              I was searching for an appropriate gift for the 80th birthday of a girlfriend and came across your website and this bag. I thought it was beautiful and since my friend is very artistic thought she would love it. Since I have not actually seen the bag but had it sent directly to my friend, I went by the very good reviews. My friend was happy.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Fern Frond Hand Embroidered Shoulder Bag:

                Very nice, although maybe too nice for something that should be practical. The inner lining is a bit loose and light (like silk). These are the only negatives however.
                Very nice colorful embroidery!
                And she loved it, and will use it -that's what matters most to me.

                  This bag is very pretty in person and is made well. I was a little surprised at how lightweight it is, but that's a good thing. I think I will be able to used it all year.
