When Sally Bartz of Halsea and Mindy Gayer of Cotton Idea Studio decided to team up and open their businesses under one roof, I thought it was genius. With Sally's travel bags in the front and Mindy's stationary and accoutrement's in the back, the two entrepreneurs share customers, store hours and often package their items together to make gift giving an easy grab-n-go kind of thing.
Jan Norman of the Orange County Register picked up on their story and just wrote a great feature about it, complete with photos. Check it out here:http://jan.freedomblogging.com/2009/06/14/money-saver-two-shops-in-one/15887/sally-bartz/
While you are checking out the magazine, flip to Paula's Picks where she features Halsea's roller duffel, cosmetic bag and small make up bag so you can "travel with style".
Thanks, Teri Freeman!

Are you kidding me?! How AMAZING is this Weekend Today story about Budget Travel for Halsea, the beach chic travel bag company featured?! Is Lester really standing right there with his face next to the Halsea label? Is the Halsea roller suitcase in almost every shot? I love how the suitcase pops off of the screen with its blue crab print outside and pink-lined inside!
The fabulous gals at Real Simple (Yes, Carly Zipp- we are talking about you!) are way too good to us!
Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
PS - Halsea is offering a special on the Roller Suitcase featured- it is only $195!! Now is the time to take advantage of that deal because it won't last forever!
