The Story Behind Bagsie That 1
Old school friends re-met at a quiz night in 2017. We’d wanted to be in charge of our own destinies and so started our pop up handbag shop. We followed the Book Peoples business model of going into large corporates and giving the host company the option of us donating a percentage of our takings to their chosen charity. Good social responsibility for all concerned. We have grown quickly from 1 event per week to 4/5 per week. The rest is history!
Tour Round The Store
If you are a lover of high quality bags then there is a huge range to choose from with this small business ‘Bagsie That 1‘. With bag organisers from as little as £6 and bags from £10 the spending is in your hands and quality is always at the forefront. Better still, delivery is also free! I love that they have thoroughly considered everyone’s scenario for needing a bag. You’ve got laptop bags or clutch bags, as well as handbags and rucksacks. You can basically kit yourself out with some gorgeous designs and colours, all in the space of one website!
I was very generously sent this absolutely gorgeous faux leather bag. Oh em gee. When it arrived I couldn’t believe it. I had the choice of two colours and went for the pink, although it was so difficult to choose. When it arrived I fell in love. All my handbags are black or brown and I think this is such a summery colour too! I absolutely love the inside as it has a removable brown pouch which is perfect for keeping your valuables locked away, then it has a really cute gold twist and slot in lock on the front. Essentially, this bag has it all!
I was also sent a bag organiser which I think is a brill idea! I don’t know about you but my bag has so much stuff in it whenever I go to empty it I’ve got an entire house in there! Which is where this comes in handy as you can keep all your small items in it, then when you switch your bags there’s no faffing about!
The Little Touches
- My bag was packaged really well in a protective bag (which is also great to re-use… I’m a lover of recycling and re-using!)
- Delivery was super quick and arrived within 48 hours… I was very impressed!
Bagsie That 1 will soon be launching a branded range by David Jones (Paris) who make some gorgeous bags. This is fantastic for them as it’s a big step in the right direction for any small business. Can’t wait to see them!
And make sure you spread the word that there’s free delivery too! Handbag shopping at your own convenience without the extra delivery fees is bliss! So go on, treat yourself just in time for summer.
Thank you again for sending me a handbag… I can guarantee you it’s going to be my go to item for the summer and every season after that!
As always, #ShopSmall and support a Small Biz.
