You know... AGAIN this year I missed "red.neck Chic's" birthday.
AGAIN this year I missed "in.di.vid.u.al Objects" birthday. (Did you know I've been slaving away over my sewing machine and in the pocketbook business for 13 years? Dang... I'm not even that old.)
AGAIN this year I missed my OWN birthday.
Okay, missing my own birthday was on purpose (you can only celebrate the anniversary of your 13th birthday so many times), but...
Let's celebrate them all - what do you think?
Starting NOW I will start telling you some stories about alllllll of the different things that make up "red.neck Chic"... starting with a pocketbook.
"red.neck Chic" makes pocketbooks.
Oh... ha! No - I started making pocketbooks when I couldn't find one to replace my cheapo, store-bought plastic one! Who knew I was SEW picky about pockets and handle length and fabrics and lining?!
I went home, designed one - and voila! Here I am today! Still designing my pocketbooks from the ground up - I design my own patterns, design my own pocketbooks (no two are the same!) make them all myself - I name them, I love them... I give them born on dates and mark them "authentic"... and every single one of them has a story to tell. YOU get the real deal... down to the tiniest detail! And I am a picky detail girl!
Where did "red.neck Chic" get it's name after I had been in production for sew many years? Here you go:
The calling: It all started on a sunny Saturday morning – U-turn number…(not sure what number, but we made some Grandparents Proud!!!) and, of course, the mandatory garage sale! With treasured belts, lamp bases and an embroidered pillowcase as trophies held high, off I go to the garage sale CEO (that loved my purse) – just to disappoint when I was a quarter short! Oh no! Am I going to have to give up THE GREATEST belt?!!? Alas, no, she reluctantly gave up on the quarter, but “red.neck Chic” was born…thank you garage sale lady!!! The garage sale lady (we're talking... ultimate redneck here) inspired my name, my logo, my branding - EVERYTHING within 23 miles. THAT fast it all clicked for me. I knew where I was... I knew where I wanted to go - duct tape and all.
There are SEW many other "divisions" of "red.neck Chic"... there will be SEVERAL other posts telling you all of my stories. With each post (offering a new addition to the giveaway) - and each comment you leave me (on each post) - you get a chance to win a BIG box of FUN in the end! That's right:
