New batch of coin purses

The other day I dropped off what may be my last batch of snap-frame coin purses at The Rage: the owner has announced that the store will be closing as of October 1st. This makes me sad, for several reasons. Not only is it a great store, but the positive feedback I received on my purses was a huge source of ego-boosting for me. Knowing that complete strangers liked what I made certainly helped improve my self-esteem, and making the items gave me a sense of purpose that a professional career doesn't always provide. I need to have a creative outlet in my life, and the store provided that for me. I'm really hoping that the business is purchased and continues, even if at a different location.

So, I am on the lookout for new retail opportunities to fill the gap. I've already contacted a few stores and hope to have something in place soon. If anyone has any suggestions, please contact me.

Hi Karen,
It's Shirley from 100 mile finds. Have you contacted Periwinkle? Wise Daughters? Beadle? Drysdale & Co.? Black Dafodil? The Purple Thumb? Scooter Girl?
They are all on, they might be good people to contact.
Good Luck!

Thanks Shirley! I've tried a few of those places but will look at the others.
