Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar: Adrian Mix
(If you missed it yesterday, check out my interview with Briana Hefley-Shepard. Also, be sure to check out my story about Deluxe in The Oklahoman tomorrow.)
Today: Adrian Mix of Ponca City.
Q: Tell me about your company and what you make.
A: My little business is Fried Okra and I started selling online in 2007. I make quite a wide variety of things, most creative types can’t sit still long! By far my most popular item is the much loved Sock Monkey, my twist on the traditional favorite. In addition to Sock Monkeys I make patchwork bags, pincushions, coffee cuffs, pinback buttons, and a plush I’ve dubbed Sweater Mice (mice made from salvaged sweaters).
A: I love to make things, period. It’s like an itch you just have to scratch. I love to see people get excited, smile, make funny little squeaky noises when they see something new and creative. This is my goal in life!
