This journal entry will be boring because today was the most boring work day ever. All I did today was cold call sales reps for fabric samples. So starting next week my mailbox will be overrun with swatches, Capital One credit card applications, Bed Bath & Beyond 20% discount coupons, and Pottery Barn Christmas catalogs. I anticipate getting hundreds of swatches next week. There will probably be no air left in the mailbox, as if it was vacuum-sealed.
I’m making some good progress on fabric research so I should be able to close on this decision in a few days.
But then I need to think about sourcing other things like leather, zippers, lining, foam, shoulder straps, labels, metal fasteners and clasps.
