Late last year, a friend and I started a small bag business. However, my partner passed away weeks after we joined our first selling event. Since then, I was thrust into doing all things for the business all by myself. I was previously content to handle the production tasks so I felt ill-prepared to handle the marketing but I did it, fueled perhaps by my passion for the product, the memory of my friend, and the good will of his network.
We had talked about joining the Future Market but as things unfolded, it didn’t happen. I was too busy with many things. Thankfully, days ago, I managed to snag a slot in the monthly market for crafters, artists, and designers like me.
Happy Totes will be at the Future Market at Escolta today, Saturday, from 9AM to 6PM. Come see us if you have time!
