Thank you for being here again and reading my weekly blog! My name is Brechje Gondrie, founder of All-time Favorites and I take you every week in my adventure to make All-time Favorites the big bag brand in the Netherlands. This week I want to explain to you the how and why of the different sizes of shoppers.
The very first model in the collection was of course the big shopper. I was inspired by the well-known Ikea shopper, but actually added so many beautiful and useful features that it turned out to be a top solution for all those busy women, with an on-the-go lifestyle who want to get everything out of life!
To make it a bit easier for you to find your wallet or keys in that large bag, I made a toilet bag that you could click on the inside. That was the idea. Later it turned out to be ideal for your shower gear after exercise or for your sunscreen when you go to the beach. It saves me a lot of cursing on vacation now my hubby in 1x can find that bottle of sunscreen in the matching toilet bag! Let a man look for something in your bag; big or small; no chance! Recognizable?
In recent years we also received a demand for a smaller-sized shopper. A companion big enough for a few groceries or to take to work. Where you can throw your handbag and some groceries for example. That is how the small shopper. It was a bit of searching for the right size, but we were able to develop it perfectly with some help from you. I actually have a small shopper with me every day. I throw in my bucket bag (now in the sale!) And then my lunch or sports clothing. For me the ideal companion for every day.
Then I thought that we had pretty much finished the range; large, small and the toiletry bag. But that turned out differently. I had already received an e-mail a few times about whether we could go even smaller 1 buddy. The type of handbag. And that is how the shopper XS was created. We added this to the collection last winter. As a test in 1 color. It is really a sweet, though I say so myself.
Now my question is, now that I am working on the new winter 2018 collection again; do you like this addition? Does this format complete the collection? Is it now 4 in a row? Or should we keep an eye on 3? I would love to hear from you!
Have a great weekend everyone! Love Brechje xoxo
