1. How have you been affected by the recession?

Well, we started when the economy was already in the recession, so we started at a time when it can only go up. We have a price point, as most of our bags are under $100. The material we are ge oakley sale tting is so expensive and high end, so you (customers) are being green because we are keeping the material out of the landfill.

4. What is your main market?

I think th oakley sale at people who love unique stylish accent pieces to an outfit and people who will see the quality of the fabric. It’s the young chic professional that loves a great accent piece to an outfit that is under $100.

We definitely realize that boutiques are our niche. We won’t be in regular department stores. We see us going into the major boutique stores in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and Dallas.
