www.irishbagcompany.com is the website.
The products are fairly simple to make, a mildly experienced craftsperson can easily do the work. I’ve designed all the patterns and such to be made in a timely fashion for production.

-Shop list of stockists of my products. Years of contacts and mailing lists.
-Email list of prior customers and of prospects (and a bit of guidance on how to run this). I’ll do a massive email blitz prior to transfer to let everyone know about the exciting news of a new owner.
-A clone of the website for you to run (I use Shopify) with this comes a pile of professionally shot product photos, prior ads/ad campaigns in national and international magazines and the hardcopies of all those.
-The URL/Facebook and other social media accounts associated with the business.
-Training, negotiated as to location, time and details.
-Reasonable followup calls/support (negotiated).
Please email me at email@example.com for further details. Note, this sale is only the bag business and not my other strap/sling/accessory biz.
Pricing: I’ll be offering a few different levels of support and pricing for this business.
#1: Spendy, mainly because I’ve spent the past two decades and a half building a client base, I’ll also have to pay taxes on all this which reduces my net.
#2 Affordable, We can negotiate a fair price, you pay me with a genuine paycheck from your company with all taxes paid (Fed, State, Local, etc).
#3 Really affordable, a pile of cash. This can be very affordable for the right person. I’ll help you load everything and get the URLs, Websites and such transferred over in your name on the same day as the sale/closing. I can get your trained here in a few days. If you have previous leather working skills and a bit of web based computer experience, I can get you sorted quickly and efficiently with minimal downtime. Really cool swappage plus cash considered.
Note: I’ll be asking for a signed non-disclosure agreement somewhere along the way and also ask for a letter of credit from a bank/lender to weed out the tire-kickers.
