Merchants Overseas Tote Bag: Made Into A Beautiful and Original Work of Art!

Posted on: February 15, 2010

Every Tradeshow we go to, Merchants Overseas gives away a large tote bag full of informational goodies.  In the past month a a half, we’ve been to The Special Event Show, The Craft & Hobby Show, and The Tucson Bead Show, giving a total of 750 goodie bags away! It is our hope that these bags and everything in them, is reused and worth the hours of stuffing and packing =)


Well, a wonderful artist named Paulette Adams from the Summerland Cottage Studio snagged a bag from us at CHA, added an Italian cotton paisley swatch from Ralph Lauren, and did an amazing new look that she described as “simple, chic, fun and a super quick sew”.   And we agree!!


We love DIY projects!!

I never expected your company would find my little blog, as it was so new and I had not told anyone about it at the time.
I was most appreciative of the tote during the show. I found a stack of them on an empty chair and took one to lug all the paraphernalia I had collected. Thank you !
I am so glad you used my creativity as a good thing !

Would you mind telling me how it is you found my post ?

Hi Paulette! I actually found your blog in a Google alert for Merchants Overseas! Thank you for being so creative, we really do love people like you. If you ever decide to incorporate crystals into your work check out our new website!
