The clutch I had made couldn’t be more perfect! Valerie was wonderful to work with, creating a lovely lavender purse that I will have with me at my son’s wedding. It was customized to be the perfect size and color. I was kept in the loop every step of its creation. I love it!

Fast shipping and great service. I bought this for my friend 's daughter as a Christmas gift and she loves it. One of the best shopping experiences ever.

About

Bags, Bags and More Bags

I was teaching a knitting class to students at the elementary school where my own children used to go. We made some really nice felted bags together and I was inspired to make some more bags for myself. It was fun and creative and used up some of my embarrassingly large stash of yarn as well. I decided the bags needed some adornment and used some of my own jewelry and buttons to spice things up.

Soon I had a large collection of bags and started collecting vintage brooches and buttons to embellish and add style and uniqueness to each bag.

Now the stash was a bit smaller, but the bags were taking over, so I gave a few away as gifts. Whenever people saw them, they encouraged me to sell them. And now here they all are on Etsy!

My good friend and photographer, Barbara Schmick, volunteered to photograph each of my bags, and we got my teenage daughter to model for us. You can see Barbara's work at www.berkshirevisions.com.
