Sponsor Spotlight : Opelle Creative


I can't believe Amy Malcolm actually makes these super gorgeous bags from her home studio… WOW… I am soo impressed. This is absolute craftmanship. Coming from a father who knows a thing or two about leather I can only be utterly impressed! Amy is the founder and only staffmember of Opelle Creative.


Not only do these leather handbags look stylish and very modern they also look very beautifully made and if you are the kind of person who just like me prefers handmade above the retail labels then this is the bag for you.                                                                                                       Read and See More >>>


Here a nice interview with Amy on the Etsy blog to read a bit more about her and how Amy enjoys living in Toronto.
