Charlie’s Aunt Fall Releases

I love the vintage style of Charlie’s Aunt satchels.  They fill my need for Downton Abbey withdrawal! These 1940’s inspired designs are the perfect companions for the popular wools that are showing up everywhere.  The button embellishments could be straight out of my mother’s button box!


The Brancaster Messenger Bag features an asymmetrical flap and front pocket.  This nine by thirteen inch size would be a great diaper bag.  Or picture it in Scarlet and Grey Shannon Suede with the OSU logo appliqued in place of the buttons.  The possibilities are endless!  (And for those of you who were curious, Brancaster is a beach community on the North Norfolk Coast Line.)


The Breckland Bag also features asymmetrical flaps but looks totally different.  I love when the pockets become a fashion statement!  (And by the way, Breckland is an area of Norfolk.)

The awe factor is in the details so be sure to have coordinating buttons in stock!
