floresdelsur located in Montevideo, Uruguay.
I love the unique textures her of each of her felt, fabric, and ribbon options, and I picture my girls so loving each of her creations. They are so lovely to wear in your hair or as an embellishment on a jacket. And with free shipping from Uruguay, what's not to love?
I had a chance to catch up with Marissa this last week and ask her a few questions. So grab a cup of tea or coffee, and read on about our conversation below.
How did you get your start on Etsy?
I read of Etsy somewhere on the internet in 2007 and I fell immediately in love with it, but it took me some time to get the courage to open my own shop.
We were going to be some friends selling in that shop, so I thought of "Las Flores" (the flowers) as a nice name for us as a group... we, all beautiful women, like flowers :)...
I lived in Patagonia when I thought of that name, that´s why I chose "del Sur" (from the south)
Las Flores del Sur means, complete, Flowers from the South.
Now I live in Montevideo, Uruguay... and it is still south... america! So the name still works for me ;)
If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?
Hm, difficult question! I can think of Venice -where I have already been- and it is so beautiful and unique that I would love to go back sometime soon.
