I purchased a handbag recently from this place, and it's an undiscovered gem of a shop. I've found it hard to find women's bags that won't either require a chiropractor because they're so large, or look like a bicyler's messenger bag, or fall into the pretty-but-useless clutch category. The leather bags here are stylish and functional, with an abundance of compartments and pockets that are cleverly placed so as not to destroy the sleek appearance. There's a good range of designs and colors, from those that are more on the casual end of things (nylon material) to more work-wear oriented leather bags. The saleswoman was very nice and very helpful, with good advice on how to care for the bag.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
