Handmade Help

Do you make awesome things? Do you wish more people were buying your awesome things?  Or maybe you feel overwhelmed with the amount of information out there?  Where do you start?  Here. Start here, and start with a friend; me.

Prior to running West Coast Leslie Designs & the SHIFT Handmade Market, I worked in retail. For almost a decade I worked for several high-end retailers including Tommy Hilfiger, Roots, & LUSH Handmade Cosmetics, and I can help you sell your product without losing your integrity, your brand image, or your personality!

This lady is amazing!!!! She gave me such awesome tips for improving my booth display for markets. She taught me not to be afraid of white, drawing in the eye, importance of height, signage, and that you have really have to spell it out so people understand how to use your product. Since following her tips and suggestions, my booth looks amazing, I find people are being drawn into my booth because of the colours and layout, people are asking questions and showing genuine interest in my products and my sales have increased after following Leslie's advice. Thanks so much Leslie, you definitely have a talent for this.

Leslie was so friendly and approachable, and was able to speak from experience. She is able to sum up practical advice and ideas in a way that is accessible to those of us who aren't "business-y" and provided different perspectives I hadn't thought of. She gave me helpful pointers on sales pitches, and how to more effectively work a booth and sell my product.


I would recommend Leslie to anyone looking for direction or mentorship with their small handmade business; whether you are a total rookie, or perhaps looking to refresh and explore different avenues, or even need to bump up your social media game.  She is easy to talk to, approachable, and teaches in a way that is accessible to anyone, regardless of what level of experience you have or your small business background.
