A bit about my product range
Mrs Pretty’s world of thoughtful folk are created by me Eleanor Pretty in my little attic studio in the Derbyshire Dales. Each of my creations are unique and are magical mixtures of old, new, recycled, organic and natural materials. My Christmas range includes my Christmas Fairy Tree Toppers, Woodland Gent hanging decorations and my magical Christmas boxes. They make lovely gifts for someone special or a lovely treat for your home.

I started an Etsy shop because…
I love to be creative, and have been stitching and crafting since I was a child. I studied Textiles at University and from then I knew I wanted to start a creative business. It took some time and I finally took the step and opened my Etsy shop last year, making my decorative dolls and creatures.

I feel inspired by…
I am very inspired by folklore and fairy-tales and have a big collection of old story books. I love the traditional stories, sayings and beliefs that have been passed down through the years, often using them as inspiration for my work.
I also love nature and find it very inspiring, I like nothing better than taking myself off for a walk with the dog, often returning with a basket of finds to use in my work and a head full of ideas.

When I’m making, I like to listen to…
I love music and have to always have something on. As to what it depends on my mood, anything from Kate Bush to Marilyn Manson.

My favourite product to make is…
It has to be my Fairies, I love creating them, from their hair to their outfits. They are all unique and have different personalities.

My plans for the future are…
My business is still fairly new, but I would like to grow it in the future. I would like to expand my range and plan to bring out a toy range in the New Year.
