Tote

Totes are a popular style among a 40+ demographic. Their understated style yet personalized location makes them a fabulous gift.   Totes are available with a 1/2" leather strap or a rolled leather strap -- in two drop lengths.  They are lined with a zippered pocket and a magnetic close.

"Barbara I've been meaning to email you and tell you how many compliments I got on your bag. I was in Washington DC if you weeks ago and someone stopped me on the elevator. I was in Macy's today in Warwick and the clerk wanted to know where I got it from. It's awesome and I'm really enjoying it. Thank you"

Sheeply Chic

Sheeply Chic is a collection of colorful and unique felted wool bags. These bags won the RI Monthly "Best of" Editors Pick in 2014. 

Most are wool, some are a combination of wool and silk or wool and alpaca.  Each one is knitted, felted and shaped by me.   Care and cleaning is surprisingly easy. Felting is a wet process so soaking or even hand washing a bag will insure that it stays as lovely as the day it was purchased.

These bags come in almost any color -- most popular are neutral (greys, and browns), equally as popular are brights (orange, plum, strawberry, ).  Just give me a call and I'll tell you what I have in stock or what is in process.

Cowboy Carry-All

This handbag is named because of it's handle - horse bit referred to as a "broken bit".  Very popular among equestrians and non-equestrians.  It doesn't have a particular demographic appeal.  The bit is more comfortable over the shoulder than it looks, however I have offered a strap option, which has been popular.  Comes with a stiff bottom so it doesn't sag.  Bits come in nickel or black iron.

Colorado Carry-All

 A medium size bag with broad appeal.  Although many people ask for some organization - pocket, etc., it doesn't seem to effect the ability make a sale.   Most popular color combo Moss with either light brown or dark brown leather.
