Shop + Tell: Anna

Anna Featherly, 1/2 of AB Sutton (awesomely handcrafted bespoke leather goods).
How often do you indie-shop?
For fashion, not too often... less than I'd like to, a few time a year. For food, all the time!
Scores...Yummy potatoes from my neighbor's farm and garlic from the farmer's market. Brought home in a tote from The Fair School.
How does it make you feel?
Supportive, responsible, relaxed, healthy, happy.
What made you buy it?
We are lucky to live in the country, surrounded by small farms. There are roadside stands everywhere and the markets are full of great produce. I had a craving for Jack's Provencal potato pancakes, so we went out shopping for the right potatoes. Our friends run The Fair School and we have found their totes are perfect for carrying market produce. We have over a half dozen and they do a great job holding everything from wine bottles and frozen pastured-pork, to delicate lettuces. Plus, they look great hanging on the kitchen door!

What an awesome shop! I just got my iphone and now I'm coveting one of those custom leather slips! Life in the country sounds beautiful as well...
