Introducing Nick and Kimber of Little Sapling Toys

I am delighted to introduce you to Nick and Kimber Christensen from Little Sapling Toys, the best selling toy shop on Etsy! I fell in love with their shop the moment I laid eyes upon their adorable     

natural Owl Teething Toy - wooden teether for infants and toddlers

Little Sapling Toys offer wood teethers, organic blocks, Montessori toys, safe infant and toddler toys, a modern rocking horse, traditional rattles and so more. Better yet, they are eco friendly AND they plant a tree for every toy sold!

Recently Kimber took the time to tell us a little about her shop and business on Etsy:

Q: What is the most popular item in your shop?
A: Wood teethers! We have close to 100 different styles to choose from. Babies and parents love them and they go over very well at baby showers.

Q: What is the best business decision you ever made?
A:  There were geometric and organic shaped wood teethers available in a couple Etsy shops and around the web (we carried a square). I sketched out a bird, hedgehog, elephant, squirrel, owl and whale for Nick to cut out and our selection of shapes have been a big hit ever since. 

Q: Worst?
 A: I get great business ideas and get carried away with them too quickly. I'll even start to purchase supplies for this new business that doesn't exist. I need to continually remind myself that I have a successful business that requires all of my time and effort. 

Q: What advice do you have for new sellers on Etsy?
A: Put time and effort into a desirable and cohesive product line with professional pictures and descriptions.

Q: Just for fun, what is your favorite shop on Etsy?
A: We moved our family and business to Sheboygan, WI this month and have become good friends with Mike and Sally from Night Owl Craft Works ( Their beautiful pottery is of the highest quality, from clay to process to the glaze they make themselves.
Thanks Kimber, great advice!
