We'd like to introduce another fabulous guest poster, Bonnie of Going Home To Roost. She loves all things homemade and handcrafted, and her blog and Etsy shoppe are chock full of darling creations. Read on for a review of one of her favorite craftresses!
Evon Cassier is the oh. so. clever. mind behind Cleverscene. Her bags ($40-225) are all made out of upcycled thrift store suits, and perfectly fit her motto- "clever, stylish, functional." She believes that "You've got to give a little to take a little," and so shops at non-profit thrift stores as a way of donating to charity as she does business.
I love that she takes otherwise unlucky suits, gives them a little tlc and turns them into amazing handbags that leave nothing to be desired. You can also read more about her inspiring process :: reuse, imagine, liberate, create!
