Hidden Gems…Ricks Chicks Boutique!!

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!!


About Black Raven Creations

I love to create things and am one of those people who has to keep my hands busy. I have always been this way. If I am not "creating" in some form I tend to get depressed and blue. I spent many hours at my Grandmother's knees learning how to china paint, knit, and crochet. My home is now filled with items I have created thanks to my Grandmother!! She was a great and loving teacher and I was an eager learner. I have not only filled my house with my creations, but I have filled other family members homes as well. My oldest son told me recently "no more", he will not accept another painting, quilt, or wall hanging of any sort...his walls are filled!! Since my friends and families homes are filled, I have acquired a large pile of finished products... I was encouraged for years to open an Etsy shop, So I finally did!! In my shop you will find my creations using a wide range of textiles all created and made by my hands lovingly taught by my Grandmothers hands. All items are 100% handmade!! There are paintings, hand-stitched items, knitted and crocheted items, sewn items and many more. I hope you enjoy investigating my shop and if you have any questions just ask me. I am looking foward to running my shop and getting to meet new and exciting people. I hope to be able to service this community for many years.
