I definitely missed the purse era. When I found you you were already selling purse hardware etc...

Thanks for the story-I came after the purse era, I guess. Glad you are doing what you are doing, now! As an accountant-it gives he hope!!!!

wow.... who knew???

Deb

For reals? I had no idea. Can't wait to hear the rest of the story...

Grandma G

Cool! Well, except the part about the fingers. OUCH!!

Carrie S.

I totally remember your purse days! And I even had a customer who had one of your bags! I'm so glad you are blogging this, I can't wait for the next installment.

Just don't make us wait 4 months, k?

OOOUUUCCCHHH! I feel like barfing just reading about that!

Besides that, I wanted to say - what's wrong with dyeing your own canvas - it's what I do! AND, I also know how incredibly time consuming the whole process is, and why I'll never even try to get rich selling bags (BUT, i do truly enjoy making a few for some awesome customers!)

Loving the retrospective and can't wait to hear more - except I hope there are now more hand injuries (or eye injuries) both would make me barf!!!

How cute are you in that photo?! So cute!

I still use my purse with all the grosgrain. I get many compliments on it. I'm all nostalgic now. Sigh...

I have a Houston Bag that I purchased in 2003 or 2004. I love it still!

Kate K.

So fun to hear about the beginnings of your business! Sadly, I can relate to your injury story--mine is similar, but involved my thumb. The good news is that my thumb is now a great predictor of rain!

Is it lame that I kinda think the Houston bag would still sell well today? The scarf accessory thing is kindof cute. I'm just sayin'.

AND, you look 13 in this photo!

Oh my goodness! I already thought you were a totally cool lady - but that crazy story confirms it! Can't wait to hear the rest!!

Wow, cute purses!

Denise Camarena

Your story is pretty inspiring!! I actually want to start selling my own purses and have started screenprinting them myself too :) It's nice to hear of someone who actually made it!
