Meet Nicole from Chicago Fine Threads & Enter to Win a Free Zippered Case Set

Happy Friday all! Today I am excited to introduce you to Nicole Helsing from Chicago Fine Threads. Learn more about Nicole and her amazing products below, PLUS, find out how you can enter to win a fabulous woodland floral zippered case set.

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I founded Chicago Fine Threads in 2007 after choosing to depart the corporate world. Picking vegetables from our garden, inviting friends over for dinner parties and exploring new cities with my husband are things that bring me joy. My mantra is that we are all unique individuals, so celebrate your individuality through your creativity; personal style is lost when you look like everyone else.

Black Silk Pleated Clutch – $63

Tell us about what you sell on Etsy:
Chicago Fine Threads handbags has two shops on Etsy. Chicago Fine Threads Luxe handbags focus on special occasion, wedding and one-of-a-kind clutch purses. Chicago Fine Threads Studio encompass’ the everyday sporty handbag because every woman likes to look great for their next adventure.

What is your favorite thing about creating?
Creating a new style of handbag from an idea rewards me with pride and happiness. Seeing the idea come to reality a completed design, makes me super excited to share it with fashion conscious women everywhere.

Where do you find your inspiration?
I love to travel. Traveling removes me from my comfort zone and everyday elements. You open yourself to new ideas, new visions and new connections. Whether hiking or sitting at a café people watching, the colors and textures of my surroundings inspire my next designs.

Cream Chocolate Clutch – $50

Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other handmade sellers?
Chicago Fine Threads handbags opened its first shop on Etsy in 2008. Consistency is key. All your photos should be clear, crisp, no distracting backgrounds. Shoppers have a short attention span so keep your descriptions informative without being too wordy. Join a local Etsy group through the forums. I use Etsy as a marketing tool everywhere I go. It is a place where you can showcase your items in an easy to understand format. Many of my sales come from local people I interact with regularly that see my designs in the two Chicago Fine Threads shops. They love that I personally deliver their handbags.

Gotta Love Giveaways!

Normally I wouldn’t consider myself the luckiest person on the planet. But lately, I think my luck has been changing in regards to some awesome blog giveaways I’ve been winning! Just recently I’ve won this fabulous photobook from mysistershopechest. I’m not sure exactly what images I want to put in it, or if I’m going to keep it to myself or offer it as a present to someone else, but I think it’s super adorable!

I’m also astonished that I’ve won this FABULOUS fashion plate from ArtByJacy. Isn’t it pretty? Winning two giveaways so close to one another, talk about a big surprise!

So even if you think you’re unlucky and have a why-even-bother attitude, I say, why not? What have you possibly got to lose?
