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, not their real names. For myself, I chose the name Sprocket, who was my all-time favorite kitty. In 2007, I attended the first Phil Spector trial during which I started Trials & Tribulations. I decided to keep writing as Sprocket so that my earlier readers would know it was me. While I write under a pen name, I use my real name in court and while reporting.
In January 2011, based on my track record of independent reporting, the Los Angeles County Superior Court officially recognized me as a member of the media.
In between my frequent trips to the downtown courthouse, I also have a small seasonal sewing business, Betsy Ross Linens. In my spare time I enjoy gardening and reading.
