Improved website

Improved website

As you may be aware we launched our new much improved website in the latter half of 2018. It was a tough year my husband Chris really put a tremendous amount of time into the vision we had. Loading the site with as much of our stock as possible (we have a lot of bags!!!!). We had guidance and practical help from @ianjames and Matt #conspicuousmarketing in Manchester, thank you to them they held our hand and made it a much easier experience. We now have an easy to use, attractive, understandable and easy to buy from website......we hope you agree. Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we may do to improve the site for you. www.yourbagheaven.com will keep improving and thanks to you it has proved to be successful with a lot of repeat customers from all over the country and beyond.

Wow .......new seasons collections

Wow .......new seasons collections

Wow ...wow ...wow Viva España 🇬🇧🇩🇪.We have got some amazing new Spanish labels for you this season, some of which we have managed to secure exclusivity in the North West....which to be honest is a real feather in our cap. All the new collections are truly head turning styles, colour combinations and finishes. ...watch this space. We will put images on the site as soon as we are able.....think tequila sunrise, pina colada and cold Rioja. These labels are truly different which hand on heart as an independent shop gives me a real buzz and signposts Bag Heaven and www.yourbagheaven.com as stores to watch. We try our best to keep abreast of new styles/colours and finishes with the intention to offer fabulous bags at the right price. We hope you agree that Spring Summer 2019 is promising to be very exciting for us and for you.🌸🌼🌻🥀🌹🌷🌺💐

Handmade bags

Handmade bags

Great news for 2019, we have a new brand -Cecilia Plaza- which we love - it’s quirky, it’s different, it’s quality and best of all it is very affordable. Just one look at the bags and you can see it’s spanish. The bags are lovingly handmade by the artist and that personal attention to detail is immediately evident. We are super proud to have brand exclusivity and to have the opportunity to bring something different to Monton High street and www.yourbagheaven.com We have lots of new and exciting things happening for Spring and Summer 2019 so please keep watching.

Having fun

Having fun

We’ll Christmas is over and Winter draws on ( actually I’m wearing mine now - less Julia Roberts and more Judi Dench! ). Seriously can not believe how quickly the time passes, is that age related do you think ? Think it is ....I’ve just watched the weather forecast ( of course on the BBC see I said it was age related ) and heard that snow is likely on Monday or Tuesday in the north, my initial response was, note to self get the thermals out .....and then after a minute or so ...”that will be great fun for my 2 year old grandson has he got a sledge 🛷?” I think this reaction is a phenomenon....’age delay’ truly I think it is,because I know I’m good fun and would love and enjoy playing in the snow with my grandson BUT there is a part of my brain that looks at the life numbers and decides to react in a negative way ......until that is,I quickly check myself. So my New Years resolution is to keep a check on that first response and have lots of fun in 2019. Enjoy the year ahead and have fun. The photo is a 1920 chainmail bag which I have had  since I was 14 years old.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all. I hope you have a lovely happy and healthy year ahead. It seems only a moment ago when I was lumbering down the loft ladders with armfuls of Xmas decorations !! Next year they are going up on the 1st of December then at least I will feel I got the efforts worth (ps nobody looked in my pot cupboards/ under sink cupboard so why on Earth I clean them out before Xmas every year I don’t know BUT I guess it’s tradition.......passed from mother to daughter....it’s what we do before Xmas and I’ll probably do it until the day I die). I have to say I love my home on Christmas Eve, Xmas tree up,presents wrapped ,the smell of Xmas spice burning and then we light a log fire and the world feels right. It’s what we in our family call ‘Cosy Joe ‘ ( no idea why but we do ) .....So I hope you had a ‘Cosy Joe’ Xmas and  have a ‘Cosy Joe’ new year thank you for your continuing support, your custom and all the great chats we’ve had. X X

Xmas Festival of Trees (part 2)

Xmas Festival of Trees (part 2)

Just a quick update on the festival of trees at Monton Unitarian Church over the weekend. It was a great success apparently and they raised lots of much need funds for the upkeep of the Grade 2 listed church building along with a big donation for the Mustard Tree food bank. We went along yesterday morning before we opened the shop at 10am. Rev Anna had a Christmas singalong for 1/2 hour. It was great and got us right into the festive spirit.

Xmas Festival of Trees

Xmas Festival of Trees

We hope you like our handbag Christmas tree 🎄👜. (I’m a Blue Peter child of the sixties 😂). Yes it would have been much easier just to go out and buy the baubles but as this was a Monton Church event I thought it would give a personal touch to sit and cut out over 40 handbag and 10 bauble shapes from glitter card (yes the glitter gets everywhere!!!!) AND then write a different sentiment or Xmas related word on the back of each one in coordinating felt tip pen .........(no I’m not a control freak 😂) We put the tree up in the Monton Unitarian Church last night after work at 7.30 when hand on heart I would have preferred to be at home watching the tv or in the bath......BUT here’s the thing it made us feel good, in fact it made us feel great. It really did .....and isn’t that really the spirit of Christmas? We hope you have a lovely weekend.🎄
