Ok. I don’t know how to explain my irrational adoration for my zippers that finally came today. Despite them taking a month to get to me and not contacting me because there was a problem, I’m still pretty happy with Zipperstop.com. Why? Check this:
This is a 32 inch separating zipper in navy with an amazing brass tone and the ginormous pull. It was $4.75 from them. I’m going to use it on the Weekender bag (shortened to non separate). I think what’s got me so stoked is that this looks like the kind of zipper you would find on a high end bag. Sturdy, nice color, great pull. No more Coats and Clark for me I say! Below is the photo next to their ‘handbag’ zipper. Both have longer pulls.
Yep. It’s me an Zipperstop from now on. They did FedEx my order to me and I received it two days after I called them. So, I’ll definitely use them again. They have the 2 way separating zipper I’ve been dreaming of for a jacket that is like 30th on my list of things to sew.
My one purchase from the craft show today was this way cool yard stick from a furniture maker. It’s made from cherry wood and is about 1/2 inch thick. Super sturdy and kind of pretty.
Ah, also, I now officially have my own domain. Just type in MissCeliesPants.com (you don’t even need the ‘www’) and you’ll wind up here.
