Our free, 4-week community-led programme Etsy Resolution is a great opportunity to kickstart 2016 with the support and skills of top-selling Etsy mentors.  We are delighted to introduce yet another one of our inspirational mentors, Kristy Tull from Fox and Ramona.

Fox & Ramona is a Melbourne based homewares brand offering hand crafted concrete products. The business started as a creative outlet for maker and mum-of-one Kristy Tull who initially made resin and polymer jewellery before falling in love with concrete as a medium. Tapping into a “a serious love of accessories, interior design, homewares, art and fashion” and a background in the architectural industry, Kristy has grown her creative business into her full time occupation.

Five quick questions with Kristy

Why is Etsy Resolution a valuable program?

It’s a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of Etsy directly from sellers who are making a successful career from their craft.

Why is the new year a good time to start a small creative business?

Any time is a good time to start a creative business if you ask me!

Why is Etsy is good place to have a small creative business?

Etsy has such a large audience, it’s a great platform for global exposure of your small business.

What inspires your creative business?

I’m inspired by artwork, fashion and other designers and makers. I love seeing other small businesses be successful –  it inspires me to work harder and think outside the box.

What advice do you have for those who are hesitant to get started?

What are you waiting for? One more day that you wait, is another day of online sales missed. You won’t regret opening your shop on Etsy, but you will regret NOT opening it.
