Back with my 'Tote Bags' !

Hey friends,
Sorry for being absent from blog. I actually got involved in a small business of my own and was busy setting it up. Finally got time to share all my adventures here. :-)

Besides being a photographer, I started a proper business outta my interests of sewing and painting; when a city bookstore gave me a chance to exhibit my hand-painted bags! They are Walking BookFairs. They have a neat little space which is a book store plus an open hangout place. They travel across in a van full of books to spread the word of reading habit. Read more - here! 

So they had this 'Book Mandi' coming up i.e. a flea market kind of event for a week. I decided to make and put up my bags there for sale, which I already make since a long time for myself. It was time to make more and promote myself as an artist and entrepreneur. An experiment to see how things go and I wasn't expecting much. :)

Fortunately, luckily, and with the love of my family and friends It worked out. My friends loved it. They came, they bought my bags, ordered and were happy with my initiative :) Special thanks to the Walking BookFair guys, for without them it wouldn't have been possible. You see one needs a charger to get things done. That was this! I'm happy :)

I had another event after that, will share the experience in next post :)
