We continue our chat from the last episode with designer Sally Ann. If Sally was in the Transformers universe she would be a Junkion. It’s a compliment! Stop thinking Michael Bay and think the very first animated movie. The Junkions are expert mechanics that can repair anything with spare parts and they love Earth broadcasting. Alright, nobody is getting this reference.
Sally Ann designs clothing & accessories using ONLY recycled fabric. She sells her wares at markets and festivals with the help of her mobile boutique. You can also find her items for sale online at shopsallyann.com.
Sally answers the tough questions, “Hey! How can I be successful on Etsy?” She says product photography, create your own traffic, streamline your product/price/labor and get a domain name to point to your store.
Sally’s friend does vintage jewelry, Cribbledy Goodness.
Sally is all about sustainability. If the fabric is smaller than the palm of her hand, maybe, maybe it can be thrown out. Aside from Sally, where can you get sustainable apparel? Try Threads 4 Thought.
Her guilty pleasure is Vampire Diaries because she can concentrate on work and not have to pay attention to the show.
Our guest self identifies as a Lord of the Rings nerd.
Chris & Sally critique True Blood.
Quiz Time!! Sally & Paul try to answer question about a Shatner film called Kingdom of Spiders. Who will win?
From tarantulas to bugs. Sally says the bugs are bigger in the South.
Sally’s favorite Doctor is David Tennant.
Chris recommends that Sally watch Firefly.
