Here is a review of a Market Bag recently purchased on Etsy. "Love this bag! Very high quality and stunningly beautiful. I fell in
love with it when I saw it online and it's even better in person.
Shipping was very prompt. I would highly recommend ordering from Betsy.
**Update** Now that I've had the bag a few weeks, I can say I'm even
more in love with it! It was supposed to be a knitting bag but instead
it has become my every day bag. The pockets inside are amazing and hold a
cosmetic bag, a wrap that I take with me everywhere because I"m always
cold, and my bulky sunglasses case. In the main compartment I have a
pack of baby wipes and my small purse. So I bring my bag with me when I
leave the house, then to run into a store or restaurant I just grab my
purse out of the bag. And there is still plenty of room in the bag for
any extras I get while I'm out. Love this bag" Cindy B.
I’ve had a life-long interest in true crime ever since, in my late teens, I read the Manson books, Helter Skelter and The Family. The first trial I attended in person was the Robert Blake murder trial in 2005. I wrote about my experience on Internet crime forums, where many people were interested in the Blake case and debating it. All the participants used Internet handles. For myself, I chose the name Sprocket, my all-time favorite kitty. In 2007, I attended the first Phil Spector trial and started Trials & Tribulations. I kept writing as Sprocket. While I write under a pen name, I use my real name in court and while reporting.
In January 2011, the Los Angeles County Superior Court officially recognized me as a member of the media.
I also have a small seasonal sewing business, Betsy Ross Linens. I enjoy gardening and reading.
In 2019 I stopped my public service covering the LA County Superior Court and entered a new career path.
