Shoppers Paradise "Shop of the Week" Highlights!

Check Out Our Shop of the Week for 1/15/11~
Kiki's Vintage Shop On Shoppers Paradise BnR BnS

Here's our interview with this extraordinary person and about her life!

❤ What do you make/create?
I started out making beaded jewelry and also collecting vintage/antique jewelry. I enjoy saving vintage glass beads and findings and creating new pieces with them, giving broken pieces new life. I also love papercrafts!
My first shop was kikisvintagejewelry.etsy.com
it featured my handmade jewelry and antique/vintage pieces.
I soon needed to open a second shop for supplies and other crafts, so I moved the handmade jewelry and destash items to kikisvintage.etsy.com
❤ Tell me one thing about yourself that most of us don't know.
I grew up in San Francisco, and in the 1990s bought a small organic berry farm. This is where I fell in love with crows. They are very intelligent, social, and amusing creatures!
❤ Name the last 3 things you bought on Etsy.
My daughter is expecting her second child and is feeling a bit ill these days. I wanted to cheer her up with little gifts. The last three items purchased are for her:
*T-shirt that reads "Fierce" by MTheory
*A box of kitten/puppy valentines for my granddaughter to play with while her mommy naps, from JudySnow
*A cool pair of 'Peace Out' earrings from Lyden
 ❤ Best advice you ever received?
Life is an adventure do not be afraid of change. Advice from my late father who retired young and went on to own several small businesses.
❤ Do you smile often?
I always smile! (and we can vouch for that! Just visit her shop and see her lovely Avatar!)
❤ Where can you be found besides Etsy?
Spending time with my family! Online, I have a blog and a facebook fan page for my two Etsy shops:
