CraftSanity Podcast Episode 117: A conversation with printmaker and artgoodies owner Lisa Price

At long last I bring you a podcast interview with Lisa Price, a crafty printmaker and one of West Michigan’s most successful handmade businesswomen.

Tune in for the story of how Lisa used job loss as a springboard to start artgoodies, the art business she operates out of her basement studio in Grand Rapids.

Her business is the perfect blend of art and craft with a side of vintage flair. Her block printed tea towels are wildly popular and especially appealing for those who want to adorn their homes with functional art.

She also sells her lovely prints of ice cream cones, cupcakes, lobsters, butterflies, birds and more on aprons, stuffies and ornaments. Head on over to her shop to check out her work.

Also be sure to check out Lisa’s vintagegoodies shop, too. There you can shop the estate sale finds to stock her vintage closet.

Lisa worked hard to build her business and her story is a wonderful example of what’s possible if you trust your gut and just go for it. (Thanks for the inspiration, Lisa!)

Which leads me to my question for you, dear reader. What leap of faith do you want to take? What’s holding you back? Mull this question over privately, or post a comment below if you’d like to share your dream publicly.

This was a great episode! I loved hearing Lisa’s story, and at times felt she was talking directly to me (you know, like a good sermon or special song) when she talked about finding your passion and not trying to copy other people.

I know both of your grandmas are beaming with pride! Thanks!

I really enjoyed this interview. I listened to it while taking a walk through the summer evening light and had a wonderful time. I think the fact that the two of you really click was part of what made it so enjoyable. That and Lisa’s down to earth attitude.
