Ho-Ho-Hobo!

My friend, Jax works at Hobo International, the home of Hobo Bags. Every year, right about this time, meaning just in time to do your holiday shopping, they have a massive warehouse sale. And by massive, I mean 50% to 70% off the retail prices. They have sample, prototype, and other wallets, handbags, clutches, wristlets, totes, shoulder bags and more! And they come in leathers, skins and prints. hoboI have a Hobo wallet that I’ve been using for more than a year now, and I love it! Black patent with a fabulous black and white print inside. It’s a fabulous wallet… and it came from last year’s sale. I am looking for my winter handbag now – gotta get rid of the current Kate Spade, which is looking a bit summery. So I am scouting their website to get some ideas of what I want. And one of the things I really like about Hobo, besides their great designs, is that they’re a woman-owned, local business. Always a good thing!Hobo Warehouse Sale 2Jax is offering one winner, who must be local to the Baltimore/Washington DC area (unless you want to fly in for this event) an additional 25% off their total purchase. You could eliminate your entire holiday shopping at this one event!  Just leave a comment below and Connor-the-Wonder-Dog will pick a winner on Thursday, November 17th. The winner will receive a special e-mail coupon to use when shopping at the warehouse sale (just the sale, not stores or on-line, sorry!). hobo bagsI will see you there!

  2. I would love to visit their sale! I had no idea there was actually a "hobo" I thought it was just an adjective like "stylish". To also know that they are local is wonderful. I may go to the sale whether a win the extra discount or not.

  6. I bought a Hobo quite a few years ago. Very well made. I think I just might have to go to this event. Thanks for the heads up.
