How I Found My Favorite Bags

This is a guest blog entry by Judith F. of Manhattan, an enthusiastic fan of Hester van Eeghen's designs.
"I was in Amsterdam last year for the first time and on one of my many walks passed Hester's store. Unfortunately it was closed. I made note of the address so I could return the next day because the handbags that I could see through the window just overwhelmed me. 
And so the very next day I returned and bought three handbags and a credit card case.  I purchased a red bag that resembles the Pope's head wear with a purple bottom, a black and white "polka dot" clutch bag lined in pink with a strap for shoulder or cross body, and the most wonderful handbag made of stingray skin with a handle and also a strap - it was featured as a prize on an email I received recently.  
Each time I wear any of the three handbags, I have people stop me on the street to inquire where I bought them. It makes it so much easier lately because I can send them to the website. 
In Manhattan where one sees the most fabulous bags carried or draped over brilliantly dressed women, Hester's handbags still get the most attention because they are unique.

I don't like looking like everyone else and these bags have certainly helped me keep my own look."  - Judith F.
