Still on my zipper kick

Love how this one turned out. Popular color combo of black and turquoise and I think a versatile style, size, and pattern that could work well for casual or career. I'm still way too excited about zippers and really do think they give my bags some added value. Apparently though, not too many customers think so since I'm still not seeing the traffic in my shop that I used to. Damn this crappy economy!

On a related note, my friend Lena came over today and I did some wheeling and dealing that convinced her to buy two bags instead of one. I got to thinking about Ebay's "best offer" option and wished Etsy had something similar. So, I'm making my own "best offer" option just for my blog readers. Only valid on items in my sale section and accepted or not accepted at my discretion. So, check out my sale items, convo me an offer, and I'll respond with a simple yes or no. Don't worry about offending me with a low ball offer. I'm the queen of bargains and coupons so I know everyone wants a good deal. Just don't expect me to give the stuff away:)

Ok, see that paragraph up there ^. I was just reading it to Crafty Papa for his feedback and he freakin fell asleep! It's only like 8 sentences. How did that even give him enough time to doze off?! And who could be bored enough by a potentially awesome bargain to actually fall asleep?

I love that style bag-it looks different than anything you've made before. Crafty Papa sounds much like my hubby. I love my new bag by the way!

If it makes you feel better, my experience has shown that internet sales in general slow down in the summer--so combined with the slow economy, it makes for a slow selling summer. People are traveling, spending more time outside and less time at their computers shopping online. Good luck with your sale and I hope business picks up for you soon!

Business does seem sluggish, especially in the last week or so. I think that summer combined with the economy, is slowing things down. Hopefully things pick up, eh?

Cute purse! I love the black with turquoise accents!
