You would be hard-pressed to find a lady who can pass up this season’s fabulous new satchel without a second glance. Our bags are often our favorite fashion accessory. We can’t get enough!
Because of this obsession, purse parties are incredibly popular within the direct sales industry. As these items are usually in a more mid- or upper-range price category, consultants can potentially make some nice money selling handbags from home. And most companies offer a number of upsells for each piece they offer in an attempt to increase the average sale.
There is no shortage of opportunities to meet every style and budget. Here are some of the best-known names in this category.
Thirty-One Gifts offers an extensive product line. Their handbags, diaper bags, tote and organization bins can all be personalized with the customer’s initials or desired design. Each month, new sales and limited time products are introduced to entice customers to place an order. Thirty-One Gifts also has a very generous hostess program for those interested in earning free and discounted products. For a limited time, get started for just $99.
Magnolia and Vine recently purchased the rights to Miche’s signature interchangeable handbags. Thus far, the designs offer nowhere near the customization Miche customers were used to, but they are pretty stylish with an interchangeable snap that Magnolia and Vine has come to be known for. Business kits run $99 to $249.
