and error I made my own pants! They were black cotton with flames on them. My troupe mates went nuts so I made more pants in different types of fabrics. Fellow dancers in other cities went nuts and I started selling at shows. Everyone told me to start an online site!
I was concerned that now one would buy from me. I was a one women business that no one had heard of. How on earth was I to get my name out there and sell these pants? What if no one else liked them?
It was the love and encouragement from my troupe mates that gave me the courage to give it a try. They reminded me that all of the dancers in the world needed to have the freedom to express who they are inside. I was the one women who could do just that! So I did.
I decided to create the most distinctive costumes that anyone would love! After the harem pants took off I started making choli, hand dyed skirts, bindi, utility belts...everything! I expanded to bring in all sorts of unique things. Everything that you could want!!!
It was a hard road to travel down. I had to find suppliers that would sell in smaller quantities, I had to find space to store everything, I had to figure out how to market myself in this ever changing digital world. Add to it that I'm an Army wife who moves every 2-3 years and I had to find places to work, to store everything, to stay open when my stuff was being shipped (don't get me started on moving from Hawaii and the 60 days of insanity that ensued).

I digress. Suffice it to say, it's insane.

It took awhile. I started as a little business selling 2 styles of harem pants on Etsy into a powerhouse seller! Its daunting, but you are totally worth it!
What totally got me through the tough times was you. Hearing the joyous squeals coming through email. Seeing pictures of your beautiful smiling faces as you twirl around the dance floor. You my fans are what keep me going. I thank you.
