A happy story of bags

Do you remember some time ago, a long time ago..I announced on my blog : youpi ! I opened my shop on etsy! and...today I'm so happy to tell you : youpi! I sold my first bag on my etsy shop!
this little jean bag above with the smiling pin-up girl. And you know what makes me so happy? It has been bought by a Spanish man who stumbled on my blog while updating some infos about a restaurant in Granada, he liked the blog, then looked up my etsy shop, (which to be honest is very small indeed), liked my bags and decided to get one for his girlfriend in Ireland. Ah...the cool side of blogland and Internet....it will never cease to thrill me....

My happy bags story originates in Spain. When I settled down here about 8-9 years ago, I was only designing cards, stationary and packaging. Progressively, perhaps because of the sunny weather, which greatly helped me in being always full of beans and inspired, I started to make bags, by hand, since I didn't have a sewing machine. I love sewing by hand, so it didn't matter really. Little by little I sold one or two bags to a shop on the coast, a few in Granada. I was dreaming, I had ideas....I found a fabric supplier near Alicante, a bag maker in Ubrique, the town of leather and bag manufacturing. And one day, off I went to the Prêt-à-Porter show in Paris to present a small collection of handbags.

these are the bags I presented.
a series called urban romantic which features love poems by Pablo Neruda



I had my vinyl period which I must say isn't
really my best but is fun if you're in
for an outrageous red or pink




I also had my funky glamorous period






but the ones I will always cherish is the
1st series of bags I made by hand

Fleur
Wallis
Rose K.
Fresh
Very me

I feel sad not to have these anymore...yes, it's stupid... I should be happy they're gone but they remind me of the time when everything is exciting because you're just starting and eh..baby you don't know where it's going to lead you....
My happy bags story had ups and downs due to changes in my personal life. These last few months I kept asking myself why do I keep translating about bonds and shares when I could spend the whole day designing cards and bags! And the answer always comes right into my face. Because of finances, baby....

Still, I hope in a few months time, I'll be able to tell you another happy story of bags....



ps : José Manuel, espero que leeras esta entrada y una vez mas, muchas gracias!!!

What a talented and creative maker of handbags you are! The little jean bag with the shells is my favorite, and I'm not surprised that it sold.

so precious! Lala your bags are beautiful, and in connection i love how your creative venture began. i think when we can do things by hand it somehow touches our heart.

continued success. well done!

Congratulations! They are all so fun but I have to say that the pinup girl bag is my favorite, too.

I hope you sell lots more bags. They are special treasures.

these are wonderful bags - all of them but the best would be the one with poems on. Then one could ponder all the time.
Happy weekend.

All of your bags are magnificent and creative Lala! So happy the man found you through the internet!
Isn't it simply amazing?

Hope you have fun with your friend this weekend!

You're a talent. Dior and Gucci should've employed you to design theirs! :)

Lala, as always, you tell your stories in the most charming way. The "Bow Bag" is my absolute favourite. It is "drop-dead glamour". It has a very 1930's or 1940's feel. I can see those beautiful ladies of that era, gliding across the entrance to the casinos of Monte Carlo holding this bag....

Also, "Fresh" is lovely..and your photography is terrific. I understand about the bonds and the shares...only too well....

May there be many more bags in your future, dear Lala...

your bags are wonderful and original. I don't have that creativity gene, but think it's so awesome in others!

Sara said...
