What brought you to Etsy?
A friend and sewing classmate from Austin told me about Etsy for the first time. I am so grateful! It’s the best thing that I ever found for my business and it’s packed full of great advice.
Tell us about your shop.
My shop is vintagerenewal.etsy.com. I am the Indie Furniture Re-designer for Vintage Renewal. Vintagerenewal is an online green furniture boutique specializing in blending both classic and modern pieces to create one-of-a-kind usable art for your home.
How is your shop eco-friendly?
The furniture and art objects created for Vintage Renewal are inspired by past decades, fashion styles, different cultures, antique furniture, and vintage craft books. The frames covered are found or existing objects that are given a new lease on life. The upholstery is commonly covered in vintage fabrics and recycled fabrics. We are a green boutique and practice green upholstery design.
Do you sell anywhere else?
Yes, I also sell on vintagerenewal.com and in local boutiques in and around Denver, CO.
What’s the favorite item you’ve made so far?
My favorite item to this day is still something that sold called the Silhouette Stripe/Floral Chair. It was the perfect mix of masculine and feminine and I loved the lines of the chair and how artsy the finished product was when it all pulled together.
What has been the most useful lesson you’ve learned (about Etsy) so far?
Pictures are worth a thousand words on etsy. As soon as I improved those, I was working in a whole new ball field.
How do you see your store developing?
I see my store developing and expanding into vintage trinkets and how to advice. I have already launched gogreenwithjeanne.com for how to advice and gogreenwithjeanne.etsy.com is for vintage trinkets.
What have you been doing today that I’ve interrupted?
I am getting ready to go to my full-time job which is managing an architectural antique showroom. Working there has very much inspired my work, but I better go get ready or I’m going to be late! Thanks for the interview!
