Name: Debbie Suess
Store Name: Lillifee Boutique
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.

Why did you start selling on Etsy? I had accumulated a few storage boxes full of crocheted items and wasn't sure what to do with them, so I decided to try to sell them on Etsy.

What is your favorite thing about Etsy? The huge variety of handmade items available for when I feel like shopping. I also love the Etsy friends I've made.
What is your most favorite item in your store? The Ladybug Crocheted Beanie, because of the contrast in color. I truly love all of my items!! The satisfaction I get from having a customer send me a pic of their babys/kids wearing my items is soooo worth it, because I truly love what I do.
