Leather handbags, affordably

Italian leather handbags come in glorious, bright colors!  Each is handmade, dyed and embossed leather with brass fittings.   Embossing is painstakingly accurate to the natural leather patterns of animal skins such as ostrich and crocodile.  Classic shapes make these bags a timeless purchase; bright colors add a pop to your wardrobe!   Each comes with its own dustbag and the insides are as beautifully finished as the exteriors.

Aurora Glass Jewelry

Artist Patti Quinn’s Aurora Fused Glass designs are original and hand-made.  She combines a variety of glass elements to create art-quality pendants by fusing them and firing at high temperatures before hand setting them in sterling silver bezels.  “Aurora” refers to the spectacular Northern Lights, a natural display of breathtaking and ever changing colors.  In Roman mythology, the goddess Aurora heralds the dawn, flying across the sky in anticipation of the sun, filling the heavens with color.   Aurora Glass Jewelry is truly inspirational:

So after you get the kids back to school, why not drop by Ann’s for a leisurely browse?  Have a look at all the things you wanted BEFORE Christmas but didn’t get.  Someone you know has a birthday this month, or maybe you have an anniversary to celebrate.   We’re stocked with lots of thoughtful gifts.

Buy yourself something

When you spend a season shopping for gifts for other people, isn’t that the time you see wonderful things you would like?   If you’ve put off making personal purchases, now is the time to treat yourself.   These jewelry pieces are the type of things not easily given as gifts, so if you like them, why not buy one for yourself?
