Made by Andi

Andi grew up spending lots of time in her mother’s antique store. This gave her a love of the past and an interest in collecting vintage. She started going to thrift stores at an early age hunting for clothes, and as soon as she was able to move out on her own, her apartment quickly became furnished with treasures she’d collect on her thrifting adventures.

Andi started designing bags while she was in art school achieving her Fine Arts degree. Shortly after graduating, she opened up her first online store on Etsy showcasing her one of a kind creations. This shop quickly became her full time job as her bags developed a following. An extensive amount of repeat customers coveted and collect her bags based on quality and style that she offers.

From her humble beginnings of selling bags in art school to now, the passion and excitement still resides. Now, nearly 6 years later, Andi is turning her passions to helping others learn to grown their own handmade businesses. Her latest passion Made By Andi, is her business blog – Here she shares with other handmade business owners tips and tricks that she’s learned along the way. She is incredibly passionate about teaching the extensive knowledge that she has learned and is dedicated in doing so through her blog. Visit her there at www.madebyandi.com.

When she’s not working in the studio or blogging, you can find her at thrift stores looking for old kitchen items and brass deer ornaments. She’s a bike rider, tea drinker, beet juice maker, and lover of old Hitchcock movies.
