Feature Friday with the Firecracker Kid



Carol and Tim are a great team!  Their wood working is out standing!  Carol is a great asset to the team--she is a real team cheer leader!  Here is an interview with Carol.  Make sure to check out their one of a kind creations!  They are having a giveaway so head on over to their blog and sign up.

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
Firecrackerkid Primitives. Well, I chose this name, because I was born on the 4th of July. My family always called me "firecracker kid". My father always told folks that when I was born I came out with a bang. Put that little fact, Independence Day, my love of primitives and my country, plus I don't think we ever grow up, and you get Firecracker Kid Primitives.

2. How long have you been on Etsy? Since March 30, 2008.

3. What type of items do you offer? A variety of small furniture. Our one-of-a-kind wood crafts such as rolling pin racks and rolling pin rack combinations for the kitchen. Also reproduction wood crafts like different Early American dough bowl racks, cabinets, shelves, and Primitive smalls.

4. How long have you been crafting? Twenty-five years.

5. Who or What inspires you? The love of all things Primitive, my e-friends, and my husband.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why? That would be our one-of-a-kind items. We like to come up with unique primitive wood crafts that are appealing to others, and that are functional in the home.

7. Other places where you can be found?
