Introducing Shop Talk, with Jaclyn1423

3 Aug

This blog post is the first of what I hope to make a two- or three-time weekly series on Snap, Crackle, Pop. I call her Shop Talk. The idea is to feature sellers on Etsy who haven’t quite “made it” in their eyes yet. I want to find out why they started crafting, which of their own pieces is their favorite, which fellow sellers on Etsy are their favorites and the like. To kick off, I’m starting with …

((cue drum roll))

… moi, Jaclyn1423.etsy.com.

Name: JaclynGEDC0515
Hometown: Currently Fort Wayne, Ind., though past homes include cities in northeastern Illinois, southwestern Ohio and northeastern Ohio.
Etsy shop name: Jaclyn1423.etsy.com
When did you join Etsy? My little info block on my Etsy shop tells me I joined on Sept. 10, 2008. Initially, I joined to be a buyer – my first purchases were some Scrabble tile pendants. Jessejanes had a buy 2, get 1 free sale. I bought two as Christmas gifts and one for moi.
How would you describe your shop? I think my shop is fun. I love bright colors, interesting designs and unorthodox or unexpected pairings, like taking a casual, beachy shell and hanging it from a strand of ab-coated, elegant purple stones.
What’s your most recent listing? Some really fun and simple leopard dangle earrings, which I realize match a bracelet I posted more than a month ago.

Tune in on Wednesday evening for the scoop on Button Fuzz.

Want to have your shop featured in the future? Leave me a comment, and I’ll get in touch with you.

    Thanks so much, all! I’ve gotten so many great responses. I’m keeping track of everyone — just because I don’t get a hold of you super quickly doesn’t mean I won’t. Be patient — this is going to be a fun feature!
