I came across your article today and I would like to know if you personlly have used both versions, the cheap and Thirty One? I’ve been with the company 6 years now and have to say every penny I’ve spent has been worth it. I still have the first two Large a Utility Totes I bought 6 years ago and use them. Just because it’s cheaper that doesn’t mean it is better. Thirty Ones products actually hold up pretty well. I admit like any other company we do have some problems from time to time but they are good at helping customers fix these issues. You have a 90 day warrrenty and sometimes even after that they help. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Q_JoX5lteKU/TuEoID_mDvI/AAAAAAAAC0U/MMY6XLAW4Dg/s400/Essie+nail+color.png
I am SO glad I found your site! I like Thirty -One and have purchased a couple items from them. Although I like the items they do seem a bit flimsy for the very expensive price you pay. Also, I was never impressed with the way my shipments would arrive….the boxes would always look like they have been kicked around a warehouse a few times! I was actually even considering becoming a consultant for this company but as I said I’m so thankful to have found your page. I absolutely LOVE Amazon, it is my go to and I am going to check out some of the totes, bags, etc there. THANK YOU!!!
I have been buying thirty one products for years. I have always loved them, given them as gifts! I have spent a lot of money with this company. My last carry bag that I bought a couple years ago is falling apart inside. They won't stand behind their product any more. They make a cheaper product now. Very sad, that profit comes before excellence. I will never buy them again. No reflection on my sales person, she is wonderful. It is definitely not her fault they will not honor their product. I estimate that I have spent upward of $1000,00 with this company over the years. They have lost a good customer over the refusal to stand behind their product.
I have been obsessed with Thirty-One products for a few years now, and I love the styles and many of their patterns. The only downside is that the products are made in (sadly) China, and that strongly disappoints me (especially for the kinds of prices they charge). If Thirty-One was made here in the States, then they might would get more business and support. However, I own several Thirty-One items that have been really good (and still use them quite a bit). I especially love their zipper pouches (both small and large) and Large Utility Totes. A few of my items have developed flaws (two of my LUTs have cracks on the insides and a couple of my purses have zippers that have turned rusty-looking), but it's nothing very serious. That being said, I will continue to purchase from them. Just wish they made their products in the U.S.A.... https://i.ytimg.com/vi/9mLfpBNlz3A/hqdefault.jpg
I don't think I could live without all my thirty-one bags! I have a big weekender bag that works perfectly for a carry-on bag or quick weekend away with my hubs. I have a duffel bag that holds a change of clothes if I have somewhere to go right after work. The gym bag is amazing because it has a compartment in the bottom for my sneakers! I swear by the tons of funds wallet because if you put on the purse strap, it's the absolute most perfect small crossbody. I'm waiting on the new lakeside tote to arrive. Our vacation to Isle of Palms, SC is in a month and a half, and I can't wait to use it as my beach bag. If you don't own a thirty-one bag yet, get one! They're a bit on the expensive side, but absolutely worth every penny. So many options for so many different uses! https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-TPkLEPQjDQw/To0b5B6hqoI/AAAAAAAAEK8/dVddCvccT0s/s1600/Coach-new-madison-leather-lindsey-satchel-1.jpg

I purchased 6 of the around town totes because I adored this particular bag. I used each one gently and when not I use I stored them in my closet I noticed the other day that every single strap piping has literally disintegrated! I cannot use these bags and because it has been some time since I've purchased them I am literally out $100's of dollars. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_cEoNuA5vQOI/TKUC3NRua2I/AAAAAAAAB_c/sVfjIs-F2oI/s1600/jewelry+roll+collage.jpg
I am very pleased with the studio thirty-one clutch! This particular one is a Hostess Exclusive- but the classic and modern body style studio 31 purses can be purchased by anyone and are the same concept. Option of length, texture, & color of your purse strap, the flap, and body style lets you be your own designer! The quality is comparable to that of a coach or vera bradely yet not as large of a price tag. I personally prefer the simple yet classic elegance of a script or swirl monogram embroidery. I would absolutely reccomend to family & friends! http://i.walmartimages.com/i/p/00/09/35/73/97/0009357397049_500X500.jpg
I just had a party with Monica Nickerson in West Allis, WI. She was the nicest, quickest to respond ...and most helpful women ever! She brought so many fun things to the show and was interested in what we needed. The show was perfect getting us ready for the holidays. I received the order and everything was beautiful! I’ll definitely be hosting again with Monica, she’s delightful and the products are amazing!
