Etsy Find: Black Satin Shoes
Black Satin Shoes is an Etsy shop that I have recently discovered. Chante makes and sells headbands, hair and shoe accessories, and jewelry. The pretty flowers, peacock feathers, and bows all encompass this cute, girly vintage look that I love. And it is all really affordable.
Chante took the time to answer some questions for me:
CP: Is this your full time job?
BSS: My full time job is gong to school but Etsy does take more time since its just little ol' me making everything. It actually brings in more money than when i was working so in a way it is my job.
CP: What inspires your designs?
BSS: I find inspiration everywhere! Lately whenever I see gardens I think of tons of new hair accessories that i want to make for spring.
Shoes really inspire me. I either want to make shoe clips to go with a certain style or make shoe clips based off a certain style. Its my obsession right now.
CP: How long have you been doing this?
BSS: I have only been doing this for a year. I just had my one year anniversary with Etsy on the third of this month, but October is when I really had my shop fully representing me so it took a while to get it going.
Thanks Chante! Visit Black Satin Shoes for more.
