I was so excited to find a vintage Tumi briefcase as I prefer the look but was terribly disappointed to find unsightly stains in two of the four compartments that were not described in the listing. The seller had described it with glowing comments by saying "this briefcase is in excellent condition". After several emails and pictures, seller refused my request for a refund and ended up accusing me of purposely damaged the product. I'm still shocked at that comment. Buyer beware for not all descriptions of excellence come with the standard one would expect. It’s just bad karma.

Again, another sweet little bag for during those times when a larger bag is too much. Didn't take long to arrive. Well packaged. Much thanks!

About

Smart, Stylish & Handcrafted Leather Handbags & Accessories

I've been designing since I was old enough to hold a crayon, a needle and thread or a pair of scissors. Growing up, my father was my inspiration. He made designing interiors look like fun and brought out a passion in me that evolved into a multifaceted career.

I've had no formal training but that has never stopped me from pursuing the intricacies of design in all forms. Handbags came into the picture when I couldn't find one that was simple, lightweight and not huge.

Today, I love the zen-like focus it takes to create a handbag or wallet. I'm fascinated by how a simple skin of leather can be transformed into a functional and beautiful product.

Inspiration often comes from the shape of an object or the smooth feel of a piece of leather. Occasionally, I'll create a handbag in a dream state and attempt to sketch it when I awaken. My sketches are pathetic. I'm much more a hands-on doer.

I believe that your handbag should be as unique as you are. My Los Angeles home-studio is smoke-free and pet-free. I welcome visitors.

    My career as a Production Designer led me down many creative paths and taught me that there is no limit to the definition of design. I love creating, whether it is a handbag, a movie set or a piece of furniture.
