    Looking for purse handles

    Hey! I'm pretty new this site, but I'm addicted already!
    I'm looking for inexpensive, but cool purse handles, wooden, plastic, bamboo, whatever!

    Anyone know of any great sources in NYC?
    How bout the web?

    That's a great site, chandradi!

    I agree with deborahthecraft, those purse handles seem out of line, price wise, so I was thinking last night about alternatives:

    Drawer handles -- may not always be cheap if you buy them new, but at least there's a bit more variety and you can get them cheap at the thrift stores, or off old furniture. Might work perfectly for cigar box style purses.

    Eyelets and beaded wire -- Eyelets would be for a wooden box...screw them in, and attach the wire. With a fabric purse, you could punch a hole on the edge of the bag and attach the wire that way.

    And there's always good old fabric. You can do just about anything with it, too.

    Hope this helps!

    Flatcat, just wanted to let you know I was in JoAnn fabrics last night & they now have their own line of purse handles (in the section with interfacing, notions, etc). They looked pretty cool, too -- some bamboo, neat wooden ones, etc.

    Not sure if there's a location in NYC but they do seem to be all over the place.

    one quick caution about umie, you must purchase at least 6 of one type of handle for it not to be considered a sample order which is non refundable. I've bought lots of handles from them though and they have been fine to work with so far (knock on wood!)

    Oh and get the catalog because the web site is near impossible to navigate :}

    Michael's also sell handles (at least here in CA) but I think they are around the same price as joanns

    purlsoho.com has some nice ones - they're on the $$ side though

    I'm a big fan of using leftover fabric! You can add big beads, braid it together, just sew it into strips, whatever you can imagine. I also love the idea of knitting or crocheting a purse handle, but it would have to be a strong knit for it to hold up. You can also check out thrift stores. Some of the purses may be crappy, but the handles are perfectly reuseable, and they're probably really inexpensive.
