A few months back Kate was struck by the uncontrollable urge to buy something for the shop that was not, in fact, bagz.
Despite the uncharted territory, the innate un-bagness, and the very real possibility of being stuck with some merchandise that our customers may or may not care about, we went for it…
Fast forward a bit-we get a convo from a very nice woman who is interested in purchasing one of the blankets…but she needs it tomorrow. Can we make it happen?
After more than a little back and forth, a fair amount of scrambling, numerous e-mails, and some time on the phone with this lovely customer, we do, in fact, make it work. And as Mackenzie took her info over the phone, she inquired as to why she needed it so quickly.
Because, our lovely customer informed us, she needed it for a photoshoot which was taking place that weekend for a certain well known magazine.
We sent the blanket.
Fast forward a little bit more, to this past Saturday. What should Kate find in her mailbox?
There was our blanket (which was never really “ours” in any permanent sense of the term and we didn’t modify in any way, shape, or form, but we found it and we sold it and it passed through our workshop and so we take a certain amount of pride in it), made in to the coolest ottoman slip cover one could hope to see.
No, it’s not our big break, and no, there’s no way any one in the world at large will ever know that we had anything to do with this (except for you, of course), but hey, it’s our little taste of fame, and we think it’s pretty cool. And we can’t deny that.
