Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 30, 2007

Grandma Gladys Brisson is 75 years young, a mother of eight, a grandmother of 17 and has just started her first internet business selling her custom hand-made gift bags (http://www. grandmagiftbags. com).

Completely frustrated with the decreasing attendance at trade shows, the increase of ecommerce on the internet and the constant nudging by her internet marketing expert grandson, Chris Brisson, to get her bags on the internet, she finally decided to move her Grandma Gift Bags business to the web.

She explains -- "Being 75, I was getting tired of packing up and traveling to the trade shows only to make enough money to cover my expenses. With the price of my materials rising, the cost of travel increasing and me getting younger by the day, I knew the internet was only viable solution."

Having started 13 years ago making custom hand-made only for friends and family, Grandma Gladys has modestly grown her small business through word of mouth, but has been unable to make a consistent income and therefore has had to work part-time as a care-taker. Using the power of the internet, she hopes to change that.

Having made well over 15,000 custom hand-made gift bags over the last 13 years -- Gladys has created and has refined the perfect, custom, cute, reusable and durable gift bags in the world.

"I put every last ounce of care and love into each and every bag. Each bag is made by me, in my beautiful house here in Delray Beach, FL, on my Singer sewing machine. It can't get any more hand-made than this."

Gladys is extremely excited to start her first internet business with the help and guidance of her grandson Chris. Chris explains, "I just want my grandmother to quit her job and continue to follow her passion -- making gift bags (http://www. grandmagiftbags. com). I just want her to have fun and not worry about her business at all. I'll be helping her manage her inventory, check her emails and orders and simply allowing her to live her life without the stress of a business. I just want her to be happy!"

Gladys explains, "My custom gift bags come in 4 sizes. I make tall wine gift bags, medium gift bags, small and extra small gift bags. They are perfect for any occasion and are a great for anyone."

Gladys feels very passionate about the gift bags she creates and is living proof that you're never too young to start your internet business.

Chris says, "I'm looking forward to helping my grandmother create a passive income on the internet. I'm elated to see her enjoy the rest of her years living life!"
