This weekend I stuck a bottle of juice in my purse and walked around not realizing that I hadn’t screwed the cap on tight enough. Fifteen minutes later when I reached into my bag to grab the bottle, I noticed that it was half empty. I opened my purse and was horrified to see a large puddle of juice at the bottom of my bag. I freaked out because because I had my new iPhone and headphones in there. I yanked out my purse organizer sample and the juice just beaded and then rolled off. I forgot my purse organizer was water-resistant! My leather purse is ruined, but my purse organizer is as good as new, and all of the stuff inside it (Coach wallet, iPhone, keys, business cards) was protected from my juice assault. Hooray!
Today turned out to be way more productive than I thought it would be. I had a lengthy discussion with the bag manufacturer and his production guy. He claims that he’ll have the pre-production sample of the briefcase done by end of week. Let’s hope he’s telling the truth this time. I also got a call from my purse organizer samplemaker, and he’ll be getting started on the laptop sleeve samples next week. He also gave me the name of a local manufacturer who he recommends for my purse organizer production. But before I meet with those folks I need to order some parts that need to be die-cut, which could take a few weeks. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get the purse organizers launched in time for the holiday season, but I’ll certainly try.
Thanks for tuning in!
