Etsy Seller Interview Series- HarmlessVillain

Updated on May 22, 2015

Check out HarmlessVillain's shop here:


1. When did you open your shop?

"I opened my shop before, but never added anything because I wasn't so sure about my products. I officially started adding items and promoting in December!"

2. What do you make?

"I make mostly stencils and screen print them onto crewneck sweatshirts right now. I also design a lot of images online using Photoshop and my drawing tablet and then make them into pins!"


3. What is your favorite item in your shop?

"My favorite item in my shop is one of my Frida kahlo stencil crew neck sweatshirts."

4. What is your biggest challenge?

"My biggest challenge is that I never know how the sweatshirt is going to come out. Yes, I screen print a lot and have a lot of faith in myself, but it can get messed up so easily and so quickly and there really isn't much going back, besides going out and buying a new sweatshirt. I am very much a perfectionist and of course people are paying for my product so I want them to look the absolute best they can."

5. Where are you from?

"I am originally from Jackson New Jersey, but am living in ocean city New Jersey currently."

6. Why do you love Etsy?

"I love etsy because I have the ability to reach people all around the world. I've shipped items to Austria, Ireland and just today I shipped an item to Canada! My designs and clothing is being worn all around the world and I think that is really really awesome."


7. Tell me about your shop

"I am a 21 year old college student and I am an art major, which basically means I don't know what kind of job opportunities I am going to have when I get out of college. But harmless villain gives me the opportunity to really do what I want to do. So my shop is really just about me expressing myself thru clothing and accessories. and helping others express themselves also."

8. How did you get interested in crafting?

"I was always interested in crafting, whether it was testing on making my own jewelry or making paintings and wishing i could put them on clothing and wear them myself and always wanting people to want to wear them also. Even as a little girl I was always doing crafts instead of playing with dolls, so it's always been a huge interest of mine."

What is your favorite item from HarmlessVillain?

9. What kind of craft would you like to learn next?

"I would love to learn to sew because that could also add a whole other element to my clothing, because I can add a cloth on top of my printing or some kind of idea like that. I a little bit dabbled into trying to learn to sew, but didn't have the motivation to do so as the time."


10. What's in store for the future?

"I'm currently working on some stencils to put into tote bags which would open up a whole new realm for me to explore. There are endless possibilities I can do with this and I'm really excited. I'm also transitioning to adding t-shirts and tank tops available for designs as well because of the warmer weather coming up!"
