Here’s an update our female readers might appreciate. M. Avery’s relocation from the Monroe Arts Center to 266 7th Street!
Megan Avery, the artistic and talented bag designer has a new place for you to purchase and/or make your own custom hand bags!!
Her store is more than just a place to buy custom handbags. Being in business since 2001, she prides herself in not only making products that her clients will appreciate, but also sharing her knowledge and inspiration with others.
Her offerings also include Handbag Parties (where the host gets 15% of the sales!), Photo bags (your favorite picture on a bag), and workshops where you can learn, interact and enjoy the process from start to finish, and keep your work of art!
Her shop was an old pharmacy in Hoboken, and has a nice retro feel to it. Almost sweatshop as she jokingly states, but that kind of craftsmanship doesn’t exist in modern construction these days.
Since all bags are made with custom material, it’s all up to individual preference. This isn’t Vera Bradley by any means. It’s 100% what the customer wants. I saw a great super cute and practical Heather Clutch for going out. Reversible design, and quality construction. Only $32 too!
They have other designs as well, such as doggie carriers, shoe bags, ristlets, totes and laptop bags.
I plan to attend one of the workshops soon! Seating is limited, and they book fast, so I need to schedule quickly. The workshops are $50, and include all the supplies, instruction, and (get this) complimentary wine and appetizers! And at the end of the night (depending on how much you drink) you’ll be going home with a nice finished product!
Hopefully Megan isn’t too liberal with the wine, otherwise some folks I know might just sew themselves to the bag or whatever!
Check M. Avery out today! It’s a nice diversion to the typical cookie-cutter operation you see these days.
Here’s their old photo right when then took over the House Wear spot:
