Think about this fact:
Tote bags are big enough to be used as diaper bags. Furthermore, these fashion totes are very famous among the new or soon to be moms because of the trendy look and satisfaction of carrying a style over your shoulder.
Plus, in this economy who wants to spend extra money to buy huge diaper bags when you can transform your existing tote bag into a perfect bag for your baby?
Some of typical diaper bags are so huge in the market, you seem to have to make a choice to carry either the baby or the bag! Discount designer tote bags can be used as the diaper bags while you need them for your baby and then, when the need for placing bottles and diapers is over, I bet you know what to do with the same top designer tote bag!

When traveling - especially internationally- it's best to use unique luggage tags
to identify your bags easily. Our pink & lime green leather tags
are perfect for this purpose.
Think about it: when traveling, most people use luggage that is ordinary and bland and easily gets confused with others' travel pieces. So, it's better to spend a little money on the ID tag for the luggage
so when your piece comes out on the baggage carousel, you can see it from far away!
Grab it and go - less waiting and more enjoyment, especially if you're on vacation!

A friend of mine emailed the following story to me a few days ago. It is a Chinese proverb and carries a lot of valuable lessons. It touched me and made me realize how important it is to see all the positive aspects of others. Truly one's weaknesses may actually be hidden strengths if we learn to appreciate them and look at them from a different angle.
Here's the story:An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole, which she carried across her neck. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
For a full two years this [process] went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and half pots of water. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it was made to do.
After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house."
The old woman smiled [and said], "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them [through the water that seeps out from your crack.]"
She continued, "For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house."
Each of us has our own unique flaw...but it's the cracks and flaws that we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. You've just go to take each person for who he or she is and look for the good inside...
Smiling is contagious, so please pass it on...

Men's leather wallets
come in a huge variety. Men are just as picky about finding the Right wallet as women are about finding the right purse
For example, I want a wallet that is slim, has ample card slots, holds currency properly (with an internal, inconspicuous zippered pocket) AND has a small pocket for change with a button flap closure. Someone else, on the other hand, might just want a simple leather bifold with a transparent id holder (removable) so that he can carry it without feeling the bulk in his back pocket.
We can go on and on about the combination of different features and still not come up with a comprehensive list of all the features that men want in their leather wallets.
In over 11 years, we have sold thousands of men's wallets
and still cannot claim to have all the wallets for all types of men.
Nevertheless, it's nice to keep trying to fulfill the different wants of features in men's wallets, whether they are bifolds
, money clips
or chain wallets...
Then there is the question of leather type and color choice - you see how difficult it is to choose the right wallet for men? But once you find it (and perhaps have it personalized), then rest assured that he will keep it for YEARS...
Happy shopping and don't give up in your quest to find the perfect men's wallet

"You find a glimmer of happiness in this world [and] there's always someone who wants to destroy it." -Quote from the movie Finding Neverland.
The key is to still never give up and keep doing the right thing, in spite of what critics say!

My wife received a beautiful leather designer handbag as a gift and fell in love with it...except the harsh zipper. It was quite hard to pull and she needed to do a lot of work to close / open it.
She called the manufacturer and was told to try hot candle wax...IT ACTUALLY WORKED!
Just be careful not to get the wax on the fabric of the purse or material. This method works like a charm. Her zipper opens and closes smoothly and she gets to keep the purse too...
