An Interview with Leslie
3 fun facts about Leslie:
1. High School Spanish Teacher turned Homemaker and Etsy Shop owner
2. KC Chiefs Fan
3. Recently moved to Tampa
When did you open your etsy shop?
I opened in May 2013
What is the story behind the start of your shop?
I had just moved to Tampa and was looking all over for these elastic hair ties and couldn't find them so I decided to make them myself after realizing it was the same elastic I use to make my daughter floral headbands.
What has been the hardest thing about starting your shop?
More time! I would love to spend more time updating listings and improving my photography but with a toddler my 'work time' is devoted to fast shipping. ;)
What has been your favourite part about it?
I love the communication and planning custom orders for birthday celebrations, Sweet 16 parties and bridal events. It is fun to help suggest colors and patterns and reach a design my customers are excited about.
How do most of your customers find out about your shop?
Most of my customers find my shop through Etsy search engines. Some from Pintrest and the rest through give-always and blog pages like this one !
What is one of the most popular items in your shop?
Collegiate sets!! Alabama, Ohio State and LSU and for colors mint and peach were very popular over the summer.
Where else can we find you online?
Leslie sent us some of her hair ties to try out and we're loving them! I've used them for myself, for quick pony tails, and I use them on the girls to cover up less-cute hair elastics :) They're also really cute to wear around your wrist for future use! (see photo at the top of the page) We tried some of her regular sized ties (perfect size for pony tails for Talia (who has very thick hair) and I. For Katrina I had a feeling the "Teeny Ties" would be more her size- and they are. They're also great for small pony tails that don't use all of Talia's hair.
I think my favourite thing about the shop is that you can order party favor sets! Leslie will work with you to create custom sets to go with your party theme- she's great at this- I worked with her for my girls' upcoming parties and she was so helpful in coming up with cute sets that we liked and thought went with our party themes- I was so excited to get them in the mail! (I'll post about those later- the parties haven't happened yet ;)
But now let's get to something for you!! :)
AND she's going to give one of you $25 to spend in her shop!
