Yesterday started out on bike as I rode through the South of Broad neighborhood in Charleston with my photographer Charlotte (pictured below). She’s a big bike rider, while I haven’t been on a bike in several years. There were some “oh crap, I’m going to run into that car!” moments, but luckily no cars, humans or bicycles were injured.
Charlotte took me around to see the locations she’d scouted for our photo shoot on Sunday. Now it’s my job to narrow it down to three spots. Here are a few of the ideas:
And while this “location” won’t make the final cut, I thought this was one of the nicest signs “like this” I’d ever seen.
I made it back to my car in one piece and then it was off to Stitch to see my boxes and to chat about the website. I got the first version this week and there were a few goofy things. Namely, it was difficult to buy the bag. Um…that’s not going to work! We discussed some changes and I’m looking forward to seeing the revised site.
From there I went to my warehouse to see all the boxes and get one for the Purse Auction. It’s kind of crazy to see five palettes of boxes with your name on them. But there they were, just waiting for bags
Robert Davis (my shipping expert) and I also discussed FedEx rates. I want to give my customers the best rates and as many options as possible. We’re working to make that happen.
From there, I went back downtown to the Waterfront Gallery (pictured above via VisitSouth.com) to drop off the bag, the dust bag and the box for the Purse Auction tonight. It really felt like a big moment to have one whole package put together.
I’ve got a lot going on the next couple of days…auction tonight, photo shoot on Sunday and video shoot on Monday. That can only mean one thing: This bag project of mine is really coming together.
