Independent Designer Friday - Butercups And Buterflies


The Independent Designer of the Week is Buttercups And Butterfiles- a fun and whimsical Etsy shop specializing in everything from stone pendant necklaces to crocheted baby booties.


!Here is my favorite piece from Buttercups And Butterfiles - Blue Couch Tissue Box Cover. What a fun way to liven up any room in your house. This is truly a conversation piece :>
I asked Buttercups And Butterflies a few questions about the craft business!
How would you describe your crafts/Etsy shop?
I have a little bit of everything, Its simple and the items are so useful and unique. Our crafts are made by my daughter and I and we love working together to make people happy with our products.
How did you get started?
I was told by a friend through myspace about etsy. So I checked it out. I sold items at local fleamarkets and shows. But never thought of the idea of selling online till now. I love it, its great.
How long have you been crafting?
Since I was 8 Years old, I was young when I started. I'm 28 now and still going strong with it all. I dont think I'll ever stop crafting. Its so rewarding.
What is your inspiration?
My mother was the most inspiring person in my life. Now she still is even though she has passed on. Now my daughter gives me all the inspriation I need.
What is your favorite piece in your shop today?
My Favorite piece would be the little blue sofa tissue box cover. Its a bright blue and its so adorable.
How do you market/advertise your wares?
Business cards, word of mouth, friends and family.
Any advice to fledgling crafters / entrepreneurs?
Keep your chin up and stay positive, if a sale doesn't come today it will come the next day. Staying positive about things is what makes great products and if you have great products, you have happy customers. : )
I COMPLETELY agree with your last bit of advice. We all have good days and bad days. As long as we are true to ourselves, love what we do and put our heart in our work - we can make our businesses thrive!
Thanks so much for your advice and keep up with your adorable crafting!!
