I asked Patricia (Dellcovespices) about how do they started their spices shop on Etsy and this is her awesome story.
Patricia said:My husband started up the shop last fall as a way to do something with his free time when our jobs forced us to temporarily live in two different cities (he's in the Midwest, I'm on the West Coast). I started helping him out with ideas, and was drawn to the online community here on Etsy.
Part of the reason he did it was to help pay for the cost of plane tickets to fly back and forth, so we could see one another.
But then, we both found it to be a blast. We both love to cook and were always finding out of the way places with interesting restaurants, rural food auctions, unusual grocery stores, etc. We both have friends and family that are somehow tied to food and agriculture.
And then, a number of friends started talking about how they were entertaining at home, cooking at home, and were hungry for new ways to spice up their cooking.
So...spices. And that led to us both looking around and realizing that we just wanted to make stuff that we enjoyed eating ourselves. So far, it seems to be working!
What a wonderful story! Aren't you agree with me?
Off course and don't forget to look at this!
