A Spring Purse Anyone?

Filed under: Vintage Meanderings — sadie @ 2:54 pm

What a great time to knit a purse for the upcoming season! The snow is finally gone, and it’s time to turn to some spring and summer knitting. Small projects are always appealing, and we now have some new additions to our online store. We’ve added quite a few bag/purse handles. Although, they have been in stock for quite some time, we are just now getting them online.

The bag handles are sold in sets of two. They range in price from $7.25 to $14.75 per pair. Most handle styles come in at least two colors, giving you a choice to match your bag with the perfect bag handle. We anticipate adding more bag handles to our online store this summer. They are made from plastic or synthetic materials, and have wonderful finishes to resemble bamboo, marble, and others. Here are a few of the bag handles that we have in stock.
