Kneehighs N Pigtails
Congratulations, Chelsie! Come to UCU on Saturday or Sunday for your $50 shopping spree to Kneehighs N Pigtails!
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Camille Anne and I spend my time surrounded by beads and bits of metal. A lot of the time I’m busy creating but I also am constantly on the hunt for new & vintage treasures to use in my jewelry! I like fuzzy socks, Coca Cola and most things antique 🙂
How did you get started in your business?
Like a lot of people who live in the craft world my hobby grew just too big to be “just” a hobby. A shoebox of beads turned into three, then five and the next thing I knew they had their own room… Something had to done! Fortunately I wasn’t the only one who like what I was doing and here we are almost 8 years later. Best thing is I still love what I doing!
Is this a full-time business for you?
It’s not sadly! I tried that for a bit and after being a waitress for 17 years I am too much of a social person to be home alone all the time. I talked to myself way too much and I was a little bored. Luckily I do dearly love my day job too! I’m lucky enough to work at a bead store where I am surrounded not only beads but lots of awesome and amazingly crafty people all day everyday!
Who’s your biggest fan?
Oh! I don’t know who that would be! Over the years I have met so many wonderful people! It’s one of the best parts of my business! I am very grateful for all of my lovely customers!
(Hey Lizzie! I know you are my #1 fan! :))
What do your customers love most about your products?
That would most likely be the quality they get for the price. Every since I’ve started my business I’ve invested many hours (days, weeks, etc) sourcing my materials with both quality and price high on the list. My motivation has always been to produce well made, beautiful, and affordable adornments.
