Etsy feature: Sadie Olive

March 9, 2011

I came across Etsy in the wee hours of the morning when my girls were babies.  To keep myself awake while I would wait for them to feed, I’d search for the latest baby gadget or whatever I was interested in at the moment.  I would balance one baby on my lap with one arm, rock the other in a cradle with my foot and with my free arm (or “the mouse hand” as we like to call it in our house) I would browse the pages of Etsy.  That was about five years ago now.  I often wonder how much time I’ve given to Mr. Etsy or maybe I shouldn’t… There are about 300 000 shops to browse through and over 2 million people visit each month. And Sara Duckett’s shop, Sadie Olive, is a shop that stands out in that crowd.

Sara started up Sadie Olive to sell off her handpicked treasures when they started to pile up in her online boutique, similar to the reason why we started up our shop…although you would have to replace the word boutique with basement.  Besides her Etsy shop, Sara wears a few other hats as well.  As you can see, she is a fine photographer which is initially what drew me to her shop in the first place.  Her photographs are soft and dreamy, just really stunning.  Don’t you think?  Her photography can be purchased as notecards, postcards and prints in her shop called Warm Whispers.  She has some pretty charms available as well.

I mentioned that she has an online boutique which is filled with many more finds for the home.  She also offers design services or web and print.   And last but not least, she has a very lovely blog.  She is certainly someone to aspire to. Don’t you think?

It’s interesting to me to learn where other vintage shop owners live as it reflects the finds in their shop.  What was going on in the world at that time in that place will give you the treasures you find today.  Of course, personal taste has an impact as well.  And Sara’s shop is full of pretty antiques that have many stories to tell.

The Etsy Blog featured Sara’s home and I’d like to share it with you too.  It shouldn’t be a surprise that her home is as lovely as her shop.

There are more photos of Sara’s home on The Etsy Blog as well as Sadie Olive, please stop by to have a look.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
