Don't you love it when you meet someone new and just talk to them for hours and not even realize how long you've been talking? That's what happened with me when I met Daina the owner of Jenna Claire Handbag Studio. We had a great time talking about all the fun things that they have in their store, and honestly about 100 other things too. There are so many things at Jenna Claire that I didn't even know that they sold! Besides their main feature of Design Your Own handbags and accessories they also carry Baule Lulu beads, S.T.A.M.P.S. watches, FUMI purse hangers and more.
I was so excited when I got to "test drive" a FUMI Bracelet PurseHook. I've had a purse hanger before, but nothing like this one! It is actually a bangle bracelet and purse hook fused into one fun design. It can hold up to 25 lbs so it can hook more than one purse at a time easily. I wore mine for a few days as a bangle and it was a little clunky, but I do have little wrists and I don't typically wear big jewelry either. You can use the Bracelet PurseHook where ever and when ever you want to set your purse down. You can use it on a restaurant table, restroom stall door, school desk and then when you pull your bag away the hook nicely pulls off and closes around your straps so that you don't have to worry about taking it off and putting it back in your purse then not being able to find it next time you need it. Because really do I need ONE more thing to keep track of?!
Now I'm pretty purse loyal I have my Coach handbag and that's is really all that I use. So you might be thinking what am I doing writing about a place that makes custom designed purse if I use only one brand of purses. Well, Jenna Claire has so much more there than just handbags. Besides their top sellers like the It's a Cinch, Brooklyn handbags and diaper totes they also have lunchbags, camera bags, camera straps and my current favorite- purse organizers.
I always have at toys, snacks, tissues and all those mommy things in my purse and it takes me WAY to long to find just about anything in it so, they suggested that their purse organizer would be perfect for my needs. It is the ideal solution for my messy purse but I can easily use it with any purse. When I need to switch bags all I need to do it pull my organizer out and place it in my new purse, diaper bag or gym bag. The organizer makes purse and bag changes quick and simple. It has just enough pockets for all the little things I need, a Velcro pocket and key clip. The purse organizer is sold in 3 different sizes and can be custom made with any in-store material or you can choose from their pre-made organizers. I personally picked a fun purple fabric and am very happy about how cute it turned out. It's made with stiff material so that it helps keep the shape of your purse and works like a "bra" for your bag. What I'm excited about besides helping my purse stay organized and making it easier to find things it will help keep my purse fabric stay cleaner too.
Here is what I think us awesome about Jenna Claire, it is a locally owned and operated store. Every item in store is cut and created by local seamstresses. To me that alone is a GREAT reason to support Jenna Claire. So next time you are at The Greene be sure to check out Jenna Claire! Want to see more pics of their custom products?
