Festival Purses - The Clear Plastic Trend

Festival Purses - The Clear Plastic Trend

Over the years I have made bohemian Switch Purses for festivals, especially for my favorite fest, Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. But now, because of security reasons, my Switch Purses are prohibited.  This is such a bummer since it was great for business, but also such a practical, affordable and fashionable festival accessory.  They do accept wristlets, which I make.  But wristlets don’t always hold enough for festivals.   Sooo, my question for all of you--should I start making clear plastic Switch Purses and try to make them festival fashionable? 🤔 I wonder what would make it look fun...

It's Summer!! Perfect for Switch Purses!

Jill Louden

School is finally out; traffic is lighter and the sun is shining--that can only be SUMMER! Summer is my favorite season.  Everyone is outside.  Things are more relaxed.  Clothes are lighter.  And it is the best season  to wear the Switch Purse.  I just went to the Firefly Music Festival and my necessary accessory besides a water bottle was my Switch Purse. Hands free while walking and dancing.  Fits everything I need. Safe. But they are also great for vacation and the beach.  Throw in your essentials and just go! Who wants to worry about a large heavy bag, when...
