We are pleased to welcome a new artist to MaJe Gallery – Lorraine Velona of Cambria Court Designs.  Her meticulously crafted handbags are designed by a woman for women. Zippers, pockets, long straps you can adjust to your favorite length – all these things are incorporated into her designs.

Lorraine’s bags are one-of-a-kind, so you must buy it when you see the one you like.  Here’s your chance!

This is the first in Lorraine’s “Around Town” series. We have four purses in this style, that you’ll be able to purchase right here.  Each is 9 1/2″ tall x 8″ wide. This handy simple bag holds all your essential items without added bulk. The long handle (approximately 22″) makes it easy to wear as a cross-body, or knot it higher to wear over the shoulder. The best part? This style is just $48.

The zipper keeps everything inside safe and secure. An open outside pocket is on the reverse side – perfect for easy access to your phone.

This purse is made of denim and a heavy cotton. Perfect to wear with jeans or other soft summer colors.

Here’s another $48 “Around Town” handbag in linen and ivory. It has the same measurements and features as all the “Around Town” bags including a secure zipper to the main body of the bag. The wide pocket on the back is as wide as the body of the purse.

This “Around Town” handbag is also 9 1/2″ tall x 8″ wide, and includes the same features as the others. The long strap (approximately 22″) makes it possible to wear any way you want. The elegant black linen fabric with heavy cotton accent fabric means you can also use this for special events when all you need is lipstick, a key, and license and a credit card, and maybe your phone. Just $48.
