2. What can shoppers expect to see at the Birds of a Feather Fair from your booth?
Tillie Bags are unique, handcrafted purses, totes, and/or all-purpose bags. They range in size, color, fabric type, and embellishment. The time and attentiveness given to each bag ensures that the highest standards for quality and precision are met. In short, a Tillie Bag is something you can’t manufacture; it is created with love.
Because no two bags are alike, a Tillie Bag owner can be assured that hers is unique and one-of-a-kind. Each bag is imprinted with a signature butterfly - the mark of a Tillie Bag.
A Tillie Bag is not a flimsy bag! Every bag is durable and properly constructed without compromising on beauty and elegance. All of the bags are padded, lined, and contain pockets and/or zipper compartments.
A Tillie Bag is not limited to one season! Customers are offered a wide variety of bags made from various fabrics such as Cotton, Cotton blends, Quilted fabric, Corduroy, and more.
3. Tell us some more about yourself.
For as long as I can remember, I have loved the endless possibilities involved in purse design and creations. I decided to exercise my crafty side and try my hand at a few purses. Within the past few months, Tillie Bags were born! Because my grandmother Matilda (“Tillie”) taught me everything I know about sewing, these bags are a tribute to her memory.
A portion of the proceeds will go towards making quilts for the kids at the Ronald McDonald House, a truly inspirational organization.
