About Etta B & Co.

Hi there! I'm Brooklyn DeShea, the girl behind Etta B & Co. and sole operator of all things online. In 2015, I launched my first website (formerly known as DeShea's Online) at 17 years old. I was graduating high school that year and wanted to share my family's pottery in a new way. Looking back 8 years later, I am so thankful The Lord allowed this door to open. I didn't know soon after I turned 23 that I would test positive for Lyme Disease. Following treatment, I saw a rheumatologist and discovered I had Lupus, Sjogrens, and Fibromyalgia. In 2021, I faced a long duration of flare-ups and we were able to diagnose that my autoimmune is triggered from UVA and UVB rays, even from artificial lighting such as fluorescent. Knowing this, and with the serious conversations with my dermatologist, I made tough life changes that pulled me away from our family's hospital gift shop since the hospital lighting was increasing my symptoms. Etta B & Co. is now my full time job, and I am so thankful for this creative outlet that truly brings so much joy and keeps me going, even on the hardest days. Getting to work along side my family is honestly the best gift and I treasure it everyday!

I love establishing sweet friendships with my dear customers and always love helping you complete a table setting or find the piece you're looking for! When you shop online with Etta B & Co., not only are you shopping small, you're supporting a young girl's journey in life as she figures out life with autoimmunities. 

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for shopping small and for allowing me to share our handmade pottery from my family to yours.
