Custom orders have kept me quite busy this past week so I've been a little behind in my blog posts. Today I finally finished up my last handbag, a custom order going out to Switzerland that will be shipped tomorrow. It's a gift for a September birthday. About a month ago I decided to officially take on custom orders and it has been a success. So far this month half my sales were custom bags. They take a bit more time in the planning stage as I often need to send several emails back and forth to a potential customer to make sure to get all the details correct. I also have to check my stock of fabric and make sure I have enough yardage to produce a bag before I commit to an order. In the end it is satisfying to know a customer is getting exactly what they want. Custom orders rock!
