Southern Made Mugs started out in a kitchen in the small town of Duson, Louisiana (population 1,748) and is now a family operated business with it’s own office.  The shop has nearly 200 mug designs available or you can customize your own.  You will find everything from engagement & wedding mugs to parenting & funny/inappropriate mugs (my personal fave).  Looking for a gift?  Southern Made Mugs has you covered.  Right now they are running a buy 3 mugs, get the 4th free promotion.  The mugs are pretty, witty and fun, and are sure to get a lot of chuckles from family, friends, and coworkers.  Here’s what Alisabeth has to say about her shop.

How did your shop get started?
We actually have another shop on Etsy that has been thriving for almost two years. However, our mugs were never getting any attention due to the amount of items we currently offer in our other shop. As well, the style was just completely different, and we wanted to share both sides of ourselves with our customers. So, this is how we started Southern Made Mugs.

What inspires your designs?
We tend to follow seasons, current events, and styles of individuals that may not be our style. What we love may not be someone else’s love, so we like to combine the two into our items.

Favorite part of the business?
I love what I do, and I mean I LOVE what I do!! I have my accounting degree, and I love math. But I love interacting with customers so much more. It is also a huge plus that my kids have me at home. Getting to see them grow up makes everything worth while 🙂

Least favorite?
My least favorite part of the business is when LIFE happens. Unfortunately, in this year, we have had to go through the recent catastrophic Flood of Louisiana, and our son is actually having surgery today as I write this. Therefore, you will run across some customers that do not understand when LIFE happens, and they are not happy. While these may not be things that a shop owner can control or prevent, running a successful Etsy shop does mean never getting a day off.

What is your favorite item and/or bestseller?
My favorite item in the shop and my bestseller are actually two different items. This brings me back to different styles of each individual. My favorite item is the “Fleece Navidad” mug. I so love Christmas and humor! But, my bestseller right now are the “Nasty Woman, Bad Hombre” mugs. They have sold like crazy with the recent election.

Alisabeth sent this Can’t Touch This mug for me to review.  MC Hammer would be jealous.  I choose this mug for 3 reasons:
1.  90s rap is my jam.
2.  Cacti are prickly.
3.  Coffee/Hot Cocoa/Tea is hot.
Enough said.

The graphic is vibrant and printed on both sides of the mug, so everyone can see the humor no matter what hand you use for sipping.  The mug is made to withstand the dishwasher and the microwave.  That’s a requirement in my house.  This is my new favorite hot cocoa vessel.  Love.

Can't Touch This Mug $13.99
