While in Florida, I got to meet someone I have been DYING to meet, Eric Ducharme AKA The Mertailor. Eric made my first ever mermaid tail almost 5 years ago and I have been such a huge fan!
Mermaid tails have become very popular now, but Eric was the original mermaid tail maker. He's been making tails since he was a kid! This wall was filled with all of his first mermaid tail creations.
All of Eric's tails are made in the USA. When I asked him why he didn't utilize cheaper production overseas, he said that he wanted to give back to his city and his country and keep all production in the states. Being an entrepreneur myself, I know how hard it can be to do the "right" thing over the "cheaper" option. I so admire Eric for this!
Eric offers tails ranging from $100-$3000, so there is truly an option for any budget! Check out our full interview right here:
