Lucky Shipping

 I wrote about our "massive" number of orders for Lucky. Here they are going out. I love posting the process of the things...So here goes:
Scott loading the clutches into their sleeping bags, ie manila, padded envelopes, to go camping with UPS until they get pulled out of slumber in their new cozy homes
 Waste. Sorry it has to happen sometimes. How can we reuse the back sides of UPS labels...?
 They move from behind the wall (our workspace), to in front of the wall (our store) in prep for the UPS guy to pick them up. 
 I love the used and abused United Parcel Service boxes. They looked like neat and tidy soldiers all ready to go.
 When I was taking these pictures the UPS guy said to me, "May I ask why you're taking these pictures?" I felt mildly stupid for a second, thought about and then told him the truth:
"Because I'm a really small company and it is still a big deal for me to have this many orders go out." He smiled and said, "oh, I get it." It was nice.

Congrats on all the orders! I'm so jealous that I wasn't able to take advantage of the Lucky Breaks, but I'll be on the look out for the future.

Congrats! I was so sad I missed out on this. I saw the post too late. I still have one of your beautiful clutches on my wish list and with fingers crossed my grumpy prince (husband) will buy me one.

Just you wait...soon there'll be way too many packages headed out for you to photograph!

It's here, it's buttery soft and it's GORGEOUS. Thank you all so much -- I can't believe I forgot to order a pompom for it! Next time ...

I am sorry I missed the deal too, congrats to all who got one of the fab clutches!! Idea for the back of Ups labels: Have people write a wish on the back and cover a wall in your office with the blank front, creating a messy collage, that you will add to as you use the labels!!

I wish one of those were heading my way! I just love your clutches! Congrats on all this success.

Now that it's Spring and I've been coming out of homebody mode, maybe I really *could* use a clutch for evenings! I wish I could come to the shop to pick in person, but a really nubbily cobalt could just do me! I loved what you posted about taking pics of the UPS packages and how nice when he understood... congrats and much admiration from this quarter!!

Love this post! I received my clutch yesterday and it is amazing! The clutch is so soft and gorgeous. This is my third clutch now I think it is time for me to get a handbag or tote! Thanks for sharing.
