Getting to know MamaBear Baby Wear:
What got you started in selling items in your Etsy shop? Etsy was recommended by a friend, and after over a year of putting it off as just another Internet thing I’d have to keep up with and didn’t really have time for I actually looked at Etsy and LOVED it immediately! It’s so much more personal than other venues like eBay and gives me a chance to really meet my customer’s needs!
What is one piece of advice you wish someone would have told you when you started cloth diapering? “You’re probably going to want to try several systems and styles before you find what works best for you.”
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not sewing/working for your shop? Spend time with my family, especially my daughter who is definitely my favorite person on earth!
What is your favorite item in your shop and why? This sleep sack - I’ve got another little one coming and was experimenting to get back into the swing of making teeny tiny things again (a 3 year old makes newborn stuff look like toys!) and I just LOVE this wool sleep sack I created. It’s definitely better than anything I bought at the store the first time around (with my daughter). (Although it's currently sold out, I can make more!)
What is your favorite material to work with? Wool! (Well, technically Cashmere, but it’s such a rare thing to find!)
How long has your shop been open? I’ve been selling on Etsy since January 2009, but I’ve been creating and selling MamaBear items since January 2007
