Now I am enjoying selling my products on Etsy. I love doing special orders and have done several for luggage tags. I have made luggage tags for bridal showers, thank you gifts, luggage tags for a destination wedding for the guests attending and for special out of town guests who attended a wedding. I can customize many of the items in my store. If you have a special request, just ask and I may be able to make it for you.
