    Suggestions, please....

    Ok, Ladies, can you suggest someplace other than ebay or craigslist where you all sell your tote bags that you make, and even the ones that you don't make yourself. I have a few that I have made, as well as a retired Vera Bradley, but I live in such a small town, there really is no place locally. I know that Etsy does not allow non-handmade items. So, if you have any ideas, I would appreciate them. Thanks in advance.

    Hmmm... not sure how many bags you have, but what about a flea market booth? That might be too much investment though if you don't have a whole lot of bags.

    I've had good luck taking my bags to my Weight Watcher's meetings. Seems like every week someone wants another bag made. I take in a few new ones that I've made each week and they love seeing them. Do you have somewhere that you get together with other women?

    How about your church or another local group in the area?

    When I lived in Chapel Hill, TN. there was a small independent drug store that sold them for a local lady that made them. If you live in a small town, check with beauty salons, drug stores, perhaps even a small hardware store. I found the people in Tennessee so accomadating, friendly and always ready to help. Just a thought, but might help.
    God Bless.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    As mentioned before post on a notice board at a grocery store (our library has one too). Also try smaller independent stores, gift shops, clothing stores.

    What about your local hair/nail/tanning salons?
