Purses Galore!

Purses Galore!


If you are looking for the perfect purse for YOU, come to Close to You. We carry the top quality and selection on the island.

A purse is not only the necessary item we carry, holding everything we need for the day – it is a fashion statement! The right purse can accessorize your outfit, show your personality and bring a multitude of compliments your way.

With new fall fashions and great designer ideas coming into our store every day, I have some wonderful news for you!  I’ve enjoyed watching what Joseph Ribkoff will come up with next because he has always been timeless in designs – yet he presents surprises each season in amazing new fashions and now ‘must haves’.

The news is, if you purchase Joseph Ribkoff fashions for a total of $300 or more you will have your choice of a FREE JR tote bag or smaller jean purse which we’re sure you will love. We’ve also heard a rumour that JR will be venturing into the jean business – we’ll let you know. 

Here’s a picture of Donna holding the new JR jean purses. Trust Joseph Ribkoff for coming up with something new and exciting!

The following pictures and the featured image at the top of this blog post show some classic purses by JR and other great designers like Frank Lyman, Celine Dion, Fly and many more. Check them out when you’re in the store because each line comes with different features as a bonus.

The Celine Dion totes include a small evening bag for the gals on the go, and some of them have an attached cosmetic bag, key attachments, or matching change purses. You’ll be sure to find the right one for you.

With all the airline discounts available this time of year and the cooler weather many of our customers are planning to travel to warmer places soon. It’s essential that you keep your travel documents secure. We have some amazing anti-theft bags with body/shoulder straps, so you can keep your purse Close to You even when you’re shopping locally.

Most passports and many credit and debit cards have RFID chips (Radio Frequency Identification) which uniquely identifies an object, animal or person. Your personal information such as name, date of birth, account name and number, date of issue and expiration date can be exposed in the electromagnetic spectrum. Clever thieves will scan cards to a reader which will convert the radio waves to a more usable data. Not only your credit and debit cards are at risk, you could lose your identity, too.


The Baggallini bag was invented by two flight attendants 20 years ago because they saw the need for better handbags, something stylish with a lot of functionality. Made from a super lightweight and durable material, they designed pockets and compartments to hold all your essentials. Now these bags are protected with RFID-blocking pockets, so your information will be safe from unauthorized scanning.

The Travelon Anti-Theft bag is a little different because it has a stainless-steel wire mesh inside the bag and the strap to prevent ‘slash and grab’. You won’t see it and probably won’t feel it either. This anti-theft bag also has locking compartments and straps to prevent pick-pocketing. RFID protected slots and pockets are built-in to prevent any scanning of information from your cards.

Both the Baggallini and Travelon bags come in a multitude of colors and styles for you to choose from. Pick one that is uniquely YOU!

At Close to You we genuinely care about our customers. We want you to look great and travel safe.

See you in the store soon.
