Check Out: Sandritocat

Sandritocat's Original Vintage Sewing Patterns has been open for business on Etsy since December 2007, I recently asked owner Sandra a few questions and here's what she had to say:

Q: How did you start selling patterns?
A: I collected "graphics" on vintage patterns then I came into a large amount of patterns and decided to sell them.

Q: What's your favorite item in your shop, right now and why?
A: This fabric reminds me of fabric my Mom used to sew my clothes from.

Q: Recommend something *different* a crafter could use your supplies for.
A: I've used some of the patterns envelopes and patterns pieces in collages. Only if they are missing so many pieces, no one could sew from the pattern.

Q: Do you have a frequent buyer program? or offer bulk pricing?
A: I usually do something special for my 100th, 200th .... sale. I just recently gave 50% to my 500th customer. I also offer combined and free shipping:
