Our First Cottage Guest - The Meg Shop

I thought it was about time to have a guest visit us here at the Hand Crafted Cottage. I am so pleased that Meghan from The Meg Shop decided to pop in! I just love her jewellery shop, which is filled with breathtakingly beautiful pieces! Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and even a sale or two - she has everything a girl could need!

As I look through her catalogue of beauties I am particularly drawn to these Olive Cluster earrings. Stunning in colour, I can imagine myself wearing them with a multitude of outfits, in a multitude of different occasions. I feel like these are the types of earrings where you choose an outfit to compliment them and not the other way around!

As we sip on some sweet tea in the garden I'm eager to ask Meg some questions about her shop:

Meg, tell me, when did you join Etsy?

I joined Etsy in June of 2009 to sell my handmade jewellery. I'm still very new at this, but I'm loving it!
And what is something about your shop that we may not know?

I don't know, I hope to carry only sterling silver in the future!
What is your personal favorite from all your items in your shop?

My favorite piece listed at the moment is my Jet Rock Candy Pendant! I spent hours on it and am so happy with the way it turned out!

So where else can we find you besides your Etsy shop?

I recently created a fan page on facebook. Just search The Meg Shop and it should come up! ( ) I will be keeping this page updated with pictures of new items, information on sales in my Etsy shop, and upcoming giveaways! You can also find me on Twitter, my username is TheMegShop.
What would you say is your favorite thing about Etsy?

I love everything about Etsy! It's an amazing venue to showcase your handmade items, and a great place to find unique gifts. I love reading all the Featured Seller and Quit Your Day Job articles. I find them to be so inspiring!
What is your favorite Etsy shop right now(it's so great to give shout-outs isn't it!)?

I have so many! RockoAndAddie has the cutest little blankets, I can't wait to have another baby! I love everything from Bonzie, and BloomStudios has some amazing pieces! And definitely ellembee!!! I could go on and on...
What is one thing that you can say sets you apart as an Etsy shop owner?

Well I would like to say what sets me apart is how much I truly care that my customers love their items, but this can be said of many shop owners on Etsy!

*Look at how gorgeous these are!! I think it's clear how much care and love she puts into each piece!

So, fun question - let's say you were stuck on an island and could only have one Etsy purchase until you were rescued...what would it be?

This quilt from SFOQuilter! I'm such a blanket person, and I want this one in the worst way!
What is one thing you would like to see Etsy improve or change?

I would love to be able to have my prices in Canadian dollars. I think a lot of Canadian buyers would appreciate this!
And, last but not least, I must know...what is your favorite animal??!!

I love elephants! I think they are amazing!

Meg - thank you so much for taking the time to come and visit me here at the Hand Crafted Cottage!! Your jewellery is simply stunning and wish you all the best with your Etsy shop and beyond!
