Whould you buy this?

I went on a leather working course in October and really loved it. I would now like to have a go at making leather goods and perhaps tying to sell them. The plan is to make handbags and purses from good quality leather and line them with tweed. The bags will be similar style to cartridge bags/traditional school satchels. My questions are:

Do you know of anything similar on the market?
If so who/what/where?
Would you be interested in buying products like this?
How much would you be willing to pay for a) bag, b)purse/wallet?
Would the option of having bespoke and personalised products appeal?
Where would you go/look if you wanted to buy something like this?

From my initial research I can't see anyone that makes anything similar. It takes a minimum of a day to make each bag as all the cutting and stitching is done by hand, therefore I think I may have to charge about £100 but am not sure if this is too much.

Any feedback greatly appreciated.

I think its a great idea! Not sure how much you should charge though! And personalised idea is great! I'd buy it, if I could afford it! Are you thinking of doing this as a hobby or a full time job?? x

Just a hobby really but it would be nice to make some money out of it as well. I'm getting all the kit for christmas and have already bought some leather which is left over from Mulberry.

That sounds good. Perhaps you should make a few and then advertise them.

I made one on the course which isn't lined or anything but will try and get some pics on here. Everyone who has seen it loves it which is kind of why I think maybe I should have a go at selling them.
