It's Monday, time to welcome some more WESTie's to the team! Say hello to Celeste Cote and Dandy Denial
Where are you from?
Alberta and Nova Scotia, respectively. However we both currently live in Ochre River, MB
What is your shop name?
Of Course You Can!
When did you start your Etsy shop?
In the Spring of 2010
Why did you decide to start an Etsy shop?
We were already obsessed crafters and recyclers, and sold most of these things at festivals and on consignment in stores. We had heard of Etsy, and it seemed like a corner of the internet that we would be well suited to, and thrilled to be a part of!
What do you sell?
All kinds of things! Recycled designer clothing, hand bound books, jewelry, print art (patches, posters, postcards, etc.), photographs, one inch buttons, zines, the list goes on. The common denominator is that we try and use recycled or repurposed materials as much as possible, and many of our items are entirely made from previously used materials.
What is your favorite item to make?
Celeste is really into crinolines these days. Dandy loves to stitch together blank journals.
What are your long-term Etsy goals?
Currently our store provides enough to gently supplement our income from other sources. We'd love to see it play a bigger role in supporting us financially in the future. But more importantly, we just want to see it continue to help us spread the things we make far and wide!
