Are they for kids?
We always sell many types of things and have an assortment from scratch. Children are really great for this because they really have an immediate response and love it.
How did you start the store?
I was inspired to start the shop back in 2001 when my daughter was just a baby, and I was taking the dog for walks. It was a few years ago when I discovered that I could make money selling crafts and so we decided to get started.
Has the store grown over the years, or has everything changed so much that you couldn’t keep up with the demand?
No. Every store I am in now is almost different from its previous location. It grew a lot for a while but has declined a lot now, with the store shutting its doors for good in 2012, and there not being a permanent location. We are not selling products anymore, and we are getting our products shipped out to the UK and US and there are no plans for a new store.
What is your favorite item in the shop? Is it your favorite to sell?
I would say it is the most popular item. We stock many things that we do not sell at other places. For this, I would say it is the little green bean. I love to see everyone’s reaction to it.
What are a few of your favorite crafts to sell?
There are many. In the past I would just try to cater to the families who come by and grab the things I wanted them to get and leave.
Why did you decide to come to a school that uses this type of craft? How did you come to choose a school?
It was a very good idea to have us go to Woodwind and Brass Institute (WCBI) in Greenburgh, NY. They run summer workshops with crafts that are similar to ours and they are pretty awesome. At the last workshop they had we did just a simple pipe wrench and a small piece of metal. They also had the little “litter box” which is a little box with a piece of wood inside that is usually folded up tightly and can then either be used for a book, a bowl or other things. We were able to get some of the items we need to make jewelry boxes to use.
What was your biggest challenge in starting the shop?
It was a challenge in that it was so much work being open and in such close proximity to other stores, and it had to
