Announcement   Phantazmagorium...A realm that exists somewhere between imagination and dreams,a place where inspiration becomes reality, and where fashion seamlessly merges with fantasy. Phantazmagorium is here to offer a unique shopping experience where our bags proclaim your personality and individuality using the most simple statement piece: the humble handbag. Our goal is to create bags that are wearable in the day to day world without waiting for the next "event" to come along.

All of our bags in the Phantazmagorium are carefully designed with great attention to quality materials and detailing. Each is worked by hand into a singular masterpiece, an intriguing artifact you won't find anywhere else. They are exclusive in materials and structure and will never again be reproduced.

We offer free shipping to all USA addresses via Priority Mail (usually just 3 business days). Like you, our collection is constantly evolving and changing and new bags are added often, so be sure to favor the shop so that we can instantly alert you whenever new creations are added via your Etsy home page.

Such a beautiful bag, I'm in love with it! Not much utility to it but I'm not sure that I care, it's so nice! The pictures really don't do it justice. Thank you so much!

About

The Transformation of Thought to Fabric

You are an original. It's only right to express yourself in what you wear to have one-of-a-kind accessories that tell the world who you are. We have all had times when we've wished that we weren't another brick in the wall fashion-wise. I'm here to be your personal anti-box store for interesting accessories.
I create everything individually by hand in my workshop without any other designers or manufacturers. I think the easiest wardrobe piece to promote our personal expression is the handbag. The realm of Steampunk in particular incorporates the rejection of 21st century consumerism and the bland mass-produced material goods of modern corporate culture. With that in mind, I never do duplicates out of the shop, with the exception of the basic shapes. I have seen fashion as a form or identity and escapism and believe we should surround ourselves with the things we love most. I love making funky, out-of-the-ordinary statement pieces that incorporate elements of Steampunk Gothic, and Victorian Era, but occasionally I like to offer an eclectic mix of ideas from nature, fantasy, Bohemian, and other themed bags that are placed into the "concept" category on the site. I want my bags to be interesting and ready to be brought into the real everyday world without being "costume-y".

I am so happy to be able to be here selling directly to my customers and being able to interact the way we do. I have sold my bags in retail shops with much success and have done wholesale orders for shops out of my lineup, but nothing compares to the one- on- one experience that I have had here in my individual sales.

In the future we will shortly be adding an overview of the shop process and an update on other links.

Thank you for taking the time to look around and come back again as you never know what you will find!

    Style can make us feel alive, separate us from the rest of humanity, inspire ourselves and those around us to create and spread beauty in this world. My goal in creating is to recapture a dream and make our everyday lives more fun and interesting.
