Interview, Review, and Giveaway...The World Famous on Etsy

Awesome new giveaway courtesy of The World Famous. We will get to that in a minute, but how about a few questions with owner Gen. She seems like an awesome chick with a rockstar vibe.

One of her sweet hats.


Interview:

1. What's your "day" job?

Being a superhero? No just kidding. Recent college grad on the hunt for a job. Nothing yet.

2. How long have you been knitting and how did you get into it to begin with?

I've been knitting for about 8 years and crocheting for 2 years.

3. What are five words you would use to describe your Etsy business?

We cater to the rockstar.

4. Anything else you would like to tell potential buyers?

Hmm... HI!

5. Most played song on your playlist?

Anything by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap


Review:
I was graciously sent two hats for the blog. One to review and the other for a giveaway. I chose to review the yellow slouchy beanie.



I have to say that wearing this around town brought me back a couple years to walking around on my college campus. I love the youthful feel of the hat and the bright yellow color is so uplifting!

I said in my last hat review that I often have a tough time with hats, because my hair is quite thick, but that wasn't a problem with this one. Awesome fit and I have to say, I definitely felt like a rockstar. Or maybe more of an indie acoustic star.


Where you can buy one: Right over at The World Famous on Etsy.

A note for The Man: The World Famous provided me with a hat for review and is offering this prize for promotional purposes. I am not getting paid for this promotion, but I was given the hat for free. While it was sweet that I got a free hat, the free nature of said hat did not influence my review of the product.
