We love sharing links to cool camera-related stuff, so I thought I’d blog about a gift I gave my wife for Christmas last week.

She had been wanting a new camera bag, so I Googled  “cool camera bags for women“.  Unfortunately, nothing that cool really came up, and I was sort of surprised at how many camera bags are geared toward men. Most of the bags I came across were black, which is cool with me, but I knew my wife wanted something a little more feminine, and that looked more like a purse.

I went to ETSY.com, where you can find all sorts of handmade goodness, and after some searching, I stumbled upon a chevron-patterned bag that looked just like what I thought my wife would want.

But wouldn’t you know it, that particular bag was sold out. (Of course it was – it’s killer!)

I really, really wanted to get her that bag though, so I took a chance and contacted the seller (Darby Mack) who was AWESOME! She wrote me back and said that she would make my wife a bag in time for Christmas.  I was blown away because I had written her on December 18th, (#procrastinator) and sure enough, the bag showed up on my doorstep on December 23rd.

My wife was super happy with the bag. It’s perfect for a DSLR and a few lenses. It also has a few pockets on the inside and outside for all your extra stuff.

Anyway- I just wanted to pass that link along in case anyone else out there was looking for a bag like I was.

Happy New Year!

    I think I like the best so far of all the “girl” bags I’ve seen. Ditto for the thanks on sharing. Etsy here I come too!

  • Kerry Moody

    What a cool gift! I love etsy and have shopped there, but didn’t even think to look there when I bought a “bag” from Vera Bradley to carry my camera instead of the manly black bag.

  • jezuri

    Awesome! Thanks for the info. I need a new camera bag and I love the one you bought your wife.

  • Erin @ The Impatient Gardener

    Ooh, that’s great. I never knew there was such a thing as a stylish camera bag. I just got a new EOS M and I need a small bag for it. Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for the recommendation — I have been looking for a good camera bag that was cute, and this one is exactly what I was looking for! Just ordered it :)

    Thanks for the info. Even though I did not buy a camera bag, I did buy an insert for my tote bags.

    look up “3annies” on facebook = another great line of camera bags for women!

    • Vickie Cunningham

      I own two 3annies leather bags, and they are the best I’ve found. I’ve owned two large bags by Kelly Moore and one small one by Robyn Porteen. The Audrey Lu (3annies) is now by go-to bag. It’s amazing how much gear I can pack into it, and the quality on a 1 to 10 is a 100!!!!
