Old Farmhouse Gathering Market place Monday!!!!

For those who are lucky enough to live on farms (in my opinion) it is the time of year to plan the garden, vegetables and herbs, and also order the chicks for the year. We usually purchase our egg layers from the Amish but raise our other birds from day old hatchlings. When I saw this wonderful product from Betty, I just had to share. I see it and think of warmer weather and I think that will be appreciated in all parts of the country this year.

About Bette:
1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?

I have three Etsy shops.

Tomorrows Treasures for the patterns I design. My business name is Bette's Tomorrows Treasures but it had to be cut down to fit for Etsy.

Thrifty Notions is where I sell supplies and some vintage items.

Handmade By Bette is my newest shop for handmade items.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?

Two years.

3. What type of items do you offer?

My own patterns, supplies and vintage items and a variety of handmade items including purses, hot pads and feedsack pillows.

4. How long have you been crafting?

I was taught to knit and crochet at a very young age and learned to sew at 16.
I started my business 20 years ago.

5. Who or What inspires you?

I am a trend watcher. I love trying new things and sometimes it is an old craft done in a new way.

My favorite medium to work with is recycled jeans. My favorite item is the embellished recycled jeans purse I designed recently.

Experts have talked about this before. How many times have you read about the importance of ‘adding value’ for your audience? How many times have you read about ‘building trust’ with your readers/prospects?
Many, many times. You know it well. Every marketing guru has spoken about this topic. I’m sick of hearing it. But it STILL bears repeating.
