Saturday Sale - A Mother's Day Sale as a Tribute to My Mother

- God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. -  
Rudyard Kipling

Mother's Day is fast approaching, so I have been busy creating things that I think my late mother would have loved.  My passion for a good read and memories of my mother's collection of books have inspired me to create beautifully decorative Page Savers (bookmarks). I also fondly remember my mother's compulsion to obtain any cute bag she came across.  She loved both books and bags of all kinds so much so that she couldn't stop collecting them.  And she was quite the collector! Her collection of both would rival any library or fashion designers inventories! She had rooms full of books, and closets stuffed with bags for any and all occasions. 
This Mother's Day special is in honor of my late mother as I know that she would love to choose at least one of these bags to add to her collection, and would have needed several bookmarks to save her page in a few of the books she would be currently falling asleep to. :)

I have recently upgraded some of the bags in my shop so that they now all feature a little something special.  Now each bag has either beads, buttons, crocheted lace flowers, or liners to make each one unique. 

Based on traditional leatherbound, handstiched bindings of old which included ribbon to mark the page, the Page Savers are ideal bookmarks, magazine markers, etc. and look gorgeous hanging out of your favorite reading materials.

This Saturday's Sale is: "Bag and Bookmark Combo Special"

Simply buy any Purse or Pouch along with a Page Saver and get 30% off these items.  
Just contact me on etsy or zibbet and mention this blog and the Saturday Blog Shoppers Sale, and I will adjust the price in my store for you before you purchase.  If the Page Savers happen to be sold out, and you do wish to purchase, I do have others I will be posting early next week that you will be able to choose from, and I will honor this sale for you when you purchase the bag of your choice. Please contact me on Saturday if you are interested, and anytime if you have any questions!
This sale is good for Saturday, April 17th only, so be sure to contact me between midnight tonight and midnight Saturday!
I am excited to share this love of bags and books and offer this great special to my favorite online friends.  Happy shopping! And please check the SBS hub for other GREAT deals!

--And if anyone can recommend a great book for me to read next, when I can find the time, please feel free to suggest one in the comments. Thanks!--
