Favourite Etsy Shop Friday

Favourite Etsy Shop Feature


1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
Wiggletiggy is a joint effort between two best friends that fell in love, married and started a family. All started when Dave's love of Plushies and Suzylynn's many years of sewing experience came together to create something fun for their four children. Dave is the inspiration behind the character design and Suzylynn brings the characters to life.

2. What made you open your shop and why Etsy?
These handcrafted adventurous little creations soon took on a life of their own demanding to be set free upon the rest of the world and Etsy is helping us do that.

3. Do you sell your items anywhere else?
We sell only on Etsy.

4. How did you choose your shop name?
The definition of the word 'Wiggletiggy' means "the feeling you get in your tummy when you buy something fun", and its fun to say.

5. What are your favourite things to do?
Love to spend time with our family. We love to spend time with out Heavenly Father. Visiting friends, volunteer where we can.

6. What inspires you?
Our home, with four children, its full of colorful inspiration. Never a dull moment.

7. Which item in your shop do you enjoy making the most?
We love making the Scallywogs the most, they take time to develop and give us the most satisfaction.

8. Which is your most popular item?
Our most popular items are the gadget cases, people tell us how cute they are. We really appreciate all the positive feedback. The Scallywogs came first, but were slow to sell. Then we decided to make something fun and practical by putting cute faces on pouches.

9. Which handmade possession given to you do you most cherish?
We have a blanket with our family tree on it.

10. Name 3 other Etsy shops you love to visit.

Thank you to Wiggletiggy for being my features Etsy shop this week. It is fun to say isnt it. My favourite is the gadget cases. They would be so cute to take out and about. Im sure they are great conversation starters when you pull them out of you bag. The monsters on the other hand look like they have such personalities and would be great fun to play with. With each one looking different you would have to collect them all. Go and check out this shop and see all the other monsters they have, your guaranteed to get a little giggle out of it.
