I'm not sure if I had a favorite bag more like three or four. I really liked most of the totes, the Utah tote and the Hawaii Weekender were a couple of my favorites.

I thought the site was very professional looking and easy to navigate. I liked the additional pictures to show the small details as well as the little facts about each state/bag.

Very impressed!

I love this! The bags are so diverse...it isn't just like looking at one style of bag in different colors and sizes...they are all unique...which makes choosing a favorite difficult!

I loved Alaska and the Main Beach Tote...but my winner has to be the ARIZONA RATTLER...animal print and only $30...you can't go wrong!

Great site...easy to use...I knew right where to go for what I wanted.

What a great idea! I loved the Alaska Trapper and the Missouri Creve Coeur. I loved the oil black trapper, it is so cute. It kind of reminds me of a sleeping bag. The missouri is so fun and flirty and I loved the different colors you can choose. Way to go on creating a profesional website that was very user friendly. The pictures were great and showed a lot of detail on the bag.

These bags are so great! For me, it's a toss up between the Maine Companion and the Texas Star Clutch. I think that the site is pretty user friendly. My only suggestion would be to make sure to show the inside of each bag. I really like the look of the Louisianna Market Sac but there are no pictures of the inside.
Dana H, Texas

This was an incredible site and I'm thrilled that you've included it in your program. The designer has done a fabulous job, and honestly, what better way to capture history than to include it with your daily attire. Lovin' it. I really enjoy the Wisconsin Porter, but LOVE the North Carolina Kitty Tote. Man, I could spend all my money here! Just think of the gifts. As far as user friendly - yes, yes, yes! I loved that the colors changed on the rollover and I really appreciated the simplicity of the website design. Great stuff!

Great site. Love the photos that show detail. It would be helpful to have the color names under the color squares, just makes it a tad easier for the customer. Very user friendly. Love the creativity of it all and the fun facts are fantastic. Favorite bags, the Mississipi Brunch bag has to be my favorite, but I also like the Wisconsin Porter in corduroy especially!

Karin, Dave, and baby Evan said...

Oh my, I can't choose just one! There's no way. I am so in love with your purses. But, if I must narrow it down, it would either be the Hawaii Weekender or the Colorado Lodge Tote.

I am really digging your website. For sure, it's shopper friendly. One of my favorite features is how you can just put your cusor over the image to see the detail/different purse colors. I'm a visual person, so I love when I can get a better look at the item.

Jennifer said...

I love this concept for handbags. Since there is no South Carolina one yet (and that would be my choice), I really love the Vermont Sledder. I'd love to win, so please count me in! Thanks for the chance! Have a great week!

My favorites by far are the giwveaway bag, but a close second is the Maine Beach tote or the Hawaii Weekender.

I LOVE these purses, it's such a fun idea to have one for each state. My favorite is the Hawaii Weekender. I think the website is user friendly. My only suggestion would be to also have the bags divided into categories. For example, if I was looking for a clutch I could select that style and see what the options are.
Becca C, Texas

Robinc said...

I love the Louisiana Market Sac as well as the Maine Companion. I like the LA Sac because it is casual yet sleek at the same time.

I have seen this site before and love the creativity of the bags! Other than the Lousiana bag, I love the Hawaii weekender and the North Carolina Kitty Tote! The site is VERY shopper friendly, very easy to get around and see what you want!

What a creative idea! The product photos are great...very clear! My homestate is Pennsylvania, so I wonder what bag might show up to represent the Keystone State! I love the Market Sac for its size and color. The info about the states is a nice extra!

I love the Louisiana Market sac... looks like a winner to me. Your website is wonderful and easy to navigate. I especially liked reading how you got started.
After reading that I decided that the Hawaii weekender bag was my fav. Brought me back to when I visited there as a teenager.

My favorite was the Maine Beach Tote. I found the site pretty user friendly. I did try to click on the Washington DC bag but it wasn't an active link. I did get a popup telling me that it was coming soon. For consistency's sake, I wouldn't show the bag, I'd just put the Coming Soon window up like the others...No biggie, though.

Very clever! Hope I win!

The bags are very cute and the website is easy to browse. What about Michigan? That is where we are living now and I would love to tell people I have the Michigan bag.

I really like your site - it was easy to navigate which is extremely important... Although I love the LA Market Sac for its roominess - I think the Hawaii bag is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! Thanks for the entry opp!

This website is very user friendly. Ther isn't anything I would change. I like the Maine Companion bag because it is bigger but not too big and it has lots of pockets. When you have kids, pockets are always nice, at least for me!

The site was shopper friendly, I had no trouble with that! Although I was a little bummed there was no Michigan bag - you'll have to let me know when that shows up! I had a hard time choosing a favorite, these are so cute and innovative!! I love Hawaii Weekender and Vermont Sledder the best, but the Alaska Trapper was a VERY CLOSE third.
Thanks for the offer!

That would be my sisterinlaw Meagan as the first commenter..I thought her new job would slow her down, but I am wrong....How does a person get to be a #1 commenter?

Love the site. My name is Alice G. I am in TN. My favorite bag was the Maine one...I like the colors and pattern, and it looks big enough to hold all a mommy's stuff.

As for my favorite bags: Hawaii Weekender, Florida Beach tote, Utah Sport Tote and Louisiana Market Sack. Oh and also the Alaska Trooper. Ahh..let the buying begin! My husband will never forgive you. hehe Thanks!!!

I love the Maine Beach Tote, and find the site very user-friendly. I love the "last seen" part of the description and that each bag has a distinct personality.

Wisconsin Porter is so cool! I've never seen anything like it.

Pretty much every question I could ask was answered on the website. When each state's bag would be out. Done. How to contact them. Done. Views of each bag in every color. Done. Way to go, y'all!

Jenna Marie said...

This is such a fun idea! I love the saying at the top about you "state of mind"... So catchy! The website was very easy to navigate... and such cute things. It was hard for me to pick my favorite.. So I picked a top three...

The Maine Companion: I definitely need all those pockets! It would make my life so much easier.

The Louisiana Market Bag:I LOVE the little satchel it comes with to bring me good luck- I need all I can get!

&The Hawaii Weekender: Those buckles and handles are just too cute!

Thanks for showing all of us!

Cute site and cute bags! I love the hawaii weekender, I could use another weekends or 15 in Hawaii! I can't wait to see what you do for the Idaho bag (thats where I'm from!)

Natalie said...

That was a lot of fun; I got a real kick out of the four CA bags in the sneak peak area - they just seemed so... perfect! My favorite is (and not just 'cause I'm from there) the NC Kitty Tote. I think the site is easily accessible, from a shopper's perspective; I especially appreciated the close-up shots. -Natalie B., currently residing in CA

Samantha said...

My favorite bag is the Maine Companion, although I really like the Alaska one too. It seems shopper friendly at this point, but when more bags are added, it will be nice to have a search function that can search by color, size, function, etc. (Maybe there is already one and I missed it!)

Love this bag! Site was easy to get around and all of the bags are so cute. I love the Maine bag and the matching one!!! The LA bag is very 'multi-use' though

I like a bunch of them....Colorado Lodge Tote, Mississippi Brunch Bag, Maine Companion...Can't wait to see a bag for GA!

Mark & Aup said...

My favorite was the Alaska Trapper bag, so cute. I thought the site was shopper friendly, my only selection would be to have the link to get the bags on shopping on the main page and the about information on the side, so that way when so gets to the site they instantly see the bags and can start shopping.

How cool! I found the site easy to use. The "bikini" bags made me giggle, but for something I'd actually use, the Maine companion looks awesome!!!
