Each week, TEMPT Team will select an Etsy shop owner that has excelled in team expectations. By participating in discussion threads, curating team treasuries, and supporting each other with hearts, these shops have earned a moment in the spotlight!
This week we feature Lynn at Itchy Fingers Lynny on Etsy!
Itchy Fingers Lynny out of Bellerby, England, United Kingdom has a wonderful assortment of corn dollies and straw favors handmade by Lynn. Lynn’s love of crafting brought her to the Wensleydale Popup Gallery, where she began teaching Corn Dolly Workshops. She says on her profile,
“I produced a number of Corn Dollies and Straw Favours for the display and so I have finally taken the plunge and opened an Etsy shop!”
Above you will see a lovely Corn Dolly with lemon colored ribbon bows. Perfect for hanging in a window or glass door to add a traditional, rustic touch to your home. Great gift idea for Monther’s Day! Lynn says in her listing, “Corn Dollies were traditionally made from the last sheaf of the harvest and were traditionally used as part of the seasonal celebrations all around the world.”
Below, you will see a beautiful heart with dark red cotton ribbon bows and hanger. The rustic straw heart would make a wonderful house warming, wedding or Valentine’s Day gift. Lynn says in her listing, “Countryman’s favours were often given as a sign of love or good luck.”
In regards to TEMPT Team, Lynn said this:
Since being invited to join the Tempt Team I have seen my Shop activity rocket and although Corn Dollies are a very niche market so sales are slow I am very happy with the outcome so far and since I have quit the day job I look forward to adding new lines.
We look foward to seeing what else you come up with Lynn! Thank you for being such an active and valued member of TEMPT Team!
