Shop Talk: ButtonFuzz

I’ve gotten such a great response from everyone about Shop Talk! I sent out my questions to dozens of people and have about 10 lined up. If you have an Etsy shop and are interested in being featured, leave a message on this post.

And now meet … ButtonFuzz!

Adorable bride and groom salt and pepper shakers

How would you describe your shop? I am attracted to objects with bright colors and flair. I try to incorporate patterns and colors I love into various types of art, including paintings, paper crafts and wedding accessories. I adore things that are whimsical or odd.
What’s your favorite item in your shop currently? My bride and groom salt and pepper shakers. I made a batch of them for my own wedding and thought they made such a cute addition to our reception tables.
What would you consider “success” with your shop? Making the money back I have invested in Etsy. But I do fantasize about being able to sell enough through Etsy and through freelance writing that I can join the ranks of those in the Quit Your Day Job features.
Have you ever made a purchase from Etsy? If so, what was your favorite item purchased? I actually just made my first purchase on Etsy today of these two items for a friend’s birthday. The seller was so wonderful! I also have my eye on a rad black dress with a giant goldfish on it, and I plan on giving these dictionary pendants to all the ladies on my Christmas list this year.
Do you have a favorite seller on Etsy? If so, who is it, and why is that shop your favorite? Oh my gosh! How do I choose?! TR Mack Studio, Horrror Decor, GamiWorks, Zombie Kitten Originals, Audrey and Grace, Lucha Workshop … etc., etc., etc. … I swoon when I see the items in these shops. It’s a simple as that.

    I came here through a tweet from Zombie Kitten Originals, and have to thank you so much for introducing me to MORE etsy shops that I need to “add to favorites.” There is so much creativity and talent to be found on etsy!

    (And yes, I have a shop there as well. http://tiddleywink.etsy.com)

I'd love to hear what you think!
