We’ve already had two rounds of Shopkeeper Stories on the Savvy Shopkeeper podcast, but this round is a little different. In the next four episodes, I’ll be featuring incredible makers, shop owners, and e-commerce retailers who are members of the Shopkeepers Lab.
First up is Brittany, owner of Kalopsia Clay. As she recovered from COVID with an entire month of unpaid leave from her full-time job, Brittany needed something to do with her hands. So she started making clay earrings, selling them and hasn’t stopped since.
Brittany shared her vision for her growing business, her best advice for makers wanting to sell their art, and how being a member of the Shopkeepers Lab propelled her business forward in the last year.
