Update: The #1 biggest issue my wife is trying to deal with is how to ramp up her business to larger scale production. Nordstroms and Nieman-Marcus are interested in her bags, but its just a whole 'nother level of volume. Turns out one of our Coyote readers addresses the issue of growing fashion businesses and manufacturing with her own blog here.
