Follow me on:


I can answer questions about starting, maintaining and marketing art and fashion related businesses for both e-commerce and brick-n-mortar retail situations. I can also cover selling your work on eBay, having an eBay store, promoting through blogs and social networking, as well as building your own retail website or portfolio.

Experience in the area

I made costumes since I was little, started selling them on eBay 8 years ago, grew to an eBay store, created my own retail website in 2005, then opened my first storefront location in 2009. I started the business with one costume and now sell my own line plus many other brands in my store.
