I woke up at 3 something AM. By 3:55 I realized I wasn’t getting back to sleep and just came downstairs and started working. But 8:45 I was really, REALLY ready to head over to Charleston Mailing Services and wait for the laptop bags.
I was on the phone with my friend Kimberly when the truck arrived. Of course, I ran out in the street and flagged him down.
Then I ran back inside and had them open the warehouse doors.
The truck pulled around back.
And just like that, the bags appeared!
You can only get a charming Spanish Moss shaded warehouse in Charleston, South Carolina.
The owner of Charleston Mailing Services, Robert Davis, came out himself to get the first pallet of laptop bags.
Andrew came out to get the second.
I watched carefully as the bags were maneuvered into the warehouse.
The most exciting part came when I opened the boxes. Each laptop bag was inside it’s dust bag and each one was wrapped in a separate plastic bag. Customs hadn’t ripped into anything! They were all pristine.
I try not to post crazy pictures of myself, but this is the only way to describe how I felt: Tired, Relieved and Elated!
The laptop bag boxes were waiting to be tested.
These are the corrugated boxes for mailing. Robert ordered 100 to get us started. I said, “You’d better order some more.”
Robert, Andrew and the rest of the Charleston Mailing Services Team packed up four bags so we could see how it went. I was thrilled with the whole package! We sent the first four to people who are reviewing the bag. It was a great test and Robert came back with some questions from FedEx.
That’s my story! The bags are here. Talk about an AWESOME Friday. If you’re on the Wait List, look for an email on Monday. If you’re not, we’ll be launching to the world on Wednesday. Get ready!
