Learn. Make. Sell. All about clutches.

If you are near, check these craft shops out!

Just read a quick article in USA Today’s Travel section.  Thought you might like to check these excellent craft shops out.

As you can see, these craft shops are trending up so if you are near, go take a look!  See what crafts are displayed.  If the store’s aesthetics fit, inquire about having them display several of your handmade, one-of-a-kind clutches!  It would be a great coup!

Check out the list of the top 10 places to shop for crafts by clicking on the pic below:


Have a great weekend everybody!

New Twitter promotions

Hey guys!

Check out the Twitter wallpaper that I have up!  I will be rotating these with another set in a week.  All to promote my clutch handbag makers who use my fine metal purse frames in their craft.

I tweet about clutches.  Please follow to get the latest tweets!

All will be directed to the Facebook album that I created, which contains a direct link from the clutch to the clutch-maker’s shop.

If you are interested in becoming listed as a seller and get included in my marketing and promotions, please read this post.

Thanks and have a great week!

End of Summer Clutches

Clutch fans … I’ve got another collection of beautiful, one-of-a-kind clutches ready for purchase from various clutch makers.  Posted at the Facebook fan page, you can click on the clutches that you like, read the brief description, and each listing has a direct link to that clutch.  Once there, you can shop around that seller’s shop to see her other handmade goods!  🙂  Look for the clutch listings where the frame is noted “Trademarks of and Khuong LLC”.  You can be sure that you are buying the highest quality frames that are tested for lead.

Check it out!

One of a kind. One for you. One for your bestie!

These are made from clutch makers, all of whom can be found on the Sellers page.  They take custom orders too!

**For those of you who are currently listed as sellers, I will be cleaning up the list to update your banners and check out your shop’s inventory for more marketing, supporting and promoting.  With fall weddings, fall craft shows, and back-to-school time, I will be promoting your clutches so that customers (the end-user) can peruse and buy.  ALL SELLERS:  please be sure to note in new listings, shop announcement, Profiles, or Policies (depends on you and whether or not you buy from me exclusively) those clutches made with my fine purse frames that “this clutch was made with fine purse frames that are “Trademarks of and Khuong LLC” or something to that effect so that the customers can find them!

Promotions on Twitter are forthcoming.

Advertising starts in September.

If you would like to become a seller, please read this post and convo me with the request.  I’m happy to add you!

Shout out to SELLERS on my shop announcement

As I continue to get more hits on my blog — about 1000+ hits a month — the SELLERS page continues to be in the top 3 pages that is searched.  All the sellers listed have had referrals leaving my blog to go directly to their shops.

If you haven’t submitted yours, do check out the current sellers on there to see what they’ve done.

I am so impressed with the craftsmanship of these artisans.  I am so proud how many of you have taken my basic ( – yet thorough :))- PDF tutorial for making clutches and have flourished with your creations.  The creativity and techniques are amazing!

And I love that you stick to what you do best:

* Your photos are consistent in tone and look and quality

* Your clutches are within the creative style that you’ve picked.

* Your product listings do a great job explaining the fine work that went into making it.

You can look at all the sellers and see how unique each shop is.  Each artisan has really carved a niche out for herself.  Kudos to all of you!

Oh, the point of this post was to let you all know that I’ve updated my shop announcement to let inquirers find out how to find you sellers.  So here’s another way that I am supporting your work.:

Another way for my referrals to find you!

Just spreading the love!

Many love the idea of making a clutch, but few have the time.  So buying a kit will satisfy some, but some would rather buy a clutch already made.  There’s nothing like instant gratification!

So be sure you have enough in your store!
