tote your stuff in style {giveaway}

1:23 AM

I always love when I can go somewhere and bring back something to give away to you!  This something is a little more special, though, than just a random souvenir.  My sister-in-law has been making these stylish bags for a while now.  As the demand and vision has expanded, she had the desire to start teaching women in the local African communities how to sew.  Gloria is her first student!  Gloria didn't know how to sew at all when Anneke started teaching her and now she can create something with her hands that she's not only proud of but that she can earn a profit from to feed her family.  My heart gets giddy to see this in action.

I bought one of these amazing bags to give away but I also brought back some to sell!  The details...

To Purchase

Match the text on the photo with the text in the Style drop down menu on the BUY NOW button.  Over the shoulder bags are $35 each and coin purses are $15 each.  Coin purses measure approximately 6.5" X 5".  Prices include shipping within the U.S.  If you are overseas and would like to purchase a bag, email me and we'll work out shipping costs.  All bags and coin purses feature an Africa applique sewn on the outside.
