New Slouch Style Handbag

As many of you know - I make unique and one-of-a-kind handbags. It's so fun and very rewarding to make something that not everyone else will have. I just finished the new slouch style bag I have been working on for a while. I LOVE how it turned out. This style of handbag is so easy to carry and is cute at the same time. It is made out of a medium brown soft leather with black patent crocodile accents, and the double sided bow is the icing on the cake. I will also have separate "bow packs" for sale so you can change the bow to match your outfits. It has a full lining with pockets for cell phones and a magnetic closure to keep things secure.
You can also custom order any of my handbags in an array of leathers & linings to suit your taste. This style sells for $225.

Stop by and check out my handbags at catfish & tater boutique located at:
12 N. Main (inside Sole Salon)
Liberty, MO.

It's been a while since I posted to my blog, but I've been really busy lately working on new items for the shop: from Tees to Scarves, Handbags to Headbands. Pictured (to the left) are a few of my fun new headbands I just made. Each one contains new and vintage pieces to make it something very unique. They are so great to add a POP of color to your outfit or just spice up your hair-do. There are others in the shop that are cute as can be - so be sure to stop by soon and check them out!

These are also great as gifts - and Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

See you soon!

The weather outside is frightful....

It's been a while since I last posted on my blog. I know I need to keep up with this more, and I always have good intentions, but it always falls to the side in my shuffle of things to get done each day. So, since it's a nasty day outside and I've been working on the computer today, I thought I should post something new.

I had a great Holiday Season at the shop and appreciate all the people who support me. It's great to know that there are people who like what you do. It's what keeps me going!

There's been a lot of clothing come and go at the shop this season. I have some coats and WINTER items left to help keep you warm and toasty. And as always - more on the way. It's hard to believe that some shops already have SPRING items out - especially when the windchill is -25 and snow is everywhere. It's just the way the industry goes though. So - to help brighten up your days, I have some more "Spring Inspired" styles coming in as well as more "Winter" styles that will keep you looking cute & warm at the same time.

One of the cute new "Winter" items I've made are the applique stocking caps. I have a few of these left & they are going fast. Something cute to help keep your head and ears warm. They start at $24 and go up to $30 w/vintage brooches attached. (see picture above)

I hope to see you all in the shop soon. There are ALWAYS specials & sales going on, so don't hesitate to stop by so you don't miss out on a good deal.

OH - be sure to check out "catfish & tater" on Facebook and add yourself as a fan. You will get special updates & deals for the shop.

Keep Warm!

A lot going on these days....

As many of you know, I opened a new "catfish & tater" location in Liberty, MO this May and then merged my Lee's Summit store with the new location mid-June.  It was sad to leave Lee's Summit and I know there are customers that are sad too, but I am only a short drive away.  Still here - just in Liberty.  I have already seen some of my regular LS customers in Liberty, so that is a good thing.  
My new location is also shared with another business, Sole Salon.  It is located on the main level and I occupy the loft area inside the salon.  We just had our "Grand Opening Party" which was a huge success.  We had a DJ, food, prize give-aways and so much more.   Hope you were there to help us celebrate!
Here are some pics of my new space in Liberty.  Hope you can stop by soon - new styles are arriving weekly from NY & LA.  And.... I also have my website up and running, so you will have to check that out as well.

See you soon.
