experience and from speaking
with other shop owners, it's
hard to get out there and
really be noticed on Etsy. I've
researched other shops that
make similar products to
mine, and I've found a lot of
people who sell hair ties but
they're usually not decorated,
so I think it's a special idea
that not a lot of people know
Aside from Etsy, Cole said
that, as the weather turns
warmer, craft fairs will start
kicking up, and she wants to
get involved with selling at
some local shows.
As Hugga keeps growing,
Cole said, "Basically I'm just
working on continuing to
come up with new ideas.
Every day after work, I
research ideas and look at
supplies — it's essentially like a
second job. It's something that
I never thought I would love,
but it gives me something to
focus on, and it's relaxing to
put my mind to that one task.
"It makes my mind happy
to be creative, plus I have the
freedom to be my own boss
and choose what I want to do
and what I want to make."
Stephanie, who is a past
member of Temple Israel in
West Bloomfield, has made
some Jewish hair ties and
currently has a hamsa bead
hair tie in her shop.
Looking back on the
progress she's made so far
this year, Cole said, "I think
what's most surprising is
that things truly do fall into
place. This whole idea and
how it formed, I think, was
truly meant to be. Things
just happen and you should
embrace it, so I'm just going
with it and loving it."
