#Help4Joplin- Gussy Sews

Welcome to the Help for Joplin Auction. For details on the who, what, when, and how please visit this post.

This hours item is:

Helloooo! My name is Gussy, and I sew ruffles and share my adventures of having a handmade biz on my blog. I live in Minneapolis with my husband Zack and puppy Bauer. A couple years ago my husband and I were living near Detroit. We had recently moved there and I was looking for a creative way to spend my evenings. I decided to teach myself how to sew with the help of many library books. Shortly after moving to Detroit, we BOTH lost our jobs, and about 7 months later we moved to Minneapolis, which is where we currently live. My business is my passion. I love that I’m able to share our story of unemployment, my story of an indie biz owner, and YOUR story of handmade goodness. I love to support other handmade shop owners… it’s a true delight :]

Inside my shop you’ll find colorful, ruffled accessories: tote, laptop and market tote bags, zipped pouches, make-up bags, wristlets, headbands — even eReader cases. Visit my shop and get Ruffle-licious with our products! xoxo Gussy.

Retail Value: $25

Bidding starts at $10 and increase by increments of $1. Your comment is your bid, please state how much you are bidding in the comment. If you are the first comment it must be at least $10.
