Etsy Seller Interview Series- WeepingWillowCrochet

Updated on June 24, 2015

1. When did you open your shop?

"I opened my shop April 19, 2015."

2. What do you make?

"I specialize in baby items, such as booties, washcloths, photography props, dresses, blankets, sweaters, headbands and a lot more. I realize only two of the items stated are listed. I'm currently working on getting photos taken of the other items."


3. What is your favorite item in your shop?

"My favorite item would have to be the Peekaboo Baby Sandals. They're adorable, and a lot of fun to make."

4. What is your biggest challenge?

"My biggest challenge is getting views for my shop and the items I have listed."

5. Where are you from?

"I am from Springfield, MO, and have lived in the Ozarks for most of my life."

6. Why do you love Etsy?

"I love Etsy because it brings together a network of other crafters and allows them to showcase their talents. Without Etsy, I wouldn't know where to go to order a lot of items from handmade buttons and dog collars."


7. Tell me about your shop

"My shop was created with the intent of selling quality baby items in order to help bring in extra income to my household. I'd like to be able to support my own yarn-loving habits and have enough money to give my children the things they love and deserve. In this day and age, finding a job that pays over minimum wage is hard, and I'd like to do what I love for a living."

What is your favorite item from WeepingWillowCrochet?

8. How did you get interested in crafting?

"I was never really into crafting when I lived at home with my mom. She was really into scrapbooking and would often try to get me to join her. She would occasionally crochet things like scarves, but I didn't get into crochet until I found out I was pregnant with my first son. I wanted to give him something that I had made with love. What was supposed to be a simple single crochet blanket was a lopsided, uneven mess. I worked really hard to perfect my skills with the basic stitches, and now I'm able to do almost anything that is asked of me."

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

"I'd really like to learn to knit next. I think the items that are created from that craft are absolutely beautiful, and I like my work to have a more elegant appearance. I just have a hard time using two hands instead of one."

10. What's in store for the future?

"What's in store is me adding more items to the shop. I'm trying to do it gradually, but fairly consistently, and I'm finding out that it's a little bit harder than I had originally thought."
