My sister and I opened our Etsy store over 2 years ago: Florés Boticario, a handmade natural skincare line. We created our company/products in memory of our great grandmother, a holistic healer in our native country of Peru. Our luxurious skincare line are for those who appreciate a delicate and natural skincare regimen. Each product is made-to-order with high quality essential oils.
What does Florés Boticario mean?
Florés means “flowers” and “Boticario” means “apothecary” in Spanish.
Why did you join the T.E.S.T team?
We joined The Toronto Etsy Street Team because we wanted to band together with our fellow Etsy makers for marketing and business support/inspiration/collaboration. We believe that teams win and appreciate all the expertise and experience that each individual in the group possesses. We’re all paving our own path and navigating through uncharted waters and it’s a breath of fresh air to know that we’re not alone.
We love the tools and support that Etsy provides shop-makers in order to succeed – from the Etsy Seller Handbook, Etsy Success emails, wholesale opportunities, Holiday 101, Etsy teams, to the Etsy Up Conference in NYC and everything in between. We’re so thankful to be part of the Etsy community.
You mentioned the Etsy Up Conference in NYC, did you go?
Yes my sister and I did go to the conference. It was a motivating and kick a** 3 days in one of my favourite cities. The guest speakers were incredible (especially Nely Galán) and I found the workshops very helpful. The swag bag was the icing on the cake!
What’s new and exciting?
We’re counting down to the Holiday Market at Shops at Don Mills. We will be there Friday December 9th – Sunday December 11th. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
