LaBosh Handbags are a true essence of Old Hollywood Glam. The bags are inspired by old vintages pieces mixed with unique leathers and fabrics. Thecolors are bold but yet soft. The bags are designed to be a true expression of ones self. LaBosh accessories make a great fashion statement no matter the occasion.

Hi Joyce! Major department stores are the most difficult. Not impossible, but very difficult. Mainly because it takes a tremendous amount of time - you start out with lower level buyers who have to present the collection to the higher level buyers and so on, until the merchandise managers decide on the product mix for the store. These stores tend to stay with collections on their "matrix" (the store's data base of vendors). Also it may not be worth it - these stores take money off the invoices if you don't follow their shipping directions exactly, and also if they have to mark down the merchandise in the stores. That being said, local stores of the majors like Saks and Neiman Marcus will have in store events where they bring in vendors to try out. (Neimans used to have "Golden Circle" events. They were exclusive shopping events for their VIP customers and they would bring in new vendors to present their collections).

I think your best option is to go into local boutiques and do a demonstration to the buyer. You can also offer to do a trunk show, where you bring product to the store and they have an event where you can demonstrate the product to their customers. I think your scarves are fantastic, but I am severly scarf-challenged, so I would definitely need training in wearing it. Buyers are often afraid of products like that because they can't explain it to their customers. So, to do a demonstration, or have an instruction book that is provided with each scarf, will go a long way to help sales and give buyers confidence in the product.
