INTERVIEW
................................................................................
1. Please tell us a little about yourself and your Etsy shop.
Hello, it's nice to meet you! I'm Sadiie Addams a little loud devil
who lives with her boyfriend, grandma, her two canaries, dog and
two cats in a big house outside Prague, Czech Republic. I lived and
studied in Prague until 5 years ago when I moved back to my old
family house. I work my gears as a full-time designer at a web
developer agency. When I have some free time, I love to do crafting,
garden work, cooking or any manual work that can clean up my
thoughts and refresh my thinking.
Besides other hobbies I have always been interested in flea markets
finds, collecting old stuff, antiquities, design, old books and such.
I love to share my finds and treasuries and my Etsy shop is a
showcase of my finds, especially mod Czech design pieces,
which I would like to share with others. Czech design suffers
under Cinderella syndrome and my goal is to present its unknown
beauty. Apart from that I though that accompanying vintage finds
with some paper work and wreaths would be great idea.
 So, voila there it is, antik*et cetera.
2. What is your inspiration or passion for collecting your fabulous finds?
I was always surrounded by old treasuries, my parents are also avid
collectors, even my sister studies fine arts so I"d say it's carved deep
into my bones. I love vintage items and photographs, and enjoy all the
fun in a hunt on a misty, rainy muddy early morning in the local flea market.
3. How does your Graphic Design background assist in
photographing your Etsy items?
(Any good tips for visual communication and presentation.)
I do a lot of commercial photography at work, so I would say
my approach is to be a bit different from that. I like to crash the
composition, use less light than needed, keep the colors in darker
tones. I still seek the perfect style for me so I guess my advice
would be: be original, don't be afraid of using something else than
white background, give it a unexpected twist. And use stones!
I love stones and I try to hack them into almost every picture.
Their texture is always a good companion to the cold white porcelain.
4. Do you have any good tips for running an On-line/Etsy business?
Be polite and nice, spread karma and appreciate others work.
I might sound silly to you, but I don't care about the sales in the
1st place, I take my shop as a way how to make friends and get
 to know a lot of talented people from all around the globe.
5. What are your future goals for your Etsy shop?
My nearest goal for my shop would be better description texts.
They are not the mirror image of perfection :]. And a long term
one is more great finds and wreaths.
