Tape Measure Watch

The watch band is repurposed from a vinyl measuring tape and closes securely with a silver colored snap. The band is adjustable by simply snapping into the next closure. The round watch face is a brand new Geneva quartz and stainless steel watch with a pearlized face.
Price: 20.00

1-Why did you choose to sell on Etsy/ and do you sell anywhere else?
I had Etsy in the back of my mind for a few years before I started selling online...when I was ready to make the move, it was the obvious choice. And I'm so happy that I made the jump! I still sell my work in person, at a few shows and wholesale to B&M boutiques and museum shops.

2- What is your fave thing to buy on Etsy (whether it be supplies or gifts etc.)
I love buying gifts on Etsy--they are always so unique and make a big impression on the recipient. In fact, this year I've bought most of my Christmas gifts here and I can't wait to hear all the "oohs" and "ahs" on Christmas morning!

3-What is your current fave product(not in your store) under 20$?
Right now I'm adoring these
recycled cufflinks from 2ReVert and just wishing I knew a guy who actually dresses up!

4- Any advice for new sellers?
Never stop trying to improve. I look back on my pictures and descriptions from when I started selling on Etsy and wonder why anyone even wanted to buy from me! You can always make things better so if you aren't selling, take a step back--redo your photos, evaluate your tags & sign up for Google Analytics. And listen to other people's advice! Sometimes they really do know what they are talking about and can even suggest new product ideas that you would never have dreamed of.

5-And a favorite quote?
"In the end, we are nothing more than smoke and memories...and maybe we might even become fairytales, someday."


  1. What great timing (pun intended)! My watch strap is breaking, so I'm in the market for something else. Excellent find.

  2. Hi Renee, I see you've joined my blog as a guest/ friend (I'm not crazy about the term 'follower').

    Hope I can make you feel at home.


    PS: The watch at top is pretty clever! :)
