In my series titled Hidden Gems, I would like to introduce you to Cate the owner of Ricks Chicks Boutique!!
Cate would you share with my readers a little bit about yourself and your Etsy shop.
I’m Cate Ricks, the owner of RicksChicksBoutique. I live in Greenville, North Carolina, just a few miles from East Carolina University. My shop currently features scarves, with plans on adding crocheted hair bows and headbands. I opened my shop after feedback I got from friends and family, as well as people I had sold scarves to locally.
What first got you interested in your craft…..
At first I was interested in ruffle scarves, I got excited and bought a bunch of yarn but to be honest it wasn’t really my thing. I was looking for something more my style to do with all the yarn I had bought and fell in love with crocheted infinity chain scarves! I then expanded to arm knit cowls and scarves, and discovered Dash (which is amazing) I’ve only been crocheting for a few months, so I’m always looking into new projects and am excited to expand my business. I want to make things that I want to wear.
Apart from creating things, what do you do…..
I play guitar in my church’s praise and worship team, and occasionally play and sing special music during the offering. I enjoy going to Walt Disney World, reading, and wasting time on Pinterest. I’m also a Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Sherlock, and Disney geek 🙂
Where can people find you on the internet…..
You can find Cate at:
On Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/RicksChicksBoutique as well as local craft shows. My products are featured on Pinterest (board: RicksChicksBoutique) and Wanelo.
I would like to thank Cate at Ricks Chicks Boutique for allowing me to share her shop and her creative mind!!
