I’m super thrilled to introduce you to my new series called Indie Brand/Seller Spotlight, a once-a-month (or maybe two 😉 ) feature of some of the amazing indie brands and sellers I’ve meet in the blogosphere. I’ve always wanted to show my support for local and/or small businesses and thought doing a spotlight here on my blog is just the perfect way to do it (and no I don’t charge for this feature at all).
And today, I’m excited to share one of my favorite Etsy sellers, Lindsey from Silent Poetry Arts! She’s the lady that got me hooked into washi tapes and getting more creative with them.
At Silent Poetry Arts, Lindsey specializes in high quality washi tape, fold over elastic, baker’s twine and so much more. She offers only the finest supplies and embellishments to color your world. Each one of her products is perfect for stocking your crafting studio or gifting to a budding handmade artisan.
Get to know more about Lindsey and what she does best and why you need to take a good browse of her Etsy shop. (Pssst she ships worldwide too!)
What made you decide to launch Silent Poetry Arts?
I’ve always been so jealous of artists and their creative lifestyles. I wanted one for myself so I started an Etsy shop. At first I listed my photographs, some vintage items, lip scrubs, bath bombs and some misc craft supplies just to get it started. I started selling my stuff and I was hooked! Many things have changed and it’s evolved into an actual business in what feels like overnight.
Tell us about the items you offer and what do you look for in a product before you offer to sell it in your shop?
It’s kind of a mix of handmade and wholesale. I make my lip scrubs, heart confetti and felt hearts but the rest is wholesale.I would never sell anything in my shop that I wouldn’t personally use in my own craft projects. When I look for a new product I start with something I love to use and the research starts there. I’ve learned to trust my instincts and only sell what I really know will be a success and my customer’s will love.
You currently have over 1k – 5 stars reviews on Etsy (which is absolutely fabulous by the way ) but would you like to tell us more what differentiate you from other sellers out there?
I genuinely love my customers. Seriously. I adore each and everyone of them and I do my best to make every purchasing experience great for them. I love giving little random gifts in my orders; who doesn’t love a little something extra?
And I always think of them when I’m preparing my orders. If there is a design someone said they would love to see months ago I’ll remember and get it the second I see it available. I think of my customers in every decision I make and I really love seeing that reflected in my shop reviews and customer satisfaction.
As fans of washi tapes & everything crafty, what can we look forward to see in the future from Silent Poetry Arts?
My goal for my business includes new washi designs at least once a month and new products every 3 months at a minimum.
So far this year I’ve introduced adorable animal washi tape dispenser and gorgeous floral fabric tapes. I have new products lined up for the next two months that I hope my customer’s love and I plan to keep the momentum going even further into the year.
I haven’t released any information on this yet but I’m so happy to say I’m going to be a supplier for “The Twinery” twine starting at the end of July. They have the best quality twine in so many amazing color options. I’m thrilled for this new product to be introduced into my shop.
And last but not the least, what advice would you give us handmade/DIY or washi tapes enthusiasts who are just getting started to have fun and in need of the right tools to prettify our projects?
Shop online and shop small. I love supporting fellow Etsy shop owners and shopping online is so much fun. You get to take your time and fill your cart and add and take away items until you get exactly what you want. Besides, shopping is better in pajamas 🙂
And we couldn’t agree more Lindsey! Shopping has never been so much fun these days and yep, better in pajamas! LOL.
