If you are looking for BAGOLITAS (those spunky fabric handbags with fringe), you are just one more click away – head on over to my ETSY store, called Janice Baldes Studio.

If you have never heard of a BAGOLITA, let me catch you up to speed. In 2005 I founded a handbag company when a home project went awry and I took some left over fabric, added some fringe and called it a BAGOLITA. Who knew they would be such a hit? After selling over 100,000 handbags (with the help of many!) and having the bottom fall out of the business during The Great Recession, God started weaving a new story into my life and it was time to set the fabric and fringe aside (for awhile). After some serious grieving of the company and people I loved spending my days with, I started to dust myself off and redefine myself outside of being “the bag lady.”

Today, in the nooks and crannies of life, I create handbags, gifts and tools for the journey. Below are some favorites of mine that have hit the shop.

    Hello Janice! I work with Dr. Heather Rocheford with Rocheford Plastic Surgery, and I know she recently received a more ‘up-to-date’ bag from the one she used to carry! I was wondering if I could possibly get a bag like this is style, but of course with the material of my choice! If you don’t mind, please email me and let me know what I need to so to make this happen and how much it will cost. Thank you so much!
