Tarabu - Bags, Blankets and more! (and a Giveaway!)

Tara, at Tarabu has some real talent. This shop is a must see!

I was lucky enough to be the recipient of this bag, for a review:


Let me tell you that the picture does not do it justice! It's gorgeous, but so much more when you get your hands on it! She wraps it up so pretty, in tissue paper, with her cute sticker to seal it up. The quality is outstanding! You can tell she really puts her heart into her work. This is a great get-up-and-go bag. It's stylish and actually USEFUL! I got tons of compliments on it. I just wish she had sent a few more business cards, so I could have passed them out!

She's not limited to bags though. Oh no, this very talented woman has a vast selection of things, from blankies (here's my fav, so chic, right?!)


Too cute hand made stuffed animals (no lead paint here!).

You must check out her shop. Her prices are super low, especially for the quality and customer service she provides.

As kind as she is, Tara has also offered a Giveaway to our readers!

That's right people, head on over to Tarabu, check her out. Then come back here and tell us your favorite item. You can enter again by subscribing to our feed (please post separate comments for each entry) . We'll randomly pick a winner, and she'll send you your pick! Doesn't get much better than that! This giveaway will end at 6 pm, CST on Tuesday, September 9.

Christina - xristya@rock.com - I love the Betty Bag - Hibiscus Print - Courier Style, which is certainly a messenger of fields of flowers ready to be picked and gathered into bouquets for loved ones, and long days spent in wooded glens! It's practical, very eye-catching, stylish and feminine, all one could hope for in a purse or bag!
