Featured Shop of the Week: EchoLand Bags

EchoLand Bags is our featured shop this week, and we are very happy to share this great business with you.
EchoLand Bags
EchoLand sells one-of-a-kind, handmade wristlets, clutches, bags, and purses. EchoLand Bags make great gifts and are all handcrafted in a pet-free, smoke-free environment, and they even do custom orders!

Owner Sarah Defibaugh says, "One of my first sewing projects as a kid was this awesome 80′s pink lace sleeping bag for my doll, so I guess you could say that bags have been my thing for awhile.  Currently,  am obsessed chic fabric and designing really useful, functional, bags that are totally unique.  Opening the shop has given me the opportunity to connect with SO many amazing people.  The name of my shop is a shout out to my grandparent’s farm in Canterbury, CT. They have both passed away, but I love that their legacy lives on.  Oh, and creating my own designs gives me the freedom to name my bags after my friends, which is also super fun.  I am blessed to have the opportunity to work at something I absolutely love to do!"

When asked about the challenges of having her own small business, Sarah answered, "I think balancing personal time and business time is probably my biggest hurdle.  I'm the type of person who gets really excited about something and wants to be immersed in it all the time.  I really have to make sure I make time for my primary jobs--mom and wife :-)"

EchoLand recently added the EchoLand Kids line, which includes purses and backpacks in fun designs & fabrics. Sarah is also a blogger, and has two categories in which she writes: Loving Life & Loving Biz. I personally enjoy her Gratitude Project posts.
