Tina Produce Giveaway and Review

I've been admiring Tina Produce for some time now
and was so excited when I heard back from Kristina about sponsoring a giveaway and review!

Tina Produce represents California to a T.
Fresh produce, forward thinking, and modern design.

I feel like I'm at the farmer's market every time I visit Tina's shop.
Come to find out, Tina worked at one while taking an immersive screenprinting class!

She sent me this vibrant, smile-inducing handmade towel just the other day and my kitchen was instantly brighter. It's easy to see why it's her best seller.


Tina's towels are 100% cotton, which means not only are they soft, but also absorbent.

We are definitely fans of blueberries, probably the kids' favorite.
I'd love to get ahold of this design, or the strawberry, raspberry and blackberry assortment,
in a set of napkins.



These designs are also available on adorable little onesies and kids t shirts (below).

Let's meet the talented maker of these fine handmade goods.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself
A: Originally from Minnesota, I've lived in Oakland, California for over 6 years and in the Bay Area almost 14 years. I've had my business, Tina Produce, for four years now. I love the flexibility of having my own schedule, but it can get isolating and it's been a challenge to constantly be self-motivated and propelling yourself in so many directions. I'm now looking for new collaborative opportunities so that I can keep the business fun and light.




Q: Sounds like you left a career to pursue selling your wares. When did you know it was time
A: I left my office job before I really knew what I was going to do. I wouldn't recommend this, but that's how it worked for me. I had worked at the same office with the same eight people for six years and I knew that I needed to work using my creative skills. So, I lived incredibly frugally while taking a slew of visual arts courses at the local community college and slowly received some freelance design work and started my Etsy shop.

Q: Any advice for upcoming Etsy sellers?
A: Take great photos! I can't emphasize this enough. Keep all the backgrounds consistent so your shop has a cohesive aesthetic. Usually white or gray backgrounds get chosen for treasuries and features (so they look pleasing and cohesive with other vendors' items). The more you do this, the better your chance of getting picked for a treasury or blog feature, and in turn, a cover spot.

Q: Any new prints in the works?
A: I have an artichoke and asparagus design in the works, but who knows how long it will take to execute!





I can't wait to see the new design, Tina! And I agree, photos are key, and yours are phenomenal!
