Before My Site Was Born

Before My Site Was Born

    

Even though I have been playing with fire for over a decade, it wasn’t until 2017 that I finally decided to turn my hobby into a profession. Or did my hobby decide to turn into a profession itself, of that I am not entirely sure!   

It didn’t happen over a night of course. I had to retire my good old hot-head torch, and start picking up more professional equipment and more glass! Before I knew it, my attempt to make things 'small business like' took over half the house! One day it was a small desk in the corner of a room, the next thing I know, it was everywhere. But that is a subject for another blog post.   

Once I was happy with my creations, I needed a platform for showcasing and meeting my possible customers. I wasn’t feeling ready to make my own platform and that is where Etsy became a gateway to my venture. As I was already familiar with the site as a buyer, I made my first shop and first sale on the very same platform, in 2017 and my Etsy shop (NoccoNoccoo) has been active ever since.   

After 3 years of selling on Etsy and in-person in Greece, Nocco Nocco was finally ready to have its own platform. And, here we are!
