It's official! I own a business. I opened a business before (I made really cute magnets with photos inside of them) and that was fine. I only sold them at craft shows and of course made no money. I have been wanting to do something entrepreneurial for a while, but couldn't think of exactly what I wanted to do. As you may also know, I love raising money for horse rescues. I decided that I could do both things at one time and have opened up "It's In The Bag!" an custom tail bag company (ha!! It's just me) that donates 15% of each sale to the rescue of the week. The rescue is the benefit for two weeks, and 15% of the total made goes to that rescue. I figured that once I pay for fabric, shipping and sales tax they will probably make out better than I do.
Check out my "store" and let me know what you think! I'm working on getting a URL, (Edit: I did! http://www.customtailbags.com/). Feel free to forward it to rescues that you like, so they can get added to my list. I do require that they have 503-C status, NOT be featured on the Fugly Blog (no seriously, it's a requirement) and are able to provide me with a receipt (but if they can't life will go on.) I hate keeping track of receipts, but I also hate fighting with the tax man.
