Handmade Handbag Love

bagbr.jpg

Lugging a heavy and unattractive camera bag around art shows makes me pine for pretty purses, like those designed and sewn by Brandi Bautel in booth 5 at the Fallasburg Fall Festival, the festival I’ve been raving about that runs through 5 p.m. today.

Brandi’s designer, Maris Rae, bags are named after her mom. I’m digging these little bags, too.

Brandi~ Your bags are beautiful. I found them by accident, I was googling my daughter’s name Maris Rae and up popped these beautiful bags. I wish you the best of luck.
