As part of our run-up to the Etsy Christmas pop-up shop at the end of this month, we’d like to introduce some of our sellers to you. We asked them a few questions about their shop, how they became an Etsy seller and their golden tips for online success!
This episode: Cherie from DirtyThoughtsSoapswks
Cherie makes vegan friendly soap and bath bombs from natural ingredients, using as many sustainable and/or local sources as possible. She then lovingly wraps them in vintage maps she finds at charity shops.
How did you choose your shop name?
The name came to me almost immediately when I decided I would start making and selling my own soap. I just liked the cheekiness and double meaning of the name.
How did you decide to be an Etsy Seller?
I am new to Cambridge and wanted to access the market here.
What do you love most about your products?
I love the scents, they are so evocative of different times in my life.
What have been your biggest challenges in running an Etsy Shop?
Standing out against the competition.
What are your best tips for running an Etsy shop?
Persistence! And adding new products often.
Come meet Cherie, and our other sellers at the Fountain Inn, 12 Regent Street, Cambridge!
