Every once in a while I feel the need to share a shop/business with my readers. The one I’m sharing today really excites me because the owner was my childhood best friend, Lindsay. I asked Lindsay a little while back if I could share her super cool business with you all and thankfully she said yes! I decided to do it interview style, although I think that her pictures of the product will speak for themselves!
Tell us about yourself:
My name is Lindsay Sterling and I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Matt since 2009. We have one daughter, Everleigh, that will be 2 this month. We live in Brownstown, Indiana; a very small town in southern Indiana (it’s where my husband grew up).
How did you come to start Eleven Main Street?
I started Eleven Main Street in October 2012. I had started sewing some clothing for my daughter and decided to start an Etsy shop and sell some of my handmade items. With so many children’s clothing companies & Etsy shops out there, it didn’t quite take off like I had hoped. However, I had also made a birthday sign for my daughter’s 1st birthday that resembled a chalkboard, but was hand-painted, eliminating the risk of little fingers smudging it. A friend of mine asked me to make one for her daughter’s 1st birthday in October 2012, and a few weeks later I listed these signs in my Etsy shop and my inbox exploded with orders.
What does Eleven Main Street do?
Eleven Main Street currently creates custom signs for all occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, store front window, home decor, etc.)
What is your favorite EMS product?
My very favorite sign is the very first one I created for my daughter because it’s near and dear to my heart.
How can we find your shop?
I have an Etsy shop and also take orders via my facebook page. I ship anywhere in the US.
What is your favorite thing about having your own business?
I love being able to explore my creativity and contribute financially to my family, while giving my daughter the benefits of having a stay-at-home mom.
Am I right? The pictures speak for themselves! Now go over and show Lindsay some love and tell her I sent you 🙂 You’ll be happy you did!!
