TITLE: 77 Transitioning From Craft Fairs To Selling Online with Barbara Keen, All Day Bags


**Please remember to rate and review the podcast - it really helps others to find it.**

Today I am speaking to Barbara Keen, of All Day Bags. Barbara makes quality bags for people on the go, the colours of land and sky. Barbara uses UK based textiles - Harris Tweed and tartan from Scotland and Linton Tweed who have made textiles for Chanel for 100 years. Barbara makes a range of bags from tote bags for laptops and shopping, gadget bags so you don't leave your cable, mouse or battery behind, bags of lavender to ear bud bags.

We discussed how Barbara started making bags, her process and how she transitioned from selling at craft fairs to selling online during lockdown. Barbara takes a real pride in her product and process, and it was lovely to find out how she has evolved her business over the past year.

If you've been inspired to start a podcast in 2024 then I recommend my podcast host, Captivate. They were my top pick when I started 4 years ago because of how easy it was for a complete novice to get started. I’ve stuck with them because it’s still simple, they keep adding great new features (like the ability to share ads like these!) and it’s been so reliable.
