One lady in Missouri was making leather belts for babies and toddlers, to sell in her Etsy store.
She was about to go out for the evening, and needed gold earrings, but didn't have any that matched her style.
She had bought some gold leather which she didn't know what to do with. On a whim, she made some leather earrings!
She wore the earrings, and got many compliments. They were also very light and comfortable to wear. She started selling them... And they took off!
To make a long story short, her business grew so fast that it's now on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing businesses!
