Mysterious Sale

Since its launch in June, Mysterious has sold dozens of fairy tale inspired bags and wallets to people around the world. Happy customers write us to express their reaction to the quality and presentation of our products. Here’s just one example:

The bag itself was just… Wow. I am blown away by the quality. The friends I’ve all shown it to have marveled at it as well. I was hesitant to spend so much on a handbag but as soon as it arrived and I started unboxing it at work, I knew I’d made a fantastic investment. The leather feels absolutely amazing and the lining is every bit as wonderful as it looked in the pictures, if not, better.

One thing I loved about the way it all came together was the mysterious protective bag (The QUALITY of this protective bag, too!) and the big heavy box. I’ve never really been one to purchase high-end leather goods or accessories, but I imagine that if I bought a D&G or Louis Vuitton bag, it would come with similar protection and storage accessories. 10/10.

Inspired by all the positive feedback, Yeni and I have added two new bags to the shop, and have plans for additional bags, wallets, scarves, and umbrellas to be added soon.

Time for a little celebration!

Let’s celebrate Halloween and the addition of these new products with a sale! From October 26th until Midnight on the 31st all items in the Mysterious shop are 10% off.

The Mysterious Vorpal Wallet

I had no idea what to expect when I decided to open an online store with my girlfriend, fashion designer Yeni Zhang. We’d talked for ages about finding a way to combine our talents – her fashion and design skills with my story writing and marketing abilities. We decided on “Mysterious” – a place where people can collect unique fashion items inspired by my twisted fairy tale interpretations.

The first product we offered, The Vorpal Bag, was a huge hit with collectors around the world. In less than 2 months we saw 160 of the 200 limited edition bags vanish like a Cheshire Cat. And feedback from customers couldn’t be more positive. Here’s an example from Daniel S. in the USA:

“Just letting you know that I received my Vorpal Bag today. The packaging was great, it seems like a lot of care was taken to keep the bag in pristine shape. I thought the white box was handsome, and appreciated the canvas bag as well. All the protruding metal parts of the bag were covered so as to prevent damage, which was a nice touch.

All the stitching was perfect. I looked all through the bag with an eye towards that but couldn’t find a single problem stitch. It really speaks well towards the professional skills of the crafters that this bag came out so well. I could easily see a bag of this quality and aesthetic design being worth $300 or more. If you would, let Yeni know that I’m very pleased with the bag and I feel like it is worth more than the price I paid for it. It is obvious that it was produced with a lot of love.”

The next product we introduced was The Vorpal Wallet. Sales of this high-quality leather collectible wallet have been insane! In less than a week we’ve sold over 125 of the 200 that were produced. If you want to collect one of these limited edition wallets, you’d better move fast!

Very excited by the positive reaction we’ve had from collectors around the world. Now we’re scrambling to get more bags, wallets, and accessories designed and added to the Mysterious shop. We had no idea these first items would go so fast or that this side project would be so much fun!

What’s next? Yeni’s just put finishing touches on designs for a smaller, less expensive Vorpal Purse. We’re also working on design ideas for a line of umbrellas and scarves featuring twisted fairy tale prints. There’s also a Red Riding Hood themed “Big Teeth Bag” in the works!

We’d love to hear your feedback. What kind of items would you like to see added to Mysterious? Let us know by sending a message via the Mysterious Facebook page, or Mysterious shop page.
