grichels 010 crop

I first learned about Grichels from my friend Lynda.  We went out to dinner one evening and she had the most amazing purse.  I was mesmerized, spellbound, and knew I totally needed to have one for my own.  The artists for Grichels create the most remarkable goods in leather – bags, purses, books, pillows – the list goes on and on.  They have a booth at the Maryland Renaissance Festival every year.  Last year I bought myself this wonderful little ID card holder, grichels 005 crop

but knew, in my heart that I needed something more.  And so, last weekend at the Ren Fest, after rousing shows by Pyrates Royale and the fabulously talented Celtic rock band the Rogues, I marched over to Grichels and purchased this blue beauty!!!!grichels 008 crop

What can I say, I am totally in love, and can’t wait to introduce him (?) to all my friends.  I have a feeling this little bag (which can also be worn as a belt pouch) and I are going to be spending lots of time together.  The quality of craftsmanship is truly amazing.  Each creation has it’s own distinct personality.

And guess what – they now have a shop on Etsy, so if you don’t have a chance to get to one of the  Ren Fests where they set up, you can still get an original Grichels for your very own!

  • Hi Sue,
    Greetings from Croatia! We are having a wonderful time. Prague was incredibly beautiful and we are playing her in Rijeka until Petar’s wedding.on Saturday.

    This is indeed a wonderful purse. I can see the personality right through your picture!

    It won’t be long now until we are at Silver Bella. I have done most of the work on my sachets here and have the necklace to finish when I get home. I took a soldering class but would like to take one more before then. I am improving but not GREAT!

    See you soon!
