Vendor Interview: Kneehighs n Pigtails
Who are you and what do you do?
Hi! My name is Camille Anne and I am the owner of Kneehighs n Pigtails. I create vintage style jewelry and generally spend my time surrounded by beads and sparkly bits.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
I think I’ve always been busy creating.. My grandparents had a ceramic shop and there was always something going on there.. I also had an amazing art teacher that would pretty much teach me anything I wanted to learn. When I was little I made jewelry from Kitty O’s and yarn. Not a very successful endeavor…
What do you love most about craft show vending?
I love the people. I have many lovely customers who come visit me at events. It’s always fun how many people are wearing jewelry they’ve purchased at prior shows. Makes me happy that they love what I do.
How did you get started in your business?
I had beaded a bit in high school and years later I rediscovered my case of beads. It was all over once I stepped back into a bead store.. It quickly got to the point where if I was going to continue creating I needed to start selling. Here I happily am close to ten years later.
