Getting to know Boulevard Designs
What got you started in selling items in your Etsy shop?
I had owned my main business, Wallypop, for about four years at the time I opened my Etsy shop. The main purpose was to allow me to create items beyond just those I was able to keep regularly stocked at Wallypop, and to branch out a bit. I love the creativity that Etsy allows me
What is one piece of advice you wish someone would have told you when you started cloth diapering?
Hm. This actually doesn't apply to me, but with the way the industry has changed since I started diapering, I often tell people NOW not to be paralyzed with fear over the variety of brands out there. Don't go hog wild with a brand you've never heard of, read reviews, but don't be afraid to try one or two diapers from a new company.
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not sewing/working for your shop?
Playing with my kids.
What is your current favorite item in your shop, and why?
Though it's not diapering related, the soap I made from Ginger's milk is so wonderful. It's moisturizing, gentle,and smells amazing. And I love that it's mostly local ingredients and the milk came from my very own goat.
What is your favorite material to work with?
How long has your shop been open?
