Welcome to “Found it On Etsy,” a weekly feature of an Etsy art shop by a local artist or crafter.
What is Etsy? Etsy is an online market for crafters and artists to gather, sell their original products, and purchase or sell supplies.Each week we will feature an artist or crafter from the Kendall County area. If you know of someone in Kendall County who would like to be featured, please email me at email@example.com.
This week features the shop Ace's Afghans n' Things from Yorkville.
Ace's Afghans n' Things sells crocheted blankets, plastic bag holders and kitchen dishcloths.
For those wondering what a plastic bag holder is, artist Jonna Peterson says you can put plastic bags in the top and pull them out from the bottom to help keep some clutter out of your kitchen.
Peterson's biography on Etsy says she learned to crochet in college and once she started "never stopped."
The story behind her shop is to take an old fashioned craft and make it new again.
