A New Adventure for LaCartera!

The Bedford, VA boutique closed this week, and it’s time for a new adventure for LaCartera!  This is not a sad or disappointing time for me, because I gave it a try, and the location was not a good fit for my product.  Since the opening of that location, I’ve sold more on Etsy, and to clients in the Washington, D.C. area.


 So what’s the new adventure???

Stay tuned there’s more to come from LaCartera!

      Thank you! How is your new endeavor so far?

      1. Going great! The class completed their pencil skirts today. I gave them some free time after and one girl made a bowtie on her own. Flaws, yes, but the creativity is priceless.

      2. lacartera says:

        That’s awesome! The class sounds like so much fun. Please post some of their creations! I would love to see!

      3. Will do later today! 🙂

      Thanks Kim! I appreciate your words of encouragement. I ventured out and i’m not disappointed about the risk. “Nothing ventured nothing gained!” I’m glad I found out early that the location was not the best for me. Lesson learned. …. Location is important!!! Now to turn this into a positive. 🙂

      Hi Kim, I can easily accommodate the size although, I don’t have the color. A similar fabric should be easy to find. I except custom orders on Etsy that allows you to create something unique.

      Please Convo me on Etsy and we can discuss more details when you’re ready.

  6. Best of luck, Sheila! Looking forward to seeing your next purse designs. 🙂

    I don’t know if you do shows. In Richmond, twice a year, is a wonderful show called Bizarre Bazaar. All kinds of vendors show up to sell their wears and to drum up more business. It is not your average “craft” show – 10s of thousands of people visit and I for one know, lots of stuff gets bought, especially unique items like your purses. I don’t know if you have considered it, but it is really an excellent and long running, and respected venue. Just a mention.

    1. lacartera says:

      I’ve haven’t heard of this venue. Thank you so much for the information. I will definitely check this out. It sounds like a fun event! Thank you for sharing… 🙂

      1. kanzensakura says:

        In the spring and around Thanksgiving. People come from all around to this because they know they will find interesting, unique, delicious items. People usually go for all days of the event and spend hours and dollars.

      2. lacartera says:

        That’s so cool! Thank you!

I love to hear from you!
