Christmas Sale Interview: Do Bats Eat Cats?

FeatureAbby MightComment

Nearly halfway through the Multi-Vendor Geeky Christmas Sale! There's still plenty of time to take advantage of the sales, but I advise you to buy sooner if you can to stay ahead of the rush! Use code XMAS16 at 30+ shops. See the link above for details.


The shop:
Do Bats Eat Cats?
Chicago, IL USA
Ships internationally
20% off your purchase
Instagram: @dobatseatcats_chainmaille

In 1-2 sentences, how would you describe your shop?
I make gothic, geeky, and fandom-inspired chainmaille jewelry (and also "normal" chainmaille jewelry for folks who might not be into skulls or TARDISes!). All my pieces are handwoven, one ring at a time, from made-in-the-USA aluminum rings.

How did you come up with your shop name?
It is from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Alice asks it as she's falling down the rabbit hole. Which seems an apt enough metaphor for starting a business!

Okay, so you're crafting. What do you have playing in the background?
Netflix of some sort. Usually binge watching a TV series. There are entire shows that I don't even bother getting into, because it seems to me that one would need to actually WATCH it and pay attention. ...Instead of listening while linking many little metal rings together!

What's your go-to snack to munch on while you work?
I try not to eat when I'm mailling because no one wants crumbs in their jewelry! I'd be lying if I said I didn't occasionally have a glass of wine nearby though. :)

What's your favorite way to relax and unwind after a stressful day of work?
Putting on PJs and curling up with a trashy novel. Preferably involving zombies, or an otherwise post-apocalyptic world.
