New "Mini mini bag" for mp3 players

Bonjour, I'm very happy to show you a prototype of my new Jupiter Freedom "mini-mini bag"!! I had many comments over the years about developping a bag just for mp3 players, for kids and something to wear at the wrist or ankle or to hide under a shirt, skirt or pants.

I've put much thoughts into this and I came up with the perfect little size bag to address these needs. It is much thinner and a little smaller than the one I currently have in my collection. (see pictures) and it holds the minimum.

Here are the differences:

Mini-mini can store: keys, lipstick, money, cards, small mp3 player

Armbag can store: keys, lipstick, money, cards, any mp3 player (including iPod)/camera/cell phone (including iPhone, any PDAs). This bag also includes a removable change purse.

I will let you know when is will be for sale (probably around Oct). Please let me know what you think at

Be hands-free,

NEW mini-mini bag

Jupiter Freedom at Artscape in Baltimore

Bonjour, What an awsome weekend at Baltimore's Artscape. It was my first Show in the US. Since this Show was in the same city as just moved in, it made sense for me to do it. I met lots of interesting people and sold lots of armbags ;-)

Again, I received many positive comments:
"This is the updated version of the fanny pack"
"What a clever idea!"
"I just lost my iPhone. I could have used this."
"I'm tired of bulky iPod armbands. Like this stylish Jupiter Freedom armband."

We sold many bags to men so I NEED to come up with a masculine line. Men just love the idea of carrying their Blackberry around their arm when doing sports instead of their pockets or on a clip belt. I will make one for my November Shows...

Here are some pictures of the event ;-)

BTW - My website is up and running again ;-)
Be hands-free

On the Road

As some of you heard, I moved to Baltimore a few months ago but still produce my hands-free bags in Quebec. It requires more effort on the logistic side (especially customs...) but it helps in developping the US market. I'm will be doing a few Craft Shows in Baltimore, Chicago and New York and have a few stores holding my bags. I have to visit Montreal every three months to go get more supplies for the next production but it a trip where I can mix work and pleasure by seeing friends.

Today for instance, I'm going to see a new production facility next to Victoriaville to see if they can make my bags. I need to have higher volume as I will sell more and more bags in stores as of 2010. I would also want to sell my hands-free bags in Las Vegas' hotels. I think they would be great for visitors as they could safely wear the armbag to shows, when walking the Strip, shopping and keeping their chips handy, etc. The World is big and lots of opportunities. So I want to make sure I can deliver ;-)

Oh, before I forget, please join our Facebook group and Twitter page for special promos and up-to-date info ;-)

Talk to you soon,
