Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to introduce you to Alaina Marie! This Maine based DIYer turned business woman launch a handmade line of clutches made from the plastic mesh that fishermen use for bait bags! Starting as a side job just 2 years ago, her clutches are already sold in J. Crew and Anthropologie! Not to mention her own store front in Old Port, Maine.
My girlfriend Laura and I just got back from a wonderful road trip up the coast, and while we were taking in the fresh air and delicious lobster, we also stumbled upon some really amazing local artists and their shops.
Alaina Marie was one of our very favorites. Not only is she lovely and welcoming, she is also incredibly talented. Inspired by her hometown of Portland, Maine, Alaina took something familiar to her surroundings and used it in a completely new way.
The fun use of color and fabric make this the perfect summer clutch!
Thanks for letting us drop by Alaina! Keep kicking butt Lady Boss!
