My brand was started 1 year ago making wallets, totes, and purses. I began selling contemporary brand name products on ebay 10 years ago and I watched the quality of goods spiral downhill each year.
I wanted to provide quality products that I could be proud to pass on to others and I enjoy creating things with my own hands.
I began selling at art fairs, farmers markets, and street events here in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA.
All events were cancelled this year and so for several months I delivered groceries to keep money coming in.
I have recently had a couple of special orders and that has encouraged me to regroup and start making things again.
I was paying for a shopify website but they no longer answer the phone and so I found a new web provider that will answer the phone.
In the meantime I have been learning how to use streaming as a means to connect with people. I am very isolated with all that has happened this year and I am very grateful to have met so many good people here on Dlive.
I began by narrating from a book I like very much called the I Ching. It is a book said to be thousands of years old that connects those who use it to the spirit world in an attempt to help ourselves and everyone we are connected to persevere through challenges that we all face in this life.
I also have taken this time stuck at home to learn to sing and play guitar. I have played several instruments over the years but never was able to discipline my self to play well. I am streaming lessons as I push myself to become more well rounded as a musician.
I will also be streaming my leather work as I attempt to rebuild my business.
I have found Dlive to be a very positive community where everyone is working to learn, support, and encourage growth in so many ways.
Thank you very much for visiting my channel. I look forward to meeting you while we all take the next step in this adventure called life.
