After much encouragement from readers, I’m finally opening up an Etsy shop with my Mom. We will be selling our best vintage finds and favorite handmade goods. I’m pretty excited, but also really nervous. More details, plus a Dans le Townhouse coupon code and a fun giveaway (sponsored by yours truly) will come this week, I hope. But first, something truly important: what to name our mascot?
We found this little planter supposedly for the shop, but when I began photographing him he made the saddest eyes at my Mom, who was looking on. I saw this (with my Mom to the left):
Awwwww. In our silliness, we decided to keep him and make him our mascot, representative of the fact that we only sell stuff we love (and would love to keep).
So. Names? Our shop name starts with an “M” and is a Hungarian word + the Hungarian word for teddy bear is “maci” . . . so there’s gotta be a cute name in there somewhere.
