Craft Cafe Artisan Interview - Peachies Pasttime

Meet Laura Roberts from Peachies Pasttime

♥ Please tell us about yourself:
I started making jewelry with my friend and fell in love. After a few months my techniques got better and better. I started learning new things and finding things out on my own, asking others how to do things. I love what I do and love finding new ways to do things!

♥ How long have you been in business?
1 year and 2 months

♥ Please describe your business:
I create bead, wood, shell and glass necklace, bracelet and earring sets. I have recently started doing bottle cap necklaces and domino pendants with amazing graphic images provided to me.

♥ Tell us what inspires you:
Pleasing my customers inspires me. I want them to come back, and come back happy. I know we all do but how are we to get good reviews and new business if we have unhappy customers? I also enjoy doing custom creations, if someone wants something special and they have bought from you before they are likely to come back for that special item. I always make sure each thing I make is something I would wear myself or give to my mother!

♥ Please share with others, your best marketing techniques:
Blog , post around  Facebook on many different pages and have many friends who get the word out about my store.

♥ What do you love most about your business?
There are many things I love but I would say that there are 2 that tie as being the things the things I love most. They are seeing the pop up email saying I have a sale and posting new items for sale.

♥ Please tell us why have chosen Craft CafĂ© as a venue for your business?
I was only selling to family, friends and sorority sisters then I got a Etsy store in April. I heard about Craft Cafe and how it was supposed to be much better and the fees were going to be so much better for the seller. I have since canceled my Etsy store and had 7 sales in my Craft Cafe store. I have found that if you promote your link and other sellers they will in turn do the same for you. I have also found that Craft Cafe works with their sellers and lets them know of any issues they are having fairly fast, something that I really enjoy!!

♥ What advice can you give for crafters/artisans just starting out?
Don't give up, promote, promote, promote and if you think something you created looks funny then put it aside, take a break and come back to it later, maybe you are just tired of looking at it. This happened to me once. I was working on something, I finished it and thought it looked so funny but I but it away and went for a walk, when I came home I took it apart-well some of it- and fixed what needed to be fixed, sometimes you just need to clear your head.

♥ Where do you see your business in 5 years?
I am hoping to have many more talents and more designs. Maybe working with someone who's talents will mold with mine to create a wonderful creation!

♥ Lastly, would you like to offer our readers a special or coupon code for your Craft Cafe shop?
