Handmade Holiday Giveaway Day 2 - By Your Side(Ends December 5th)



Michelle, the owner of By Your Side Original Handcrafted Accessories, is one of the sweetest and most talented people that I've met in this crazy online world.  She is always actively promoting other artisans and is truly committed to buying and selling handmade.  Portland Oregon is where she lives with her husband and her two daughters. In addition to her love of fabric and sewing, knitting is a passion of hers as well.  You can tell that she loves what she does by the quality and creativity that is apparent in her designs.

By Your Side was started four years ago when Michelle realized that she couldn't find exactly what she wanted in a purse.  As a result, she decided to make it herself and started designing and creating purses.  After being approached by numerous people, Michelle decided to sell her bags on Etsy.  She creates the most beautiful bags out of gorgeous fabric.  Original designs include; the Itty Bitty Brittney-which is the perfect travel bag, Lil Miss Handbag-a smaller yet spacious bag , Michele Handbag-perfect for everyday use, and several other really great styles.  By Your Side is always willing to do custom orders if you have a special fabric or style that you like.
