Let's meet our new wonderful sponsor of giveaway #4

My shop is Revamped Designs and I sell uniquely redesigned and refinished furniture and home decor

1. How long have you had your shop?
I opened my shop on June 12, 2011

2. What inspired you to make Revamped Designs?
My passion for all things old and vintage, I love things from the older eras !! I love the idea of giving things with a story and history a second chance at life ! I have always wanted my own business and this just seemed natural, I used to just do this for myself and my own home. Then friends and family started asking me to make over their stuff. And so ReVamped Designs was born !

3. Who or what inspires you to create?
I have always been crafty and creative, an artsy person you could say. It doesn't take much to inspire me . I hunt treasures all the time so when I see something that catches my eye my creative juices get flowing!

4. What has been your biggest accomplishment as a shop owner / artist?
My biggest accomplishment so far is finding three almost identical vintage picture frames. Lol a customer ordered a frame and wanted 2 more like it, I looked and looked and finally found two matches. The frame was very vintage and extremely unique so it was a miracle I found two very very similar matches for her ! 

5. What has been the hardest part about starting a business?
The hardest for me is photography. I am a perfectionist. I want everything to be perfect on my photos, I'm learning and getting better.

6. What would be your biggest tip to a brand new shop owner / artist on etsy?
 My advice to an artist is always be inspired, always make time to create. As artists, creators and crafters it's what makes us happy !! Try new teqniques experiment with your craft!
My advice to a shop owner would be to hang in there, don't get discouraged.  Keep advertising, promoting, networking and make new friends!! In the old days that's how all businesses strived and survived, friends and good old word of mouth!!
