Meet a Full-Time Etsy Shop Owner


I’ve had dreams of starting at least 10 different careers, (fashion stylist, bakery owner, magazine writer, boutique owner, clothing buyer, English teacher, personal shopper, etc. etc. etc) but since I most certainly will never achieve half of those dreams I decided I better start living out my dreams through other people. Hence, I’m starting a series of interviews with people who have awesome jobs.

The series is creatively named, “Hey, Cool Job.” And I’m kicking it off with Anne Bowers, owner of Ladygirl Vintage. I’m pretty excited about it.

Anne and I met through mutual friends when I was living in Provo, Utah in 2009. We both eventually made the move up to Salt Lake City, and after running into her a few months ago and hearing about her Etsy shop I had major job envy. So I thought she’d be the perfect person to interview, and she didn’t disappoint!Meet Anne

After selling refashioned vintage clothing on Etsy and at local pop-up shops for two years, she’s got a pretty cool thing going. Here’s a look into the life of Anne:

Eying on Etsy: Art by Amanda Blake

I’m always on the look-out for new artists who sell on Etsy, since it’s the only art I could maybe-almost afford. (Though I’m usually still too cheap to actually buy it.)

My most recent find I’m excited about is the art of Amanda Blake. Her shop is called thisisalliknow, but she has even more art on her flickr account.

I love the random portraits that, if I were to hang them in my house, would probably have people asking if they are of a family member or ancestor. Nope! Just a random person on a cool background.
