First Members Monday!

Hi everyone - BySaraLynn here. To start off March with a bang, I'm going to be writing a new weekly feature here on the EtsyWMI team blog!  For the past couple of months every Monday our featured shop of the week has been changing in the sidebar.  Members Monday is going to give us a little peak into that shop every week and the person behind it along with introducing a few new members.  So here goes!

   
Mary Beth from Island Girl Bags is our new EtsyWMI shop of the week.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your shop
I'm a stay at home mom of two boys who are very busy with school activities and sports. I've been married to the most supportive man for 12 years now. My shop consists of mostly handbags and tons of accessories that fit right into your bag!

What are you currently working on? 
I'm always working on my inventory. I've got a bunch of outdoor shows coming up this Spring and Summer so I'm working on having a lot of choices for my customers.

What do you like to do in your free time outside of your business? 
Both of my boys are in hockey, soccer and baseball so that keeps me super busy. I love watching them play their sports.

Where would you to see your shop and business in a year?
I would love to get my name out a little more locally. I've started doing home shows and really enjoy them, so it's getting there.

Where can we find you online and/or locally?
http://www.islandgirlbags.com and on Etsy. Locally I do home parties and different events throughout the summer.

Thanks so much for being our first interview, Mary Beth! Be sure to check out some of her items this week in the sidebar.

And now to welcome a few new EtsyWMI members. A warm welcome to AugustMoonArtistree, bellajoy, and TheElegantElle.

Hi there! Love your bags, they make me long for summer- at least the sun is shining lately, haha! (at least, it is in Holland... :) I went to mark you as a favorite and discovered I already had!

Blessings,
Kat

Very cute bags. I love reading about other artists and what they do in their spare time.
