A new batch of Downtown Bags are being created and should be available in my shop next week or sooner. Posted above was the last one in my shop that sold last week. The Downtown Bag is the perfect size for everyday use. It's design is modern with a hint of vintage. Two exterior pockets and two interior pockets keep things organized. A magnetic snap on the flap keeps the bag closed. I like to finish them off with vintage buttons from my stash for a unique one-of-a-kind look. It also gives the bag a more vintage feel which I love. They will be available in 100% linen and linen/cotton blend fabric. I also plan to introduce two other designs over the next few weeks, a pleated messenger and a larger pleated shoulder bag. I add new items to my shop regularly so check back often!

I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava
