Etsy Shop of the Month: Eilquinn Personalized Tote Giveaway (closed)

Tote Full ViewA few weeks ago I found myself beginning yet another school year and my fifth year teaching. I couldn’t believe summer was already over and another first day of school was upon me. As with past years before heading back to school I went on a mini shopping spree. In order to properly start a new school year I believe you really need a few new outfits, pairs of shoes, and other necessary accessories. It’s nice to start the year fresh and new.

For the past year I have been searching for the perfect school tote. My search began this time last year, but I never found something I absolutely had to have. After many fruitless searches I put of the purchase, and put it off, which caused a very unorganized school year. After months of carrying everything I needed loose in my arms day in and day out of school I made it my mission to find the perfect bag before I went back to school.

Which brings me to the lovely Etsy shop, Eilquinn. During one of deep Etsy tote bag searches I was getting tired of scanning page after page until something caught my attention, made my eyes stop, and my mouse click for a better view. Before I knew it I had favorited three of her bags and looked at every single thing in her shop. The only question that came to mind after my shop visit was how hadn’t I discovered her earlier?

I e-mailed Eileen, owner of Eilquinn and tote bag creator, right away and began setting up my custom order. I went back and forth about color, style, whether to add a doilie or not. I took every tiny custom option into account, after all this was a decision a year in the making. Through the entire process Eileen was so helpful. She sent me pictures of how the different options would look and quickly answered my many, many e-mails.

Finally I decided on a design, letter color, burlap color, and to add a doilie; but I still had no idea which lace color to pick. After going back and forth I finally sent her my order and payment with three lace colors I wanted her to pick from. I was over decision making and figured she would have the most informed opinion. I eagerly awaited my bag and when it came I was over the moon. Eileen selected a lovely yellow, which was perfect. In the back of my mind this was what I wanted, but was worried the yellow would be too bright, some how Eileen must have known all of this and made it exactly right.

I use my tote every single day, filling it with heavy books, my laptop, and my change of clothes for daily softball practice. It has held up beautifully and I don’t remember my unorganized life pre-tote bag.
