Happy Wednesday, everyone! I want to start by thanking everyone for their kind words and thoughts on Monday. It means a lot to me to have genuine, caring people in my life.
I am so excited to share our April sponsor with you today: Bertie’s Closet! Specializing in handmade, lightweight, affordable sleeves and cases for all of your electronics, Bertie’s Closet goes way beyond just function. I mean, these things are GORGEOUS. Would it be weird of me to go out and buy an iPad today so that I had something to put into one of these beauties?
Every item in the shop is handmade by the shop’s owners, Jeff and Bertie. To tell you a little more about how they got started and how they run their business, I will turn it over to Jeff!
We both quit our day jobs (software engineer and production assistant/odd part time job worker) and now work full time from home in Los Angeles, California. Bertie’s Closet is a handmade shop for laptop sleeves, iPad sleeves, and gadget accessories, and May will mark the completion of our fourth year in business. Before we started in 2009, we purchased a netbook that came without a sleeve or anything for protection. So we made a netbook sleeve, and a friend suggested we try selling them. Both of us, Jeff and Bertie, are now home everyday, making espresso and/or kale blueberry smoothies in the morning, making sleeves during the day, and packaging it all up with a handwritten thank you (Bertie’s “Thank you” looks a lot nicer than mine). Everything is made to order in our home, and it usually takes 2-5 days before shipment (though we do our best to ship everything out ASAP). We sell to everyone and ship worldwide.
You absolutely must go check out their shop to see more of these lovely sleeves. My personal favorite? It is a toss up for me between the adorable clothesline (and the owl flying off with someone’s unmentionables!) and the gorgeous brown herringbone with lace leaves.
A massive “THANK YOU!!” to Bertie’s Closet for sponsoring Our Cozy Cubbyhole this month. It is always amazing to collaborate with nice people that do stunning work! :)
Which is your favorite sleeve from Bertie’s Closet? :)
