NEW Marketplace Thursday Shop Features!

Good morning all! Today's featured shops are the best of the best in crafting. They have shops that show their personalities and personal touches show their energies and give a definite feel to what their shops contain! They are experts carrying out their talents. while displaying their abilities, in a very attractive fashion ! Rabbit Hollow Prims and Sue Green's Keepsake Korner are the two artists I will be talking about today!

The first featured shop is Rabbit Hollow Prims

This artist is AMAZING! There are two parts of a person that has chosen a life of creation and selling what they create. There is a part that understands business and self promotion, and part that is creative and artistic. Sometimes those sides are hard to get equalized and one side is stronger than the other and it is hard to keep them separate and equally strong and active! This gal however, has very strong knowhow on BOTH counts and makes looking through her shop enjoyable AND a truly fun shopping experience! She has perks for her noteworthy buyers to gain points for new purchases to keep her followers and true artist lovers inspired and she now is accepting charge cards for purchases!..NOT to mention that she has TONS of talent and puts it in all of her creations that you could easily fall in love with what she has regardless....but there is nothing like mixing in a little fun in the process! She has thought about the ease , while inspiring her purchasers to come back and buy more, by giving them a way to save during this very difficult time of lost jobs and money being so hard to find today! WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

Her shop screams energy and variety and what more would you want in a shop that knows how to move and grove! She has been recently picked to be one of the top 100 ETSY shops! You'll soon see why she was given this honor. She is there for her customers 100% providing quality items in an experience you won't soon forget!

The following are an example of what Sue has to offer. Come in and see for yourself for there are 10 pages worth of GREAT items at great prices!

She has alot in her shop and there is just so much to see! First find out about Sue from how she responded to the questions that were asked of OFG and see what she had to say:

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
Rabbit Hollow Prims because my mom had the name for her shop when it was open and wanted to carry on the name.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
About 2 years
3. What type of items do you offer?
primitive dolls. vintage patterns, fabrics and turkey calls
4. How long have you been crafting?
17 years
5. Who or What inspires you?
All the other doll artists out there.
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
I couldn't pick just one but I love Halloween the most.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)

As you can see she is can be found in many places and is easily accessible to her customers! Do yourself a favor and come in and see Rabbit Hollow Prims shop today! It will be time well spent!


The next Shop I have to feature is Keepsake Korner

This is a GREAT shop and has a quiet elegance about it! Her items have such primitive beauty and charm and would lovely in any primitive/ country home! Her talent is polished and perfect and will make your heart melt when you see her shop!

Come take a look at some of my personal favorites:

Items of times gone past is the feeling that you will get just seeing this shop! It will end up being a primitive playland when you go to shop there!

Now spend some time and meet the artist:

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
KeepSakeKorner. As to how the name came about.....actually...nothing
special. Wanted a name that reflected items you would want to keep. So I
played around with some names. Now my sub-line "Creations from Stitches of
Thread" came about from playing around with names that represented for the
most part, my creativity in fibers.
2. How long have you been on Etsy? I believe a year and 3 months now. Started
May 2008.
3. What type of items do you offer? Many purposeful/needful items. Most are
sewing. I do alot of other art work, but haven't display much on Etsy.
4. How long have you been crafting? Just about all my life. My grandmother
that raised me taught me to sew. She was a lovely seamstress. Did alot of
sewing during the depression to bring in extra money.
5. Who or What inspires you? Words from novels, poems etc. can inspire me. Then
there is God's Creation! Awesome!
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why? Oh I guess my Yo-Yo Flower
picture that is framed. Right now they are alot of fun. I get bored easily,
(perhaps I have ADD)will thus try new things and go all out for a while
until the boredom bug bites. ! :)
7. Other places where you can be found. On my blog

If you like primitive items and things that remind you of times gone by...this is the shop to visit! I'm sure you will have a great time!


I hope you have enjoyed meeting the artists and seeing their featured shops today! Tomorrow I will have two more artists and shops to meet so come back and see who they will be! Until next time.....
