Shop Small, Local and Handmade Bags on Small Business Saturday, November 25th, 2017

November 25, 2017

Quite often I am asked two questions about my small business website 144 Collection. The first is how did I come up with the name 144 Collection? The second is what is it like operating a small business? The first one is pretty simple since my handmade handbags and baby accessories company is named after the building where I first learned to sew. The second however is much more complicated especially in todays ever changing retail climate.

 

 

My mornings begin early because I take product pictures of handbags, wristlets, makeup bags, and baby gifts first thing. I have favorite local community shops that let me take pictures of my products no questions asked. Though I usually buy something that I usually will use as a prop to say thank you.

 

The afternoons are spent answering emails, posting to social media, checking and filling orders. The nights are spent sewing and putting together orders for my seamstress Mary Sue Lee. Then repeat the process all over again. The bottom line is that it’s not easy but I can tell you one thing it is definitely worth it!

 

 

 

The help and support we have received from the community, customers, family and friends have continued to help 144 Collection grow.  We continue to be amazed by our customers and the love they show to all of our products. Custom orders are a big part of our business and we appreciate that you want us to be apart of your special moments.  We want you to realize that when we say this is family business that it really is.  Those are actually my family and friends posing in those product photos and working with me at those handmade events. We want to thank you for taking the time to shop small, local and of course handmade.
