ETSY FEATURE FRIDAY - A Flair for Buttons

Who doesn't love flair? Shelley Haganmen owns the shop A Flair for Buttons over on Etsy.  Shelley was kind enough to send me some buttons you had made with my designs and they are some of my favorite things. They are 1 inch, some are flatbacks and some are pins. It's always cool to see how others use my sheets. 

We did a little Q & A with Shelley. 

WHAT IS YOUR SHOPS NAME? AND WHAT DO YOU SELL?

My name is Shelley Haganman and I am the owner of "aflairforbuttons" on Etsy. I make and sell one inch flair buttons/pins. My buttons are for paper projects (cards, scrapbooking, etc.), to be worn on clothing, bags, hats, etc., or to use as magnets.

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START SELLING?

I am a huge crafter and have been on several design teams creating for companies like Maya Road and Canvas Corps. I love mixed media, photography, scrapbooking and enjoy combing them in my work. I have always loved flair buttons and 5 years ago I started my own small business exclusively selling my flair. I sell my flair buttons/pins all over the world. I love meeting new people and enjoy sharing my love of flair with others. I sell flair to several scrapbooking kit clubs including Scrapbooking and Cards Today, Maya Road, and others. I sell to several brick and mortar stores as well. I am able also to do custom buttons when time allows.

 WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF CREATING?

Creating for me is a great escape and it is calming to me to work on making my buttons. I love collaborating with others in the designs I use and also love creating my own designs

DO YOU SELL AT CRAFT SHOWS? IF SO, WHERE?

I only sell my buttons on Etsy.

ANY ADVICE FOR ANYONE WANTING TO START THEIR OWN ETSY SHOP?

Believe in yourself, provide exceptional customer service, offer high quality products and stand behind what you sell. I have a real passion for my little buttons. I work full time as nurse but I get so much pleasure out of making and sharing my buttons that it is fun for me.
