I’ve finally finished building the web pages for my biggest Handbag SALE ever
and am right on schedule for holiday gift giving and receiving!
I’m so happy and appreciative to be in the handbag business after the past few, shall I say ‘challenging’ years that I wanted to share my top five, best-selling Nature’s Energy designs on your choice of five different styles: the Classic Tote Bags, Petite Totes (that transition easily into an evening bag), Casual Totes (light and roomy bags that are great for the beach or everyday use), Laptop Bags (carry your business, school and personal gear along with your computer), and I’m even including the newest style, which I now carry as my everyday business bag, the Deluxe, Leather Trimmed Travel Tote. This bag truly holds everything, including an extra pair of comfort shoes for those days when I just cannot walk another step in my fashionable heels 😉
AND, THERE’S MORE…
To make this an even sweeter deal, and to truly express my appreciation for everyone who enjoys my designs, I’m including a FREE matching Clutch with every ‘Holiday Special’ bag that is ordered before December 3rd (so there will be plenty of time for your bags to arrive before December 24th).
I’m including FREE ground shipping to destinations within the continental USA.
So click to the main Holiday Sale page now, choose your favorite Nature’s Energy Cortese Design Bag from the 5 top-selling designs of 2010, and place your order today!
Today I’m confirming the artists (names and images further down in this post) who will be part of our Holiday ‘Art’ Bazaar at The Mutiny Hotel on December 5th in Coconut Grove, Florida.
For one-night-only, you can shop, enjoy complimentary champagne and chocolates, listen to live jazz by Leo Casino, and purchase unique, original art, jewelry, sculpture, fine art prints, cards, handbags, and more ‘art’ gifts created by professional artists, designers, and craftspeople of South Florida, Latin America, and the Netherlands – all in one place!
A LITTLE BACKGROUND ART INFO:
On the first Saturday of every month, Coconut Grove hosts an ever-changing, stimulating, and more often than not, surprising (I always love when the people of Hare Krishna parade through the galleries and share their joyful music and energy!) Art Stroll.
December promises to be one of the best ever because, after all, Art Basel Miami is in town and… ART IS EVERYWHERE!!! So much that it’s almost a bit overwhelming, especially if you try to see it all and attend every event.
This year, you’ll have the option of taking a leisurely Art Break. Join us at the Holiday Art Bazaar, sip complimentary champagne, enjoy luscious chocolates and get some (or all) of your holiday shopping done at the same time, in the same place!
THE MUTINY HOTEL PRESENTS – PURE IMAGINATION – HOLIDAY ART BAZAAR
The Arts continue to thrive in historic Coconut Grove, and the once-infamous (I’ve heard many eyebrow-raising stories!) Mutiny Hotel now draws a new kind of attention to itself, every first Saturday from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The bright swatch of coral that is The Mutiny Hotel and the intensely blue South Florida sky offer the perfect backdrop for the colorful and thought-provoking works of South Florida’s artists.
Join us on Dec. 5th, 2009 for an exclusive,
ONE-NIGHT-ONLY, Holiday Art Bazaar!
This is your chance to see some of the most creative works of this select group of artists in a casual setting, with complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine pours, champagne and chocolates. Jazz musician, Leo Casino will be entertaining us in his impressive and incomparable style.
Enjoy Poolside Cocktails and Dinner… before or after Art!
Atchana’s East/West Kitchen is a sophisticated hideaway located on the ground level of The Mutiny Hotel. Open to the public and hotel guests, this unique dining establishment serves a sumptuous array of fresh, authentic Asian dishes, along with American Classics such as New York Strip Steak and Snapper Filets.
Enjoy dinner and/or cocktails in the intimate wood-paneled 45-seat indoor dining room, or outdoors, next to the poolside waterfall.
