Hi Brenda,

We just put the passport purses on the floor for sale this past weekend and sold two immediately! I was hoping that we could place a reorder with you guys. How many do you have available and how quickly could you ship to us? Also, we talked a little bit about the buffalo nickel key chains. Do you have anymore information on those? I hope all is well and I look forward to hearing from you.

Greetings Brenda,

It was so nice to meet you last year at the Heard Museum’s Indian Festival. As you know, I am quite enchanted with your work. The beautiful bag we purchased from you is being well cared for in the University of San Diego’s Anthropology Museum. I’m delighted to learn that you are applying for an “Artist in Residence” position with the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, IN to demonstrate and teach how your bags are made. I’m certain that it would be a wonderful experience for everyone involved and a perfect pairing of your fine craft with an excellent venue.

Best wishes,

Howdy! I am your number one fan. I have been carrying your large black “Scout” bag for about seven years now and it is still as gorgeous as the day I bought it. You sent me some business cards last year and I have been handing them out to people who compliment on my bag when I am out and about. I have a gallery now in Santa Fe called “The Santa Fe Pony Express” and I would love to sell your bags in our gallery and through our online store. I know you have many high end galleries clamoring for your bags but I don’t know if anyone can promote them as passionately as I will, because my bag is my everyday work of art companion and has been for many years. Our gallery website is santafeponyexpress.com. I paint all the horses. The originals range from $1,000 up to $12,000 so although we have all kinds of Southwest stuff in a variety of prices, we do have very high end stuff. It would be an honor to represent your handbags because they are true works of art. Please let me know if you would consider allowing us to promote and sell your magnificent bags. 

Thanks so much!

Hi Steve & Brenda – I love my bag you folks made for me about 2 years back and get lots of compliments. I would love to get another one. Can you tell me the price for the Hopi–in black with black trim? Not sure exactly how I would like the flap, but the old coins sound cool. Let me know.

I really like the Crow Bag that you have pictured...with the lighter tobacco color and the contrasting saddle trim...Beautiful!

I have a Pequot Bag in saddle color with chocolate trim...with a Thunderbird silver concho. I purchased the bag from you many years ago at the Rankokus Pow Wow in New Jersey. I really love this bag!

My bag as held up well over the years. It is big enough to hold everything that I carry, and it hardly shows any wear or tear after 6 years of owning it. The two large pockets are great for my checkbook and for personal items, and the two smaller pockets are perfectly sized for my keys and phone. I’m really happy with my bag, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
