Pop-Up Shop: The Mara Bag


Today I have for sale one of my favorite items I've ever owned.  :) 

You could say I'm very excited to post this. 










The Mara Bag - (3) Available

Price: $150

We had this bag made by a local leather craftsman here in Cuenca, who makes everything by hand in his workshop. We were very pleased with his work! The leather is thick and really, this bag should last for years and years, if not a lifetime. The bag can actually hold a lot! I am always shocked at how much I can fit in there comfortably. Also, the leather is natural and will likely darken and age over time. This is an incomparable, timeless statement piece.

Shipping: $15. Delivery should be approximately within 2-4 weeks. (Earlier orders will ship sooner. Also, the 2-4 weeks is an estimate. Due to the international shipping, I won't be able to guarantee the time of arrival unless you wanted to pay for expedited shipping, though the cost would be very high.)

To Claim It: Write SOLD in the comments. Send payment immediately to mara@ablogaboutlove (dot) com via Paypal. Please include your shipping address in the Paypal notes. Thank you!!

***This sale is part of our #HolidayServiceProject. By purchasing, you 
allow 100% of the profit to be given to Lifting Hands International 
on behalf of the Serres Refugee Camp in northern Greece. Stay tuned for 
future Pop-Up Shops in the coming days and weeks before Christmas.***

  6. What a lovely bag! Here's hoping that when you bought the bag in '04 or '05, you had it custom designed/made simply for you. Otherwise, by asking a craftsman to recreate it, are you not ripping off the original designer? This isn't meant to be a rude comment, I'm just genuinely curious!

  8. Hi Mara! I'm wondering if we can get a waiting list going on for some of the items that are benefiting Lifting Hands International?? lol I'm serious! This bag looks gorgeous and I obviously missed out on this item as well as the wool chunky sweater. I bet others might be interested in this and I'm willing to pay upfront for the items as long as you can guarantee that I will be able to get the products :)

    2. Hi ladies - - - soooo happy you like the stuff!! :) And thanks for these notes. We are tinkering with the idea of trying to get more of these goods - and opening up a small shop to keep this going. It's very, very tricky to get things sourced here (reliably) - but doing this fundraiser has helped us to narrow in on some more reliable vendors. I've been grateful for the push. So yes, we're going to see if we can get more wool sweaters, more leather goods, and more baskets. We also have at least one more surprise pop-up coming very soon (another bag!)
