Starting a Handbag Business : Starting a Handbag Business: Making Your Handbags


Hello! On behalf of expertvillage.com my name
is Eileen Duffy and today I’m going to talk to you about how to start your own handbag
company. My very first collection was all handmade, all of my bags are hand stitched,
hand beaded, hand embroidered, this is even a hand dyed felt, handmade felt, hand dyed.
And I employed about 10 people and I got them through either FIT or Parsons or the Fashion
High School, and I just put ads up in the schools and I just had the girls come over
and we would sew and make our samples and our production right inside my apartment,
and all we would do is just sew from 9 to 5 and that’s how my first collection was
made.

  1. I'm still a little new to YouTube. I subscribed to Expert Village, but how do I find specific presenters I want to watch? Hope you can help me. Her story seems very interesting and helpful. Thanks!

  2. VERY INFORMATIVE!

  3. ok i've replied nd first off dont go calling me a nerd how do you know if im a nerd nerds are smart im not and im not a bitch so why dont you grow up and stop calling people names.

  4. yeah…..UGLY little things. I'd be embarressed to walk around carrying one of those things that she calls a handbag. It looks like something you stuff grocery bags in and then again…its not even long enough to do that.

  5. Expert Village should be called
    Dummy Village. Who agrees with this?? Maybe if enough people agree, they'll consider to change the stupid name.

    EV is non-informational, stupid, a waste of valuable time and very un-educational. Who can think of more than this???

  6. Yeah, you should. Perhaps EV will re-think they're "expert" department.
    By the way, thanks for not taking my comment negative in any way for positive criticism. I was just mad because the video said NOTHING about HOW TO START a handbag business. I'm sure you got that though.
    I thought of one more item too…. lying. They technically lied cause the title said HOW TO START a handbag business. Instead the video pretty much is what this particular "Expert" did to start one herself.

  7. I strongly STRONGLY agree with you. Most of these so called experts don't know what they're talking about. And viewers lose interest in the very few people who knows what they're doing, because they have to watch a simple 5 minute tutorial in 10 separate videos.. It's so annoying! YouTube has a ten minute video cap folks, not one.

  8. She doesn't really tell u anything helpful but just talk about her own stuff :S mynn i fought there wud be goodness to this video lol

  9. Can you edit this and talk more about what it actually took for you to start? How you marketed and sold your purses, how much your costs were, etc.

  10. I only added this, cuz i like the shape of the bag. AND I looked on my favorites, people and it was the SHORTEST video i had!

  11. This is flippin disgusting. … 99,294 viewers wanted to know how to start a handbag business and ExpertVillage gives them one minute of stupid babble. How to disrespect massive amounts of fellow human beings who obviously wanted a hint or two to add to their knowledge!!!

    ExpertVillage, you don't care about people at all!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. LOL! I can't believe this constitutes as an Expert Village video. There was not even one second of this video that was useful, informative, or entertaining to watch. Grade: F!

  13. someone is out to play a joke on you….why are you looking up like that..look straight ahead dummy,,I hate expert village it seems to be the same thing w/ you people..get it together.

  14. I guess I'm with everyone else…How do you start the business? I don't know why I watched the video, Expert Villiage Videos are all the same. They never fully explain anything. And it makes me wonder if they ever read the comments to their videos…I am coming to the conclusion that they don't, otherwise they would know how people feel, and if they do read the comments, and keep making the videos the same way, well then there is something seriously wrong.
