Your wish is my command and it is with great pleasure and excitement that I announce that U-Handbag is going nowhere and will continue to trade!!!
No one is more surprised than I am. I can't thank you enough for all your lovely notes, well-wishes and sweet goodbyes. I have been overwhelmed by the number of kind and considerate messages that we have received, on occasion, appealing for us to "PLEASE!!! rethink our decision"; and I would be crazy not to listen. So, for the last month I have been in talks with someone that I trust will run U-Handbag with care and consideration and give our customers the amiable and helpful service that you have come to know us by.
Well, we have now signed on the dotted line and I can confidently pass the management of U-Handbag onto a most passionate and capable lady, Karen. U-Handbag will continue to be staffed by the original team, so you won’t experience any turbulence as you continue to fly with us :)
As for me, I will be taking a step back from U-handbag as planned. I won't be there personally to answer any emails, but I will continue to keep a loving eye on things quietly in the background; liaising closely with the new manager, assisting her in sourcing new and exotic products and designing new patterns.
Another big surprise development has occurred in the last two months, which is that a major craft company wishes to collaborate with U-Handbag and I couldn't be more astounded or excited about that. As soon as the collaboration is set in stone I promise to spill all the beans. All I can say now is, bag makers, you are in for some tasty treats!
Once again, thank you for your continued support and good wishes ☺
