For those that are near Raleigh, NC...have you ever been downtown to the purse shop Stitch? If you haven't been and you are a lover of bags...make a trip. My friend, Elizabeth, and I saw the space 3 years ago when we worked downtown together (possibly closer to 4 years). The shop was empty then and Elizabeth commented that I should open up a bakery there - which would be a great space for that as well, just not for me. And one day on one of our lunch outtings (Hey Elizabeth, I miss those by the way!) we saw what went into the space. And since that day I have been lusting after a Holly Aiken bag. And now, ladies and germs, guess what? I have one :)

P.S. My very understandng Hubby didn't give me one ounce of grief over my indulgence. He can be pretty awesome that way.
(Even if you're not near the Raleigh, NC area you can still check out the Stitch/Holly Aiken website. Most of her stuff is available on her site. I love that she went to school here, set up shop here, and that all her bags are made here. She has some really great stuff and it's so unique. It's a great splurge on a local product if you feel the need to spoil someone or yourself - like I did.)
