Glenda Gies!

We are so excited to announce that we are getting our first shipment of Glenda Gies bags for the tea parlor. Once we receive them, we will get some photos and prices listed on here. Our online store is yet to come, but if you are interested in purchasing from us, all you have to do is send me an email and we'll get you taken care of. maryann@therubypear.com

These bags are just fantastic. Made of vintage style fabrics and high quality hardware, they are stylish, classic, European inspired and just all around adorable. We cannot wait to get them!

Glenda ....in her own words:
My inspiration began while traveling abroad. I fell in love with the sophisticated European culture and fashion of London and Paris...I was struck by the workmanship and unique design of accessories from the 1940’s and 50’s..I design my handbags, totes and accessories to be elegant and functional, yet whimsical. I want to provide women with the opportunity to have a piece of the past that blend perfectly with today’s fashions while not seeing their bag in every mall across America...It’s a physically strenuous and challenging job, but every day is a new adventure and a treasure hunt. Who could ask for more?
