We are excited to introduce you to Jenny and Sabrina, co-presidents of Etsy Dallas and longtime team members.
The Pig and The Peacock shop opened in 2008. The shop started as an outlet for the creative passions of Jenny and Sabrina, co-presidents of Etsy Dallas. Their shop name is in honor of their grandparents.
“Growing up, we spent our summers and holidays on our grandparents’ farm in Georgia,” Jenny said. “Our grandfather raised pigs and, to add some class to the place, our grandmother had peacocks. Some of our fondest memories are from those summers on the farm.”
They joined Etsy Dallas in 2009 hoping to learn from more experienced sellers. “We learned so much,” Jenny said. “We also found that we loved participating in the team.” Jenny and Sabrina soon took on charitable events for Etsy Dallas.
The sisters are passionate about helping young women become strong, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math. “This is why we picked Girls, Inc. for the Crafts for Crayons school supply drive and craft event,” Jenny said. In 2016, Crafts for Crayons raised over $5,000 in school supplies for Girls, Inc.
Jenny and Sabrina have hit the ground running as co-presidents this year. Etsy Dallas has come a long way in the eight years since they joined. “We are really excited to take it to a new level over the next eight years,” Jenny said.
