Thanks for the replies so far! Your response made me think of another question. When you say a minimum of 10 requests, does that mean personally for TPF? Or just in general?Hi, runner22, and welcome!
It appears that no style is completely out of the question, provided that Jackie has the leather available and we get a minimum of 10 requests for the exact same bag. Jackie said she would be willing to stretch it to a minimum of 6 or 7 bags, but understanding that bespoke orders cost her money as well as slow down production, it probably makes sense that this is the direction she is going in.
Jackie did say she would take into account whether or not a storefront is interested in the same style (in that case, there wouldn't have to be a minimum number fulfilled by individuals; for example "4 for a store, 6 for individual requests"), but I think the 10 requests meant 10 individual requests - whether they be from us here on tPF or tPF + other individuals. I think the key is 1.all the deposits are made (generally 30% of the bag cost) 2. the hardware, leather style/color, style of bag are identical. On the BE forum, we generally think in terms of "us" (tPF members) because we do so much chatting about particular styles/leather/colors and things move so fast...but I imagine that if 5 tPF ladies rounded up 5 of their buddies and everyone wanted the same bag, Jackie wouldn't have a problem with it, as long as conditions #1 an #2 were met!Thanks for the replies so far!
