Getting Lighter and Lighter

Lightening up as the weather grows warmer means lighter clothes, lighter shoes, and certainly lighter bags.  Shortly after I can't stand the thought of socks, I can't stand the thought of lugging a heavy bag either!  Piece Work has a solution:  this summer, instead of carrying everything with you all of the time, do spring cleaning of your bag, and transfer the essential items to one of our small shoulder bags.  And then, to make things even lighter, transfer the most essential of the essential to one of our Ultra Slims.  This way, when you leave the house, you can put the Ultra-Slim with your driver's license, a couple of credit cards, and a few bills plus your gym card inside your small bag (which might also be holding your phone, keys, and a pen a stick of gum).  Then when you get to the gym or the park where you plan to take a walk, slip just the Ultra Slim in your pocket and hide the bag with your other things in your car.

To encourage you to try our Light Combo, if you order a Small Shoulder Bag and an Ultra Slim, we'll slip a $3 refund into the pocket of the Ultra Slim, put the Ultra Slim inside the Small Bag, and ship the two to you in one light package.  This offer is  good for spring cleaning time only, March 20 - June 21.

Since making our abstract black/white/gray small shoulder bags for Laura in Brooklyn, we've been on a kick of making abstract mostly-black wallets.  We love the way the most prosaic and uninteresting copy ("Tarter Control for Senior Dogs" or "Salt and Black Pepper"), when cut into unreadable pieces turns into great abstract design motifs.  A sort of zooming in on the fontness of the text.

The three wallets here are all currently available, but we predict they won't be around for long!  You can order them on any wallet page, but specify "black" as the color and write us a note on the Paypal page or an email to our gmail account saying your first, second, and third choices among the three.  We are also happy to custom design an abstract wallet (or any wallet) for you if you email us describing what you want.  Some people even mail us bags that they want us to use.  If you want to do that, email us, and we'll send you our shipping address.  We hope you love the fonts as much as we do!
