Made by Hank gives me this feeling. This feeling of "handmade" goodness. The feeling that when I purchase an item, I know I'm getting personal attention, one on one customer service, one-of-a-kind products that not everyone has.
This is the bag that I am patiently waiting for, to arrive in my mailbox any day now. Katie made this for me, at my request, and it's one of kind, and is SO... ME. That's what I love about this shop.
Katie's shop also makes me say Hmmmmm.
She doesn't list every day. She probably would like to(?) or maybe this is her intent, but I'm totally intrigued by this practice. Katie does Shop Updates every few weeks. She works her fingers to the bones, and creates a handful of bags,pouches/purses, photographs them all at once, and updates her Etsy shop all in one full swoop.
I'm thinking that this might be something I could do. And maybe it would be better. Easier. To create 15 things, and list them all at once. And hey, if they are 15 wonderful, beautiful, perfect pieces (like Katies are!) then maybe they would all sell out. And instead of getting little dribbles of paypal cash here and there, there would be a hunk of paypal cash all at once. If I'm successful at this, that's how it would work.
If you have a minute, check out Katie's Made By Hank shop- you will NOT be sorry and I know you'll fall in love with something!
Here is her website and her blog too.
