More Map Wallets

Our stockist in Spokane recently ordered some custom map mini wallets. Ferrante's is an Italian cafe and boutique so they wanted some Italy wallets.

Of course they had us make some Spokane wallets to showcase their town. If you are in Eastern Washington, swing by Ferrante's, have a gelato, and say hello from Laura Bee.
Luxe in Eugene, Oregon commissioned wallets and coin purses for their gift shop. I love the colors on this vintage map. It nicely complements the Oregon Ducks green.
