I am wanting to start a “side business” and have narrowed it down to 3 options: a) Gigi Hill Bags, b) 31 Gifts, or c) Vault Denim. I love the products from all 3 places, but would like opinions from you all. All 3 are home-party based shows where you can see/try the products and then place orders. In case you’ve never heard of any of them, I’ve included the websites and a couple product pics.
Gigi Hill is a company that makes high quality bags, totes, luggage and purses. They all come in a variety of prints. Prices range from $20-$255.
31 Gifts makes bags, totes, aprons, luggage, baskets, in a variety of prints. They also provide an embroidered personalization option too. Prices range from $6-$165.
Vault Denim is a company that sells name brand jeans such as Seven for All Mankind, Paper Denim and Cloth, Dylan George, 575, Citizens of Humanity, William Rast, Antik, J Brand, etc. Prices range from $48-$88.
So, which company do you think would be best? Which, if any, would you consider purchasing products from?

What would give you the most return for your time? I think that should be a pretty big consideration too. I like the second and third ones, although I think it would be hard to sell clothes at an at-home party without bringing EVERY size. I like the purses/totes in the second one better than the first, I could see myself buying those or buying them as gifts for friends.

I would personally be most likely to buy a pair of designer jeans from one of those parties. I have way too many bags and honestly am at a point in my life where I buy fewer but more expensive bags (as awful as it sounds, I cringe when someone buys me a bag as a present because I know I won’t use it and I don’t have space to store them).
But that’s just me, I think what you should do depends on your group of family and friends who you will inevitably start out selling to. Would they be willing to buy designer jeans? Do they wear bags with the patterns in the other two sites? Is that their style?
