Great quote from an Etsy seller in the Wholesale program:
What’s the one piece of advice you’d offer to those just starting out?
Get in over your head and work your butt off until you’re not in over your head anymore. It feels great to conquer more than you think is surmountable.
Winter Cabin Collection came together in 2012 when the owners of Wanderlust in Portland, Oregon asked artists Mary Kate McDevitt and Fred DiMeglio to create a holiday window display for their shop, melding their distinct artistic styles. They loved the resulting designs and began to brainstorm a full line of products inspired by their collaboration. Over the next few months they designed, sketched, made a business plan and formed the limited-edition Winter Cabin Collection.
What do you love most about your job?
We love being independent and being able to work hard at a craft that we find very rewarding. The process of working together to bring ideas to fruition is endlessly exciting!
What’s your favorite product you’ve ever created?
Our favorite product is the “Hunker Down with Me” banner. We always say hunker down when we settle in for the night, and we love to watch our cat, Peppy, when she hunkers down for a good nap.
