Trash to Treasure

Trash to Treasure Trash to Treasure creates "thrifty couture" handbags and accessories, and we love DIY home decor and vintage anything. This page is for sharing all of these things, and everything in-between.

Store! (www.tttreasure.com) Blog! (http://blog.tttreasure.com). Founded in 2010 by Haydee Letonja (that's me), Trash to Treasure is a family-operated business that designs and creates handmade couture handbags and accessories that that I'm proud to use myself. And they don't cost an arm and a leg because you need those to wear our bags! A favorite is our Keepsake Couture Handbag. If you have a wool sweater that is too small, no longer with the times, or evokes fond memories but has seen better days, then we'll give it a second life as your very own, very special couture handbag. Feel free to drop me a note at [email protected]. I read and respond to every email.

Mission: Design and create "thrifty couture" handbags and accessories that I'm proud to use myself.
