The Basics! Name: Betsy Age: 18 Location: London, Ohio Etsy shop: http://www.rayvenstar.etsy.com The Nitty Gritty: -Can you tell us the meaning behind your Etsy shop name? The name, believe it or not, comes from the name of a character in a vampire fiction I was working on. Sadly, I lost my train of thought on it and it's currently in my documents folder gathering dust, lol. It is an actual nickname for me from some of my friends, but they've since shortened it to Rayven.
