Yikes. We’ve let a lot of time lapse since our last update, but we have good reason. We’ve been busy worker bees making bags for ooma. What do we like best about this place? It’s friendly and welcoming store owner. Why should you shop there? Because they carry local labels and a unique assortment of goodies to get you dressed from head to toe. And because it’s located in North Beach where you can get yummy Italian pastries on every corner. Some things you’ll find on the shelves of ooma…

CHET is new! Simple clutch with leather detail and rivets. We’re really into rivets. Use this for cosmetics, too.

MILES is new! Wear this three ways: tote, crossbody, backpack!! That’s the best part. We made this because of the recent revival of the backpack. And because we wanted one for ourselves. Thanks to Bonnie for being our model =)

LOUIS is new! This bag is huge. Summer will be here soon enough and everyone needs a something to carry their beach towel and flip-flops. Use it for overnighters and weekend trips. Note the nifty leather closure and coconut buckle.

WYNTON in mix of prints. That zebra and aubergine stripe both have lining that’s been hand printed in Thailand, compliments of Roberta.

The three R’s.

We are big supporters of reusing, recycling, repurposing, but we’re not sure how we feel about bottle tops and soda can rings turned handbags.  Last night we actually saw a gal with a wristlet in the same vein.  It looked just as weird in person. Seems uncomfortable. Maybe dangerous (ouch). Denae, start saving all the tops and rings from your Diet Coke.

free event @ LOFT 1513

Got an email from LOFT 1513 promoting their free event on April 7th. Clicked on this link and the photo below popped up. Those bags look really familiar… oh! Those are ours! If you’re cruising the neighborhood that day, go and check it out. They’ll be serving champagne at 7pm.
