Etsy Around the World: BabyLyons

The first crafter from our new feature "Etsy Around the World" is BabyLyons. She makes some really cute things for babies, but I bet you'd already guessed that from the shop name! Enjoy her interview... and if you've got any cuties in your own life, you might want to check out her blog too (hint, hint).

Who are you?
Katie Lyons, BabyLyons Designs

Where are you located?
Sutherlin, OR USA

What do you create?
I design onesies! It's so much fun!

Why did you choose your medium?
I recently had a beautiful baby boy, and noticed a lack of cute, stylish onesies at an affordable price. Plus I needed to find a way to make extra money so I can be a stay-at-home mom, thus the idea to design onesies was born!

Why did you choose your shop name?
That was easy! My last name is Lyons, and I'm designing onesies, so BabyLyons was just the obvious choice :)

Where do you create?
Mainly in my sons room. His toys help me think of new designs.

How do you acquire new clients?
I promote anywhere and everywhere! My main success has been CafeMom, I've met a lot of great women on there and gotten a few clients as well. It's been a lot of fun meeting new people.

What types of things do you do to turn first time buyers into repeat clients?
I always send a thank you note with their order to let them know how grateful I am for them choosing to buy from me. I also give them a coupon code, not only to get them to come back, but as another way to say thank you. And I always make sure my onesies are absolutely perfect before sending them out.
