I LOVE Valentine's Day. I think I mainly love it because it's just a bright spot in the middle of what is usually the coldest month in winter here in Missouri. So, I thought I'd have a little celebration in my Etsy shop for all my awesome customers! I'm offering $15.00 off any of my custom order Concealed Carry Purses!! Ready to shop??? Click HERE!
I'm also so excited to offer a new feature on my purses.....
a LOCKING ZIPPER!! YAY!!
It took me a while to get on board with the locking zipper. Not because I don't think they are a good idea. I think they are a wonderful idea, especially if you are a mom or anyone who is around children. If you carry, you probably already know that there are some controversies over whether or not a locking zipper is a good idea or not. I leave the research and final decision up to you. Just know that at my shop you have either option.
From a sewing perspective, I was nervous about the installation. However, it turned out to be pretty easy. All you need to buy are some zippers by the yard and then locate a company who sells locking pulls. In just a few seconds, (or hours if you you are putting the pull on wrong), you will have the lock on and then you can just sew like normal. Actually, I got the first one on really quick a month ago. Then, when I tried to get the other one on when I was making the purse, it took quite a bit of struggling from both me and my husband. Finally, my husband figured out that we were trying to get it on from the wrong side! Ugh! So, I think I'll make a quick tutorial if any of you are interested in ever changing out your pulls. It doesn't have to be a locking pull. Maybe you just want to add a fun handmade pull.
This is also my first concealed carry purse made in black with gold hardware. I love the gold on black! Don't you? Very classy.
I've also came up with a new slogan for my business. (Actually, my husband came up with it.) I often hear from my customers that they are so delighted that the pocket is truly concealed from view. Thus, the slogan..........Wait for it..............
CONCEAL WITH CONFIDENCE
What do you think?
Another special feature about this purse is that the outside and inside are both outdoor fabric. That means, it has already been treated to resist stains and fading! Love that!
I hope you like my new purse! I can see it being a very popular choice in my ETSY SHOP.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Valentine's Day! Also, don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for our weekly PINBELLISH PARTY where you can link up your latest and greatest Pinterest Pins! It's a lot of fun and there is even a little "pin" trivia for you to enjoy.
It has been crazy busy around here since Christmas. Would you believe I'm still working on Christmas orders?! I know! I have come to realize that there is no way I can keep up with my orders without a little extra help now and then. So....that leads me to my announcement! GCC is hiring an extra set of hands to assist in the process. Well, if you count my wonderful husband, I now have 2 sets of extra hands. My husband helps keep the books all in order AND he even does a little cutting now and then (shhh...don't tell anyone). I never would have thought I would be so busy with my little purse business. The Lord has truly blessed me in this new endeavor and I'm so grateful!
Some of you also know that my shop has been on vacation for a month in order to get a littlele caught up, which I've read recently is a big no-no! If you can't keep up, that means you need to hire help. So, that's where I'm at. I just reopened my Etsy shop, GCCginascraftcorner, this morning!! I'm so excited because I really have missed the interaction with my customers. I love helping them pick out the perfect fabric for their CC purse.
Being able to pick out your own fabric is what sets my concealed carry purses apart from most on the market. That, and you know for sure my purses are made right here in the good ol' USA!
To celebrate having my shop open again, this weekend only, if you buy a purse from my Etsy shop you will be entered to win 1 of 2 Maxpedition Velcro Holsters. It will be a perfect addition to your new CC purse!
One last announcement!! I will be adding locking zippers as an option add-on to my purses. Many of my customers have requested this option and I'm happy to provide it for them to give that extra security.
So, if you have time this weekend please do pop on by GCC and say hello! Have a wonderful weekend. It is supposed to be almost 60 here in MO today. Yippee!!

I hope you are all settling into the new year. My tree is down and I'm happy to be back into a routine with homeschool and my Etsy business. Enough chit-chat. Let's get to the party! I'm curious to see what you all have been up to. ;)
