A lady in my area (North Carolina) that started a purse business held purse parties. She found someone to host the party similar to a Tupperware party and she brought several already made purses in various sizes, fabric samples, trim samples and took orders. If you are just trying to get started maybe this idea will help.

I read that article. Very intersting. That's what you call cornering the market on something. I often told my husband that if I had sat down every season to make crazy hats for the Mardi Gras and Irish Parades in New Orleans, I could have made some nice pocket change.
I made the hat that you see in the picture for an Irish Parade in New Orleans. Every year I would make a new one for me and the kids. It never failed, every parade, there would be some sweet little old lady that fell in love with my hat; as a gesture of kindness, I would offer it to her at the end of the parade (for free).
Well, Hurricane Kartina (that witch ) came in and moved my job to Houston. My house is fine, but the job moved over here so, Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work I go. Problem is....no one down here celebrates the parades, etc. I guess I have to figure out how to make a hat in the shape of a "Cowboy Boot".
