Etsymom Giveaway #4 - Polka Dot Bungalow (Closed)

Today our Etsymom Giveaway will be hosted by Polka Dot Bungalow. This store is run by Stephanie and she makes beautiful baby products from Car Seat Canopy to Beanies to Headbands. Here is more information about this cute store!

What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?

My store name is Polka Dot Bungalow. I have been with Etsy since December 2009. I joined with Etsymom in January 2010 and love all the helpful information that the team has to offer.

How did you get started as an artist?

Back in 2007 when I found out I was having a baby girl, I instantly started working on cute accessories to start her wardrobe. From bows to tutus to headbands to beanies the talent began to grow. It’s an art that each one of us have in certain areas. I enjoyed making these pieces for my little one and wanted to bring my ideas to the table and let mothers everywhere have a change to enjoy them as well. With a love for accessories, I have since started a line for women of all ages and sweet little boys.

What sets you apart from other people making similar items?

Everyone has their special touch to these items. My store offers a variety of different styles, in which customers can shop around for their certain style. I have often been regarded as one who steps outside of the box in my designs. I love creating new pieces and putting my special touch to them.

What’s your favorite valentine’s item in your store?

I have to say that my favorite valentine’s item would be the Baby/Toddler Pink Flower Clip with Three Interchangeable Headbands. This provides the mother with different options to choose from when creating an outfit for their child. It also allows them to use the flower to wear with their own headband, hat or just simply wear alone as a hair clip.

Give us one tip on how you managed to create/sell/manage your store and at the same time be a busy mom?

The easiest way to make the best of every endeavor your involved in is to be happy in what you do. I am truly happy in being a mother to my little girl, she is my full time job. Finding time to design and create my pieces is during nap time or in the evening once she has drifted off to sleep.. I treat my shop as a job that I love and that makes it not like work at all.

Stephanie will be giving away her favorite item from the store - Baby/Toddler Pink Flower Clip with Three Interchangeable Headbands.
