Flipped for Flipped Bird

Even in Hawaii the Flipped Bird has a presence, albeit a presence of one, but does it really matter? I say “No” because that is how word of mouth travels even if it has to cross the Pacific Ocean to do it (remember “Finding Nemo” – okay if you have a child under the age of 10).

Anyway, to my lost point is this: the girls at the Coach Store on Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki, HI – the equivalent of Madison Ave in NYC, all know who Flipped Bird is and honestly, I think it is only a matter of time before this uber cool tote/bag takes flight to destinations unknown. And you know what? This is what the American Dream is all about. The American Dream is eco-friendly because it involves a local entrepreneur who uses their influence and connections to perpetuate a good or service to others. The American Dream usually starts in a backyard similar to yours or a basement or garage. And yes, sometimes in the very end, the local company goes BIG TIME and markets around the globe, and you know what? We should Flippin’ Be Happy for that American Dreamer who did it!

And in this case this is one American Dreamer who not only is working the dream, but is also giving back to her community. Flipped Bird recently made a special (I say commemorative) bag for a local friend and sister-gal-pal in pink ribbons “my boobs tried to kill” breast cancer survivor chick who, as it happens, is doing the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Team Hope Chest received  20% of the proceeds from these adorable, festive bags.

Now that’s something to “Feel Good” about!

So I say: “Marci – you go girl! And thank-you for giving me a simple piece of fashion to just Be Flippin’ Happy to carry around :)”
