I read a great post by Laura Serino about writing product descriptions. It was so lovely, it made me weep with joy. She is someone who cares about every thread in her story, even if she is writing about something as mundane as socks.
Laura works at eCommerce Fuel, an online community for e-commerce merchants. I have no idea if she takes on freelance projects. But I would heartily recommend her if you have an online store and you need gorgeous descriptions for your wares... particularly clothing and lifestyle items. I suspect she has a sincere interest in vintage or retro items, animals, cooking, home crafts, and outdoor sports. Her writing is charming, personable and alive.
