So, why not make an investment in you fellow neighbor? To help you out, I have put together a list of some small businesses run by some amazing people who were kind enough to let me feature them here today.

Gilder Bags

Hello! My bags are made from the left over pieces from the stamping process involved in making couches, car interiors and, ironically enough, high end handbags. The prices by size are $10 for the snap coin purses, $17 for the small, $27 for the medium, and $37 for the large. I came to this idea because I frequently lust after handbags but cannot justify creating new demand for leather because of the cruelty involved in the industry. Each bag is truly one of a kind as I work to best utilize the leather available! To learn more about our products, you can visit our Facebook page, or you can email me at designbygilder@gmail.com.
