We have a confession: we were beginning to doubt ourselves. Team Meatbagz has never claimed to have all the answers, something which the world was more than happy to remind us of on Black Friday. Sure, we had some sales (which we are extremely grateful for). But not as many as we were anticipating/hoping for (because, let’s face it, we were dreaming big).
The weekend was quiet. Again, a few sales, but no big rush of adoring fans shouting “MEATBAGZ!” now that they were awoken from their tryptophan stupor and having survived the early morning sales of Friday.
Alack and alas, had Meatbagz run its course? Had the Meatbagz love dried up? Had we sold Meatbagz to all that wanted them?
We were beginning to think so. In fact, we went so far as to wonder if it was all worth it (hint: it is).
Then we got this in our inbox:
Can you spot the Meatbagz? Yes. Etsy had us right there, bottom row right, in an e-mail going out to all the etsy fans out there. And ye olde orders for our compass bag (which we were beginning to think was this year’s gnome tote) came a-rollin’ in.
And then, for the cherry on top, Poppytalk had a feature on the Storque blog, complete with our bull bag in the “Winter Dude” collection:
Ah, yes. We’ll gladly take this as a cosmic sign that while we may question our dreaming big for Meatbagz, we never know who’s going to help us on our way.
Thanks for the reminder.
