I'm a proud member of THE OLD FARMHOUSE GATHERING TEAM ON ETSY... a talented, professional group of artisans who create everything from Primitive to Shabby Chic, with an old fashioned flair!

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
lucy43g a.k.a. The Farmer’s Attic. (Need to open a new shop with the name Farmer’s Attic!)
2. How long have you been on Etsy?

3. What type of items do you offer?
We have a variety of items from home décor, primitives, vintage, fabric, quilts, pincushions, holiday, seasonal, handbags, heirloom items, etc.
4. How long have you been crafting?
I think I have been crafting all of my life. I learned a lot of sewing at a very early age by watching a dear lady sew clothing and curtains while she babysat me over the summer months. I also taught myself to knit in the car after visiting and watching a relative in North Carolina. On the way home to New Jersey, I had two rattail combs and some yarn that she gave me and I learned to knit during the long car ride home. I think I was about 9 or 10 at the time (I’m now 51!)
5. Who or What inspires you?
Fabric, fabric, fabric. I love the textures, colors, feel and flow. Also, lots of magazines and books (I’m a book hog!) and now I have the internet!!!!!!!!!
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
I love my pincushions. There’s just something about them that make me happy. There is such a variety out there today and I want to have one of everything!!!
7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)
My webstore went live in September, 2009 and can be found at www.farmersattic.com. I don’t yet have an Ebay store but I do sell under my username: thefarmersattic. I’m also fairly new to the blogging world and I think I’m addicted, you can find me at www.farmersattic.blogspot.com
