Fun bags

Three years ago my cousin decided to take a chance and start a new company. She quit her job and started making high-end women’s golf bags. It was a great idea because for the most part, women’s golf bags aren’t stylish and we all know how much women love all kinds of bags.

Anyway, she’s on her third year now and the new line came out over the weekend. She names all her bags after girl’s names and this year she named one after Titso, one after my sister-in-law and one after my niece. Her company's website is all flash, so I couldn’t figure out how to copy a picture here, so you’ll just have to go check them out. Click on Cart bags. The Kimberly is Titso, my SIL is Carrie, and my niece is Jamie. And if you golf and you’re rich, buy one bitches!

Cute bags! I like that she also named one after Gwyneth Paltrow's kid, how nice.

My favorite is the Kimberly and if I played golf and was rich, I would totally get one - but I would ask for the "Tim's-blog-friend-discount"

The shout-out to Apple is interesting.

My mom's favorite is the Kimberly too. I think it's extremely ugly, but I'm a guy, so my opinion on fashion pretty much doesn't matter.

Those are really cute! And bright! I'm gonna have to tell some fellow lady golfers about this site! Thanks!

I have emailed the site to my mom. Sales may go up, not because she will buy one but her friends golf. My mom meets them for lunch at the club. The last time they let her on the course, she drank too much wine and drove the cart on the green.

Total offense, I don't like any of those. I like some from her past collections

Tim said...

steph - sweet! We'll split the sales commissions.

rit - yeah, there's only one or two in all that I like, but sales are through the roof. She was in Germany a few weeks ago at a convention. She didn't want to go because it costed too much money to go over there and send sample bags with her. The first person that came to her display bought 500 bags. Crazy.

That rocks! My sister started a purse company like 6 years ago.. and shes still goimg strong. Makes me proud of her.

Oh yeah, Im back.

Chuck said...

Damn...and here I thought this post was going to be about boobies.

I liked the Elizabeth and the Apple. But I don't golf, and Andre just got a new bag for Christmas. Also, he's a boy.

Good for your cousin, though!

RitMeyer said...

Good for her! I think it is awesome, just not my kind of awesome. Seriously, you have no idea how many of my mom's housewives will love this.

Tim said...

ht - yeah, but you didn't post. boo!

chuck - yeah, I had to have something that would make guys read it.

tpp - boys are gross.

rit - your mom has housewives?

The bags are so cute, It almost makes me want to take up golf. But I'd have to re-mortgage everything I own to afford a set of clubs. Plus I'd have to buy a house to get a mortgage in the first place.

I really like the Derby and the Jamie. I think it is awesome that she did that. I am thinking of starting a business that sells cool but otherwise non-essential items.

amy said...

1. Great new digs. Awesome!

2. Love the bags. I golf, but just got a new set with bag last summer. Though I just might bookmark her in case I decide I need a different bag based on the seasons! ;)

RitMeyer said...

Yes she owns a pack of desparate ones.

Melissa said...

I don't golf, mostly because I suck at it, but James' mom does and her birthday is coming up so this is a great idea. Is there nothing your blog can't solve?

Queen Of Pink said...

I don't like to golf. I suck at it, too hard to swing the clubs, damn boobs. But, if I was rich, and had small boobs I would probably love it. And then I would totally buy some stuff from her.

Chick said...

I don't golf...but I'd buy her bags anyway...just because.

But I will send her site to my obsessed golf friends who usually love to pay for more bags then they need for any activity.

babyjewels said...

You're new look is beautiful. Now buy me a pretty golf bag.

Dirk the Feeble said...

I don't golf, and I'm not a woman, yet I find myself strangely drawn to these bags.

Paul said...

No offense, but I agree that they're ugly. The one looks like a Scrabble board.

Blonde said...

Very cute but I have a pink Coach golf bag that I love and it cost a fortunr.

I think your cousin is amazing and how wonderful that she was able to make a lucrative career out of something she enjoys! So few people can say that in their lives. I hate my job.
