Grandpa's Got a Brand New Bag {GIVEAWAY}

You've seen me profess my love for handbags on this blog many many many times but the bags I'm featuring today are different from any I've ever seen before.  Why?  Because they're made by a GRANDPA!  You read that right - a grandpa.  But there's nothing fuddy duddy about Grandpa's Rags and Bags


See what I mean?  And the inside is just as sassy as the outside.


I love this purple floral clutch.


And the dogwood fabric is just stunning.


The framed clutches aren't the only great bags Grandpa's making from his rags.  Check out the adorable pleated wristlet.


Wristlets are so great for busy moms - I put my license, keys, credit cards, lip gloss and other must haves in one and just move it from my pocketbook to my diaper bag so I never forget anything.  And Grandpa put some handy pockets in his version which makes it so easy to stay organized.


Plus the strap comes off so you can carry it as a clutch too.


Small bags not your thing?  Then check out the Ashton Tote.


It has an adjustable strap so it can be worn on your shoulder or cross body.


And look at all the storage space!


And The Sac shoulder bag is perfect for everyday or big enough to use as a diaper or camera bag.


How cute is the contrasting lining?


Can you believe that all of Grandpa's Rags and Bags are all handmade by Grandpa Terry?  If only all of the men in our lives had such great taste in handbags....
Want one of Grandpa's originals for your own?  He has graciously offered to give one lucky AFOMFT a $20 credit to his store!
