Hoops for the People + Hula hoop Giveaway

Meet Brittini of Hoops for the People 


      Just a small town girl living in a dizzy world! I love camping, hiking, skiing, kayaking, and reading. A few of my favorite authors are George Martin, Robert Jordan, and Brandon Sanderson. I love to travel and I am always planning for my next adventure.





What inspired you to start hula hooping?
      One of my friends brought her hoop to a small local show. She had only been hooping a few months but she already had such flow and grace, I was instantly hooked. I couldn't even keep the hoop going around my waist when I started. Every new trick was a challenge and I loved learning. The community surrounding hooping is really what inspired me to keep hula hooping. Hoopers love to jam together and I have met some of my best friends while hooping. 

What was it that made you take that extra step into creating your own supplies?
      I started making hoops as soon as I outgrew my first 160 PSI hoop. I wanted a smaller hoop and some mini hoops but I didn't want to drop $50 on another hoop. I started selling and trading my hoops at festivals, and I gave many of my first hoops away for free to friends. I started my Etsy store about 7 months after I initially started making hoops, and when I look at where I started I am proud of what I have accomplished. 



How long have you been hooping and making hoops?
Two years

Explain your shop name. 
Hoops for the People- give my people hula hoops! Spinning creates a natural euphoria, and I think everyone would be a little happier if they played with a hula hoop every day. 

What's your favorite genre of music to hoop to?
Is Wookiefoot a genre? Without a doubt my all-time favorite music.

What material tubing is your favorite to work with? Dance with?
Polypro!! So light and responsive.

  8. I hula hooped in elementary school. But I've been looking into it as exercise after reading about it on "Oh Rocky!"

    I'm curious and would love to find out more.
