I love these handbags from Boston based Frock. Made from repurposed vintage fabrics and brooches from the 1940’s through the 1960’s. My favorite is the “Emily” handbag {above, left…with the brown tweed and pink trim}. The sprout bags are great too. Love the repurposed belts as shoulder straps. What a find! Isn’t it time you bought a little somethin’ for yourself?!

I love the cuteness that is Queen Bee Creations. Portland, Oregon based Queen Bee {and Chickpea Baby} uses recycled wool and reclaimed banners for many of their bags and wallets….so great! They offer pillows and aprons as well as cute tees for the wee ones. I’m also inspired by the owner, Rebecca Pearcy’s, story about how her business evolved {see her video here}. Thank you to Modish for finding this.
