This year I’m going to try to put more of an effort to support small business for my holiday shopping. One of the main reasons we made a Holiday Gift Guide was to highlight Etsy stores that have truly inspired us with their craftsmanship and creativity over the past year! I’ve been taking this bag with me everywhere since I bought it and thought sharing it with you would be a perfect way to celebrate Shop Small Saturday. It’s from an Etsy shop I found recently called Joy and Anchor Company that I absolutely love!
This bag jumped out at me immediately when I saw it because it has so many features that I love: It’s a crossbody bag, has a removable leather strap, and can also be used as a foldover clutch if I want to dress it up a little. Plus it’s covered in denim and daisies which totally speaks to my southern heart!
I was really pleased to see that this bag came with several options to personalize it! I chose caramel leather with a white zipper finish to go with the brass finishes on the zipper and strap. I love that the inside is just as pretty as the outside with the surprise white and black stripe lining!
It’s a perfect size because it has plenty of room to fit all of my must have items that I like to carry with me! I’m easily able to fit a lip balm, compact, perfume spray, sunglasses, and a few oily essentials with no problem. I really like that I’m still am able to fold it over and use it as a clutch without it feeling bulky!
I’m so excited that I was able to find a quality handmade bag that is as stylish and versatile as this one! It’s made with 100% Top Grain caramel leather which comes in a black option as well. It also is made with a very soft but sturdy denim fabric and the black and white lining is made with 100% cotton. It has been going with me everywhere recently and it is definitely my new favorite bag for going out and about!
