Brenda the Bag Lady

Quality handmade purses, wristlets, wallets and more.

I have taken my love of purses and combined that with my desire to be creative. Add in the beauty and sustainability of cork and this is a winning combination that makes my work feel more like play.

Yes, that is real cork! It’s soft, lightweight and feels reminiscent of leather. Cork is often thought of as the vegan leather alternative. Its sustainable (harvested from the outer layers of bark without harming the tree), produced without using harmful chemicals, it’s water resistant, scratch resistant, lightweight and its beautiful!

I make these beautiful bags out of my home in South St. Petersburg. If you would like to arrange a mutually agreed upon, public place to pick up an order, I am happy to work something out with you.

First time experience at LocalShops1 and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. I ordered a beautiful wristlet from Brenda the Bag Lady and both the quality and craftsmanship is superior. I will be doing a lot of my holiday shopping on this site!

Everything went smoothly. Thank you for your repeat order!
