It is important to show the world the charm of handmade items. I plan to do this one Etsy artist at a time. Today I feature crazytimescandles. This husband and wife team have a wonderful selection of bath and body products.
I have personally tried their coffee scrub (delicious!) flower pot candle (mmm!) and a couple of other items.
If you're looking for a unique and useful gift, crazytimescandles has something for you.
Below you will find their interview:
1. What is the first memory of crafting that you can recall?
That is a tough question, but for me I would have to say making hand prints and pencil holders in clay back in kindergarten and first grade. I always enjoyed that even though it got quite messy.
2. What do you specialize in?
High quality hand poured candles and handmade soap and bath & body products.
3. What made you decide to open up a shop on Etsy?
Etsy is a great community for people who enjoy handmade products and we wanted to be a part of that. We had looked at Etsy back in October of 2007 briefly and set up an account but didn't add any items to our shop until January 11th 2008.
4. What are your hopes for the future?
We hope to continue to expand our business at a steady pace where we can end up with a fairly large wholesale account base as well as attending more craft fairs / shows in the future. We are considering the possibility of a brick and mortar store in the future as well depending on which way we grow faster.
5. What are some of your favorite past times?
We really enjoy camping in the summer and visiting with family and friends.
6. Try to sum up your workspace in as few words as possible.
Our workspace is our basement. Every wall has shelves, and there are tables everywhere each with it's own purpose.
7. How do you feel about custom orders?
We love working on custom orders. We do a lot of custom colored candles especially for weddings and parties. I really think that people like the ability to get a lavender scented candle colored green to match their room for example.
