House of Bags

They call themselves House of Bags, but at first glance one might think it's the alley of bags. It literally looks like it could be an alley within the alley, but this little nook inside Santee has one of the best handbag selections we've seen lately. Classic, trendy, studded, fringe, you name it, House of bags has it. We were especially impressed by the faux leather bags, which seemed sturdy, well made and within the competitive Santee Alley prices. House of Bags also carries a small selection of backpacks, luggage, and evening bags.

Visit them at 1125-8 Maple Ave. inside the Santee Alley. The offer wholesale and retail. For purchase or product inquiries please contact the store directly at 213-747-8718.
