The finished sample arrived in London on Friday. There is one measurement that is not right and I know that I placed this on the dummy sample. It is slightly annoying but on the whole I am really happy . The guys in NY have done me really proud. 

It feels very strange that after working on this for so long, that I am still really only at the starting point. Keeping up your enthusiam is really hard. I keep thinking of other possible designs, I need to focus on the goal which was to get this bag on to the market.

I am also going to try and get in contact with buyers and ask their opinion, and then we will go from there.

My main concern is that I will be able to produce my bag at the cost that I want to retail it for.

I am a small business ( tiny ) and I don’t have lots of capital and I have no financial help, so everything I do I pay for directly. I can’t hold masses of stock without an order, I can’t approach buyers without a competitive cost and I can’t get that competitive cost without ordering a massive stock….. catch 22.

Any ideas on how I can’t get out of this vicious circle ?
