1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name? The name of my shop is Sugar Mountain Mercantile,
which I named for the mountain in the Smoky
Mountains of Tennessee on which I am blessed
to have a beautiful log home getaway. I called it
a "Mercantile" because I just knew I'd be offering
up a wide variety of items, kind of like a general store. 2. How long have you been on Etsy? Just over a year. 3. What type of items do you offer? Well, it depends on how the mood strikes me!
Nearly everything is holiday- themed, as I
adore each and every holiday. I do machine and
hand-embroidery, crochet, make primitive soaps,
and I may list a few vintage items here and there.
I haven’t yet filled my shop with what I really
intend to sell. I also have plans to open a second
shop in the near future, selling strictly baby items. 4. How long have you been crafting? Gosh, ever since high school…I started out as
a ceramics instructor in an after-school program
for grade-schoolers..made me decide really quickly
I did NOT want to be a teacher when I “grew up”! 5.Who or What inspires you? Honestly, I am inspired and rejuvenated each and
every time we go down to the cabin. It’s so peaceful
and beautiful there, it would be hard not to be inspired.
Every season has something to offer..the beautiful Fall
colors, the snow-covered mountains in Winter, seeing the
Spring flowers begin to bloom..and the beauty in Summer
is just amazing! 6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why? I always like listing glass-blocks, because each one
has a personality of its own, depending on the graphics
I use, and how I choose to decorate it.
Plus they seem to sell well! 7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog) I don’t yet have a blog, but can be found on the following: http://twitter.com.SugarMtnMercant
