Seller Profile – Lil Miss Wednesday

Julia Thompson

Etsy shop name
Lil Miss Wednesday

Please describe your product range.
Alternative home decor bits and bobs, with a focus on all things gothic and geeky – cushion covers, lampshades, make-up bags, lanterns and a few special Christmas pieces. Think skulls. Lots of skulls everywhere.

I started an Etsy shop because…
I have a constant need to feel like I am doing something productive; on my first maternity leave in 2014 I found it very difficult to sit still when my son napped, so started sewing again after many years away from the machine. We’d just moved into our first house a year before and I was struggling to find any alternative/gothic things for it that didn’t have to be shipped from the US. I also wanted to try to build something up that I could potentially do from home in the long run that might fit around family life.

I feel inspired by…
The people around me. I have some amazingly crafty friends who create all kinds of awesome designs/visuals/noise.

When I’m working on Etsy, I like to listen to…
Rammstein. Not everyone’s idea of relaxing, crafty music but my favourite band in the world so I will blast them out every time I get the house to myself!
