Love vintage fabrics? Bay Area designer Bari J‘s handbags, makeup cases and belts come in an array of vintage-inspired prints. Picky Pollies can design their own bags by choosing shape and fabric choice. My favorite item in the online Bari J store right now has to be this quilted fabric belt. Belts come in four different color schemes and sizes. There are kiddie sizes, too. Buy online or check some of Bari J’s wares out in person at Lavish in Hayes Valley (btw, this is a great store to visit if you’ve got to find a cute baby or mommy gift).
And for you crafty, D.I.Y. types who like to part-ay, Bari will bring handbag materials and ready made samples that you can customize to house parties, showers, birthdays, etc.
