Sally Bags Encourages Women to Stand Out with Their Purse Out

By Elisha Neubauer

In a world of mass production, where everything seems to be the same straight off the manufacture line, every woman seeks a little individuality. Janet Durkee, Founder of Sally Bags, seeks to bring a little creativity and distinctive style to the shoulders of women in the New England area.

"I like to think my personality is infused in each bag," Durkee states. "I love to combine texture, patterns, and colors in pleasing ways to create fun and functional items. In a world of mass production and imports, my line appeals to the 'keeping it local' crowd without the hefty artisan price tags."

The New England based company is an official member of NH Made, the League of NH Craftsmen, Designing Women, and the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce, so you know you're getting a quality product from a quality business. Each and every bag is hand crafted from start to finish -- and individually designed by Durkee herself.

The current Sally Bags lineup includes seven styles, which as Durkee describes range "From the very roomy and functional weekender to the everyday clutch/wallet." Also available are the traditional tote, a larger version of the tote, two sizes of cross body styles, a diaper bag, and a two-piece cosmetic bag set.

"All have loads of pockets inside, both zipped and open and are made for stylish functionality," she states. "All my designs started from what I wanted and needed in a bag and have evolved and grown from that with customer suggestions always being a big part."

Today, the bags are available in over 30 shops across New England.

"I've always thought of myself as a great combination of Yankee ingenuity and artist," Durkee announces. "The bags allow both the logical, problem solving, mathematician side and free spirit, colorful, artist side of my brain to function equally."

When it comes to caring for the Sally Bags, well, that's another perk to the small artisan collection. Using a mixture of warm water and facial cleaner, the bags can be spot washed; however, they are also machine washable, adding functionality and length to their lives. For bags that seem a little crumpled or downtrodden, a quick ironing job should do the trick to revitalize and reenergize. Gift certificates can be purchased through the website, for those looking to share the Sally Bags love.

A full list of shops carrying the Sally Bags line is available on the website, as well, for those who are looking to see the bags up close and personal.
