BUSINESS FOR SALE

ANN LACY BAGS

A CREATIVE CRAFT BUSINESS

I am considering retiring this year after ten years developing a sound viable craft enterprise.  From this solid foundation an more energetic person could expand and develop it into a very successful business.

It is very important to me that the opportunity is still afforded to crafters to continue to enjoy this wonderfully fulfilling craft and I would be more than willing to mentor the new owner of the business and continue to create new designs on a consultancy basis if desired.
