Featured Etsian... PrettyNPreppy!

Sally: What brought you to Etsy?
Jennifer: I've known about Etsy for awhile and when mom and I decided to start a business and make some of our own products, I knew Etsy was the best place for us to get our feet wet.

Sally: Who or what  inspires your creations?
Jennifer: Without a doubt, the fabrics.  There are so many designers out there making fabulous fabric lines.  As soon as we see one, ideas start flowing as to how we can best showcase it.

Sally: What time of day do you work best and why?
Jennifer: Afternoons and evenings tend to be the most productive around here.  No sense even trying to work before caffeine has been consumed.

Sally: Who do you market to? Who do you see buying your work?
Jennifer: We market mainly to women although we have had some requests for more "manly" designs.  I would think college students, moms, eco-friendly type people would be drawn to our work.

Sally: What item do you like to work on the most and why?
Jennifer: So far, we've liked everything we've worked with.

Sally: What is your favorite beverage while you work?
Jennifer: We get so wrapped up in making stuff that drinks usually go warm.  We will celebrate their completion though with a beer. :)

Sally: What is something that you don’t do well that you’d like to do better?
Jennifer: I just started sewing in June so there's still a lot I need to learn.

Sally: If you could interview your main influence who would it be and what would you ask?
Jennifer: Starting out, we looked towards Lily Pulitzer as a role model - all the pinks, greens, and flamingos!  I would just love to know what words of encouragement she could give us.

Sally: What do you listen to while you work? While you don’t work?
Jennifer: While we work, our go to music is Pink Floyd which seems kinda weird but it works for us.  While we're not at work, I tend to stick with the 70's classic rock, 80's new wave, or 90's grunge.  Mom leans a little more country.

Janet & Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to answer all of the questions!  It is always so much fun getting to know new people!

Readers, Thank you for joining us once again... it is a joy to have so many interested in what is behind the shop!
