A Sweet January Giveaway with Sugar Plum Robots

SugarPlum Robots // Etsy // 

In December, I introduced you to SugarPlum Robots and she was sweet enough to donate some goodies for a giveaway!!!

I love how inventive her products are! they allow you to wear her handmade items throughout the year, with interchangeable items.  Get it out, scope out her store and then get entered to win!

How did you get your store started?
I was already familiar with a button maker because I worked at a independent print shop for 5 years and we did buttons on the side.  That business went under and I eventually started working at a factory....not really my thing!  I was cruising on ebay and saw this person making jewelry out of button medallions and I thought that looked like fun.  I didn't realize all of the possibilities there was with a 1 inch and 2.25 inch button machines.  Now 3 years later...my store is one of the biggest button/accessories stores online!!

What inspires you?
all things vintage, old and odd!  I have a "dark,odd,spooky" shop section that has 200 items in it.  The other 700 items are all vintage/retro fun, cute but still unique items.

How long have you been open and what is some of your favorite items?
I've had a ebay store for a few years. I just started this etsy store 7 months ago....I've had other etsy accounts but shhhh we can't talk about that:)  I'm always really into what I'm doing at the moment...I just did these sets of vintage figurines on fun background buttons...I tried to do the same thing with vintage halloween figures but it didn't have the same appeal.  I also just did a vintage camper/rv/airstream set, that was a lot of fun.  Honestly a lot of my favorite items are NOT even listed on my online stores because of copyright issues.  I vend locally and sell 1,000 of comic, cartoon, novelty, movie, music and just down right COOL stuff!!

what celebrity would you most like to wear/indorse/use your items?
Elvira, Deborah Harry, Punky Brewster (when she was young), Siouxsie Sue, Depeche Mode band members, Elizabeth Fraser...I admire MANY movie directors but because of there age and style I do not think they would wear my pins (or jewelry:)

if you had to use only one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
