Crafting Amongst Friends & My First “Rush”

http://happycoupleshop.com/2014/04/28/crafting-among…-my-first-rush/

Things are getting very exciting around here.  Its official!  My crocheted crafts are sitting in a store, ya me!  I live in New Hampshire and am soo excited to announce a great new store called Crafting Amongst Friends.  This a great little shop that features all kinds of local crafters.  This is one of those stores where you will find all those great little items that you will never find anywhere else.  From décor to jewelry to apparel and purses, they offer something for everyone!  Interestingly I heard about them from my hairdresser sister who gets all of the gossip in town.

As someone just starting out their handmade business this opportunity is very exciting for me.  I have had an Etsy shop since December and while I know that I desperately need more listings (which means more time to make) I haven’t had a lot of success.  I am determined to spend the next few months filling my shop with lots of goodies for summer, weddings, and babies.  Unfortunately none of this will happen until I have some more time to create, in about a week after finals are over.  But believe me you will be seeing some very cool things in the “summer line”.

In the meantime though my very favorite creations are being consigned in this beautiful new shop.  Seeing my items in a store is just about the coolest feeling in the world.  Now I see where the entrepreneurship “rush” and excitement comes from.  I highly recommend checking this place out if you are in the area.  Not only can you get some very cool and unique things but you are supporting your local artisans and community.  Check out Crafting Amongst Friends on Facebook or stop by at 16 Opera House Square, Claremont, NH.  You can find my Etsy shop here.

What gave you your first business “rush”?  Have you ever consigned your crafts?  How did it work out?  Please share!
