RECLAIMING AMY Handbag Review and Giveaway

**This giveaway is closed. Thank you for entering.**

I absolutely love handbags! Seriously. Some women buy shoes- so many pairs that they probably don’t even have room in the closet for them! (You know who you are! *wink*) Others buy clothes, and I’ll bet there are many items in their closets that are still sporting the department store or boutique tags! I buy handbags. Oh my, I don’t even know how many I own, but I can tell you this- I am a handbag-a-holic! I can’t resist buying them. Lately, I love the handmade bags found on Etsy. One of my new favorite stores right now is RECLAIMING AMY.



RECLAIMING AMY is one of the newer Etsy shops, but don’t let that stop you from buying from Amy! Her handbags are beautiful and made of fabrics that have been recycled to live a new life in a stylish, well-constructed handbag. Therefore, no two bags are alike. The purse I have from RECLAIMING AMY is made from a reclaimed skirt and recycled purse straps/hardware. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it, and let me tell you, it is even more gorgeous in person! The exterior fabric is strong, yet soft. The interior is fully lined with a coordinating fabric, and there is a cell phone pocket and a zippered pocket inside as well- great features for someone like me who NEEDS organization!

Bottom Line:
RECLAIMING AMY makes quality handbags.
RECLAIMING AMY handbags are ECO-FRIENDLY, made from recycled materials.
• I recommend you checking out her shop and seeing if there’s something there to suit your style, or for someone on your gift list.

BUY IT:
RECLAIMING AMY has some beautiful handbags available for purchase in her shop . Take a look.



WIN IT:
Amy has generously offered one living life one day at a time reader a chance to win a beautiful handbag. Thanks Amy!

I like the Autumn Colors Big Bag, I still have a need for a diaper bag, but sometimes wish I could carry a purse. This looks big enough to satisfy both.
