Saturday Artisan: Bownanza Utah

Meet Jeanette, our Saturday Artisan!
Jeanette is the artist and shop owner of Bownanza Utah.

Tell us a bit about yourself and what arts/ crafts that you make?

I am a SAHM of 4 kids 8 and under. I started making hair clips for my daughter when she was 2 and love it! I like making creative clips called ribbon sculpture the best! I also have flowers, and headbands, and just started making bottlecap necklaces! I love to craft, and I love that I can help earn vacation money for my family while I am home taking care of the kids.

What is the story behind your shop name?  

I liked the spin on Bownanza, and when I googled it, it came up with a bow hunting website, so to set my shop name apart, I added the Utah, since I was living there at the time. Meanwhile I moved back to Arizona where I grew up, and now i am not sure what to do with the Utah part, but at least it can help me be found!

Who is your target market?

Most of my items are for baby to about age 10. But I do have some things targeted at women (amazing feather clips) and a few boy items (neckties and shoes)

Which part of creation process that you enjoy the most?

I like making new things.  there is something exciting about making it for the first time, and getting it right. I also like taking pictures of them, I think my kids make pretty cute models!

What is your best seller?

Everyone loves flower hair clips, and everyone loves Minnie mouse and princesses!

How does your day go in general?

I actually have a huge inventory and don't craft too often, usually only when I get an order, or have a show. I always make two of whatever i am making, so that I have extra! I spend most of my day taking care of my kiddos! (cleaning, shopping, playing, feeding, taxi etc)

What sets you aparts from your competitors?

Unique products! And great prices

What does handmade mean to you?

I make the majority of my items, particularly the ribbon sculpture items. Alot of care goes into making these, and I consider it art - it takes time, skill, sometimes burned fingers or redoes, and hopefully the customer will appreciate the care that goes into each product!
