One of the advantages to having a blog for me has been all the amazing and creative people I have had the opportunity to meet and work with along the way. I am also a huge proponent for the American made item that’s durable, functional, and looks great. This is where Burgundy Circus Hardgoods comes in and takes over. The owner, Mike Payne, specializes in making by hand leather and canvas totes, utility bags, wallets, and key FOBs. Mike makes everything out of his studio here in Kansas City. I immediately fell in love with the Stable Tote, which has a Houndstooth leather lining, leather shoulder straps, and a gorgeous red exterior. As a mom, I am always carrying around things for London in my bag along with my other daily necessities, wallet, ipad, business card holder, makeup bag, and other miscellaneous items. This bag comfortably handles all my items and more. Go check out his website and then go buy one of his bags because you will be so happy you did.
