European Treasures

While in Europe last month, Debbie did a little shopping for Laura Bee Designs. These pretty bags contain ribbon purchased with Euros.
Silver and black jacquard from Italy.
Customers have brought us ribbon and fabric from their travel adventures, and commissioned custom bags using the souvenirs.
Rich floral cotton jacquard from Spain.
 I think it's fun to have something specific to hunt for when traveling. The experience creates its own kind of adventure.
French velvet ribbon in sophisticated colors.
Debbie reported that the Parisian stores seemed to be absent any sort of line or queue, resulting a in a bit of mayhem. She found the Spanish stores to be a bit more relaxed.

Cheerful floral jacquard from Spain.
We invite you to pick up a yard of ribbon or a little bit of fabric on your summer vacation. Bring it to us and we'll craft something special for you to carry with you to commemorate your trip.

As for these ribbons (and the rest of the stash), I'll be making one-of-a-kind bags for our Glam For Good collection at our 8 Year Anniversary party in November.
