Why did you start selling on Etsy? Honestly, I am not sure. I had been selling on Ebay for a couple of years and was looking for other venues. I heard about Etsy through some groups and decided to give it a shot. I loved the ease of the listing process and two of my items sold on my very first day. Of course, I was sold. I found Etsy to be a wonderful place to be.
How long have you had your store on Etsy? I have had my store on Etsy since January 2007. A little over 2 years.
What is your favorite thing about Etsy? One of my favorite things about Etsy is the kindness of others. The community of Etsy including both the buyers and the sellers is very friendly.
What is your favorite item in your store? Wow, that's tough. This dress http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10942105 is the dress I started my business with several years ago. It is still one of my biggest sellers. The colors are just so pretty together.

What is your favorite thing about Etsy? My favorite thing about Etsy is how personal shopping becomes. I love the fact that when I buy something I know that I'm making a difference in a real person's life. I love knowing that what I receive is the product of a real artisan's (not trend setting business people's)creativity and hard work. And of course I love that what I get isn't the same thing that everyone else will have.
What is your most favorite item in your store? I really like the Special Edition Peek-a-boo Dress - Sweet Lemon Pie . http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12533327

When I first started making my bracelets and earrings I was selling them on ebay. But, there are things about ebay that I didn't like; the fees, the short-lived listings, and items selling for less then they're worth. When I was introduced to Etsy I thought it was the best thing ever. I started my shop in July of 2007, so I guess it's been about a year and a half since I started selling. I love buying and selling on Etsy. Everything is so unique and made with so much care. I don't know what my favorite thing about Etsy is, because there's so much I like about it. And still more that I haven't yet explored. The treasury is definitely one of my favorite things. I love finding shops and items by looking through the treasuries. My favorite item in my store right now is my Funky Valentine bracelet. I love using the big beads and black & red color schemes.

Great as a fashion statement or extra coverage for warmth under pants, skirts or during diaper changes. Also useful as protection for little legs from rough surfaces and the sun!
*Make diaper changes easier
*Protect little knees when crawling
*Keep legs warm year round
*Look super cute as arm warmers!
*Can be worn with just a onesie, as an alternative to tights or even under pajamas for extra warmth!
*Great for girls wearing dresses to school in the winter.
*Easy on, easy off.
*Easy way to make an item last many years.
This is a smaller pair that would fit about newborn to 18 months. These measure about 9 1/2 inches.
