My sales on Etsy have increased quite a bit this month. Big big thanks to all my customers! Posted above is one of many purses that sold this week at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. My inventory is getting low so I am trying to get a lot of new handbags finished up this week. I'll be adding them to my shop throughout the week. I wish I had prepared a larger inventory for the holidays. But I have to be realistic and remind myself that I only have two hands and one sewing machine. If you are planning to buy a gift for the holidays all my handbags ship in one business day after receiving payment. For US orders , I ship via USPS Priority Mail Service. This service is pretty reliable and packages usually arrive in 2 to 3 days. It includes a delivery confirmation number so you can track your package online. International orders ship via First Class Mail. OK, I better get to work!

I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava
