I'm Starting a Shop!!

I was so excited about the interest in my scarves from my blog party giveaway that I'm going to start up a shop on !  Woohoo

Thanks so much to anyone who has supported and encourage this idea.

I'm pretty nervous about it. I've sewn for people before, but have never sold anything online.

I'm trying to come up with a shop name and every time I go to type it to register, I balk.

I need some help.  Here are my ideas...

Handmade With Heart
Made by Me
Ta-Da Designs
Thea's Things
Made 4 You by Thea
Made by Thea
Thea Designs
Thea's Creations
Created by Thea
Thea's Shop

Do you like any of those??
Do you have any other suggestions?

Please help, I'll be eternally grateful (Yes, just saw Toy Story 3 recently.)


  1. Yay!

    "Thea Designs" is my fave. Classy.

    How exciting!

  2. I like Creations by Thea, I know its not one of the options you listed but...

    Also, have you googled each name to make sure no one else has them? If you end up registering, filing for tax id numbers, etc., it needs to be unique.

  3. Hope this goes terrificly well for you! You have a really pretty name, so I'd suggest using that in which ever label you go for.

  4. I'd go with one of the names with your name in it. It's a lovely creative name and has a nice sound to it. Good on you. I'm so glad you are doing this. xx

  5. Wow - how exciting! Good on you. What about:

    Thea Good Life
    All Thea Best
    Sew Thea

    Mmmm... maybe it's a bit early in the morning for this. I'm sure you'll come up with something!

  6. It's so great you've decided to do this! I'm so excited for you!

    I like Thea Designs or Designs by Thea...

  7. I love Thea's Creations as a shop name.

  8. Hmm, I think they're all a little same-same, Sorry.

    I think you should be more adventurous. What about something like:


  9. I kinda like Thea's Things... but maybe you could pretty it up a bit by using 'Thea's Lovely Things', okay a bit boring still.

    What about ... (you can always leave your name off the start)
    Thea's Natty Knits
    Thea's Knit Knacks
    Thea's Scrumptious Scarves
    Thea's Woolly Warmers
    Thea's Woolly Gorgeous Knits (geddit, geddit??.... really gorgeous knits with a nice Aussie inflection)

    Not much help, sorry, good luck with it, it's exciting getting going!

  10. Made by Thea almost rhymes (ok so it doesn't but it's short and sweet)

  11. I once had a knitted scarf shop on ebay, I called it 'Jody's Knits' :)

    Good luck!

  12. Have you looked at etsy and (maybe) redbubble as well?

    I like "Scrumptious Scarves".

  13. I like Made by Thea and Thea's Things :)

  14. Congratulations! Your scarves are beautiful. I would go with something that has your name in it. "Designs by Thea" perhaps.

  15. Oh yay!!!! Good luck I'm sure you will be in high demand lovely xx

  16. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and suggestions!
    I registered on Made It today as
    "Sew Thea"
    Thank you 'sew' much to Allison for that excellent idea. xx

    I hope to be up and running next week.

    I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. :D

  17. Oh, Thea - I am SO happy for you! This is just great. Go you. Your scarves were gorgeous, and I bet it goes really, really well. :) x


Just one little comment will make my day.
