Product Description

This is the small shoulder bag.  My wife likes this women’s canvas handbag as a “game day” bag on her outings to Fenway Park.  A roomy purse, but not large enough to be a beach bag.  Available in both open top or zippered top, and constructed of #4 cotton canvas duck and ether army canvas or #8 canvas duck, see choices on the custom color options page.  This women’s canvas handbag matches the Valley Cove bag, the Two Bush bag, and the Island Raider bag, all of which are larger.

The perfect women’s canvas handbag

Uniquely stylish, durable good looks, and built to last a lifetime.  The 42nd and Broadway bag by Sailsmith Bags could possibly be the best women’s canvas handbag on the market today anywhere near it’s price range.  Compare this bag to anything else of similar price and I am confident you will see the value.  I am so sure of it’s strength, I back your purchase with a 100 year warranty.

 Why buy a Sailsmith bag instead of a “big brand” bag?

A Sailsmith Bag is produced by one person, me.  I fabricate your 42nd and Broadway bag from start to finish, ensuring the highest quality available.  As I offer a 100 year warranty I am confident in the durability of every Sailsmith Bag that passes out the door into a customers hands.  There are no little “errors” glossed over by trim as may happen at a larger bag making facility with workers who are not as concerned about quality.   Your bag will only cost a little bit more and you will always know who made your Sailsmith Bag, me, A. Christos Contakos.

    This purse is just what I wanted! Preppy, summery and sturdy! And big enough to fit my camera too!

    Great bag. I use it daily as a purse. It has plenty of room for everything I need without being bulky. Needs a couple more pockets to be perfect.
