Name That Shop!

NaBloPoMo Day 13

So, the other day I mentioned that I'm going to be a famous jewelry artisan. Or something. Alyssa talked me into it. At any rate, I'm learning to make jewelry and setting up an etsy shop. Busy busy busy. I'll be selling stamped metal jewelry like this piece from Amazon:

This is all about my retirement. As in, I want to retire, but I also want to eat, have a home, and most importantly, buy shoes.

To that end, I have to do many important things such as come up with a name for my shop. Well, that and learn to make jewelry, but I have a book, so that part should be easy. Here's where you come in. I  need your help to come up with a name for my shop.

So I can retire...and buy shoes.

I started suggesting names, and Alyssa started shooting them down. You know how she is. First, I went with my favorite title, Grandma. I asked what she thought about Grandma's Jewels or maybe Jewelry by Grandma Meents.

She responded with, "I dunno...would I as a young mother want to shop at Grandma's Jewels? Let alone teenagers? Seems to narrow your clientele."

Okay. Nobody wants a narrow clientele. So how about Creations by Cynthia? Alyssa's response: "Eh. It's kind of boring."

So that's where we stand. If I can't come up with a name for my shop, I can't sell jewelry, and retire, and eat, and buy shoes.

So help me out here! What should I name my etsy shop? Now that I think of it, Cynthia's Shoe Retirement Fund sounds pretty good.
