What can I say?

Wow. Yes, that's the word I was looking for. I want to thank you all for the incredible comments you left. It has made me realize that I was too quick with my decision to shut down the blog. I was right, my readers are amazing and because of you, I will continue.

Thank you all so much!

Cathy, I am so glad you reconsidered. I would have missed this blog greatly. Your approach to preview the bag, minus any hype or personal observations, sets it all out in such an objective manner that we are sure to make our own informed decision about buying and not some GB marketing machine's decision.

Designers really need to understand that this is probably the majority of their GB-buying public and start to get their CTMs to send in previews to you. I know on the rare occasion I am on CTs where there are GBs, I always offer to send in the previews to you (and get the designer's approval).

Other CTs, please try to do the same thing!

It doesn't spoil any surprise. People who still want a surprise can choose not to come here. People who want an informed decision can come and see before they buy.

I think more often than not, seeing a preview makes someone on the fence decide to buy.

And if a preview would make someone choose not to buy, wouldn't that be better than having a customer buying sight-unseen and then being (possibly very vocally) disappointed?

Cathy, you have a great service here! So glad you changed your mind!

Cathy, that's fantastic news! I was so thrilled to see some GB's up when I stopped by today!

Glad to hear that you're not calling it quits- though I wouldn't have blamed you. There are some serious cuckoos out there and I wouldn't want them emailing me and commenting on my blog. You've come through for me- I've asked for a GB before and had it revealed shortly after- thanks again for that and thanks for sticking around. =)
