I'm always amazed by the craftsmanship of the artisans who sell on Etsy. I was perusing the handbag section the other day after getting a message from my BFF about an amazing bag store she'd found. I have been talking for weeks about how I need a new handbag, but instead of buying one, I've just pulled out older bags from the back of my closet. It works for a little while. The first day I use it, I feel proud of myself for not spending the money on a new bag when I have perfectly good ones in my closet. Then after a few days, I remember what it is about that bag that made me put it in the back of the closet to begin with. Maybe one of these days I'll actually take the time to find a new bag for myself.
Here are some beautiful handbags I found while browsing Etsy the other day:
Teal Calfskin Leather Shoulder and Satchel Bag, Paulina Carcach, $149
Genuine Italian Leather Tote, Chic Leather, $139
Artisan Leather Handbag, Chic Leather, $159
Baby Ballet Bag, Opelle Creative, $172
Slouchy Red Leather Messenger Bag, The Leather Store, $140
Caroline Brown Satchel Leather Bag, ekaa, $110
Potli Leather Shoulder Bag, Studio One Designs, $115
Happy purse shopping, everyone!
