Bags! Bags! Bags!

For those of you that have been following my blog, you will notice that the blog has basically transformed from Melinda Mae Handbags information, shows, new products, etc to a music blog. There are a few reasons for that…

1) I LOVE music! And I want to share the good stuff with all of you! There are so many awesome new artists coming out and I want you to enjoy them too!

2) Melinda Mae Handbags has been on a bit of break since my move. It has not completely shutdown since I still do orders for customers that email directly at info@melinda-mae.com and I also have some bags selling at Modern Mouse in Alameda, California. I also have been doing some wedding orders for those of you looking for custom handbags for bridesmaids.

So I want all of you that Melinda Mae Handbags is still around. In fact, I am prepping a new order to go out to Modern Mouse this week, full of wristlets and clutches! Here is a preview of what will be going out so if you like, stop by Modern Mouse in Alameda! What do you think of these?

Edamame Clutch @ Modern Mouse!

Today, I took another lovely trip out to Modern Mouse in Alameda. It was such a beautiful sunny day today so I didn’t mind the drive at all. I dropped off 3 Melinda Mae Edamame clutches to be sold at Modern Mouse to add to the other wristlets and clutches currently being sold there. I love this fabric with its vibrant colors and amazing Japanese pattern. Each clutch is uniquely created because of the beautifully varied pattern of flowers and lined with rich black corduroy. Inside each clutch is a pocket specifically for your ID, chapstick, credit cards or other small items. Each clutch is secured with a magnetic snap.

If you love this clutch, stop by Modern Mouse or go to www.melinda-mae.com to purchase the Edamame clutch online now! And if you haven’t stopped by Modern Mouse yet, you’re missing out! While I was in the store, a few people came in to shop and as I walked around the shopping center, I saw that those folks left holding their Modern Mouse purchases! Every week, Eleen, owner of Modern Mouse, continues to add new and creative products from local independent designers. Want more info on Modern Mouse and to see photos of Modern Mouse?
