I’m excited for today’s Small Shop Spotlight, featuring Follow Your Arrow Clothing! This shop features handmade tees for you and your little ones, and I couldn’t wait to have this Q & A with its owner.
1. Tell me a little bit about yourself (family, interests, hobbies, etc).
Hey everyone!! I am Katie, owner of follow your arrow clothing.
I have been married to my husband for 7 years and we have 2 wonderful kids who keep us so busy. When we aren’t at soccer, baseball or basketball games we love family movie night!
2. When did you open your shop and how has the experience been so far?
I opened my etsy shop in July of this year. It took months of preparation and getting it ready but I officially opened the shop in July and its been a wonderful 5 months!
Follow your arrow is one of my favorite sayings… it means follow your path, follow the direction you are meant to go. I knew this is what I was meant to do. I love being creative and designing the shirts. I am so excited right now with the holidays coming up and making all the holiday tees!
4. Do you have a favorite design? If so, what makes it so special to you?
I don’t have a favorite design but my most popular would be my on saturdays we tailgate! I am very excited about my holiday tees though. I would say those are my favorite right now. I love the holidays!
What I love about being a small shop owner is how I do everything myself. I design and make each shirt myself. I package and wrap each and write a thank you note! When you shop small you are supporting a family.
6. What is one piece of advice you’d give someone who is looking to start their own business?
My best advice to anyone wanting to start their own business is just know you will make mistakes. I made so many when I first started but I learned what worked and what didn’t. Its all a learning experience. I also think getting advice from other shop owners has been great. I have made lots of new friends from other small business owners.
I just love supporting small businesses and getting to know the owners. Don’t you?! 😄
