Featured Seller: KrazyFashion

(1) Who are you?
My name is Brittany and I am 19 years old. I am easy to talk to, a good listener, and striving to do better everyday. I love to design and create.

(2) What is your shop name and how did you come up with it?
Well my shop name is KrazyFashion. I had come up with a TON of different names for my business but some how this one just stuck. :)

(3) What do you create and sell?
At the moment I create accessories such as bags, wallets, jewelry, etc.
I really want to have every sort of accessory in my shop.

(4) What is your source for inspiration?
I get inspired by shapes and colors. I LOVE color! It is funny that I love color so much these days because I went through a phase of "black" when I was younger lol. I think we all do at some point haha.

(5) What is your favorite piece from your shop & why?
I don't have a favorite piece. I have a favorite design. At the moment that design is my wallets. I got inspiration from other wallets and fabrics. I put the two together and it just worked in my opinion. :)

(6) Is running your shop your only job?
Yes at the moment it is my only job and I love every second of it. Don't get me wrong I would love to do other things but right now this is what I like to do.

(7) When did you start your business?
I started my business at the beginning of 2008 "officially" but I found Etsy like 9 months later.

(8) How long have you been selling on Etsy?
Since September of 2008.

(9) Do you sell outside of Etsy?
At the moment no but I do hope to be doing so very soon. A little research and people skills never hurt. :p

(10) What do you like best about Etsy?
I like that it is a place where you can be productive and still have a great time all in one. You learn something new everyday and Etsy is a great way to learn new things whether it be about marketing or what happened in the news yesterday lol

(11) Do you belong to any teams?
I wouldn't say "belong" lol but I do associate myself with two teams.
1) EtsyFeast! I have been neglecting them a lot lately but only because I found another team! Hahaha I sound like I am cheating.
2) EtsyFriends Team. This team is indescribably. These women are the most strong, fun, nice, supportive, honest, caring, etc people in the world. When you need to vent you vent your little heart out and you receive so much support I love it! I usually tend to forget that there are still good people on this earth but whenever I talk to this group I am reminded they still exist.

(12) Do you have more than one Etsy shop?
No. I thought about opening a new shop but it is still a thought that floats around my big head. At the moment though I think I am just gonna stick with the one I have. :)

(13) What do you do to promote your shop(s)?
I don't do TONS but I have Flickr, Twitter, Etsy Teams, I learn something new everyday but that doesn't mean it is helpful lol
I like to try new things but most of them are unsuccessful lol

(14) What do you do in your spare time?
Well I love to spend time with my boyfriend. We do EVERYTHING together lol.
Video Games, Mall, Movies, Dinner, Beach, Vacation, drive off into the Florida sunset when we get annoyed with the local Floridians lol. I love to try new things. Just as long as the don't involve deep open water hahahaha.
I also love to sew just for me or do things just for me to keep myself sane hahaha

(15) What is your blog or website url?
-Blog (I don't blog much just read others)
Website: www.krazyfashion.etsy.com

(16) Are there any blogs you follow regularly?
-I follow this blog. :)
Not really anyone specific but I do read blogs from time to time.

(17) Are there any particular Etsy shops you follow regularly?
-Well there are a few. I am not at stalker status or anything lol
I do like to see if others have improved though. (especially my competition) ;p

(18) Any advice (business, or otherwise) for fellow sellers?
-Follow your heart. If you design something and think "oh someone will hate this" WHO CARES! Show it off anyways. Do what you love and fuck the rest! (EXCUSE MY POTTY MOUTH)
