Etsy Featured Shop: Population One

Population One is the Etsy shop of Erica Dvorachek, a transplant to Seattle from Green Bay, Wisconsin. Erica has been crafting since she was young, starting out with craft time with her grandmother while her mother ran errands and her grandfather napped. She began selling her crafts later, however, starting with skirts at the Fremont Market in Seattle about 4 years ago. Now Erica sells a variety of shapes and sizes of purses, wallets, and other bags. She can still be found at the Fremont Market on Sundays, as well as selling on Etsy and Cut + Paste.

She says that one of her most popular sellers, as well as one of her favorite items to make, is the Katrina wristlet: "It's an original design that took me a really long time to finally get to the point where I was happy with it. It started out as a completely different idea and finally evolved into a wallet wristlet.... I haven't anything exactly like it anwhere else. That makes me really happy." No matter what sort of bag or wallet you need, there's a good chance that Erica will have something that fits the bill at Population One.
