I don’t know where to begin and this is my 2nd review ever. I don’t usually write them which is bad on my part, BUT I have to for Zoe’s Bag Boutique. Karen, the owner and the only one behind this store is extraordinary at her craft, customer service and her imagination of the beauty of bags. My daughter’s 19th birthday was less than 2 weeks away and I was looking for the perfect gift that wasn’t the usual things. My daughter who is majoring in elementary education, is a book nerd, lover, worm, etc. I had already bought book related items, gift card, necklace, bracelet and of course books. As I was searching I fell upon Karen’s store. She had this unique book pattern but so many bags, so many decisions and yet still I was not sure. So I reached out to her, asked her opinion on which bag, what style, etc would she suggest. After hearing my thoughts and showing her the purse my daughter uses now, she told me her suggestion, sent me to look at various items as well as, since it will be custom made she doubted it would be here in time. Very honest, upfront and I loved that. She was not going to give me any false hope or rush and maybe not do the bag it’s full justice. It wasn’t worth the order or a potential new customer. How could you not find that refreshing and trustworthy. I knew I was covered with gifts for that day so I decided to go with Karen’s suggestion. WOW is what I have to say. She kept in constant touch with me each step of the way. She wouldn’t let me pay yet even though she was starting it. She sent me updates and was so easy to get in touch with. She then contacts me that it will probably be shipped Thursday or Friday, this being about a week since we first chatted and Friday being my daughter’s birthday. So at last minute I asked about matching wallet and accessories. I was wrong to do that, I know how hard she was working just to get the custom bag done besides all her other orders and customers, but I had just thought of it. Again, she responded with items she had and I picked the Scooter to have with same pattern. I received email for payment and on Wednesday received email that it was shipped. ALREADY??? My gift, arrived ON the day of my daughter’s birthday to my surprise. Basically a week from start to finish. I didn’t get to look at before my daughter so we just opened it right out of shipping package. I will admit, I was worried, I hadn’t seen any of her products in person and in pictures, they don’t always show everything. In this case, that is true. Pictures did not show the details, the perfect styling, Karen’s craft, love of what she does, which you clearly see in finished product and the beautiful pop of color in the book patterns. This Tootsie was perfect. So perfect that my daughter cried at the excitement of her gift. Real tears. She was in awe and held it to her chest like a baby holds her favorite teddy. So then I cried. My daughter had a few minutes before her friends were picking her up, she ran out of the room to finish getting ready or so I thought. Instead she was transferring her items from old bag to new one. She said I can’t wait to show this baby off. She grabbed her book and said, “Even though I won’t be reading tonight, I can’t carry my “book bag” without a book.” Karen, thank you so much for helping make the perfect day even more perfect. Your work ethic is above par. Your product and workmanship is a work of art. You now have customers for life. Thank you again.

Well, it must be Christmas in July! Thank you very much, Karen!
I received my lovely bag a few days ago along with the three flaps, and I am overcome with joy. Everything is so lovely; even more than I imagined.
And my goodness; how in the world did you know I would choose to use the Buddhist flap first? You must have extraordinary intuition.
Ah! Words really cannot describe my happiness.
Again, my heartfelt thank you to you. I will definitely be purchasing from you again in the near future.
You are amazing.
Warm wishes and much appreciation and respect!

I just received the Wisteria bag which I purchased for my mom for Mother's Day and it is GORGEOUS!!! I am completely blown away by the craftsmanship, the attention to detail, and the fabric!! It is 10 times more beautiful in person than in the photos. This bag is just incredible! I will never buy another purse from a store as long as Zoe's is still around!

Just received my third bag (this time I got the large SueBee) which is also going to be a gift. One of these days, I have to order one just for me! It's perfect (as always) and again I have to say Karen is the best person to work with, she's kind, sweet and knows how to rock a fabric.
Thanks again, from a loyal customer and fan.

Hi Karen, I got my first shipment of bags today and I was more than thrilled! I loved my 'Contigo' bag, and my wallets, and purses. I was so pleased with them and can't wait to get my other shipments. Your work is superb and surpassed all my expectations, and I had high expectations. Never again will I buy a bag anywhere else. I am so pleased with the customer service I have received from you as well. Can't wait for the rest of them, and really, there is no other place to go for beautiful, one of a kind bags. Super thrilled and I already got compliments! Taking my treasures to Kauai in a few weeks so I will send photos for you.

The Sue Bee bag was perfect for holding the tiles for our Rummikub game. The quality of the bag is only surpassed by the pleasure of communicating with Karen.

LOVE MY RACCOON JR! With the mini wallet, it's EVERYTHING I NEED! It is now my every day bag, it's lightweight, yet can hold dvds and books from the library without being the size of a large tote. And it's even better in person than the pix, as beautiful as the pix are!
THANKS for making this for me, Karen!

I have the Leopard wallet-on-a-string and LOVE it! I love the convenience it offers. I love the material and print. I love how I can just reach in and grab what I need at a moment's notice.
I recently worked with Karen on 2 custom orders that should be arriving today. I keep staring at the pics she sent until they get here. I cannot wait to see them in person and feel the furs.
Karen, you are super nice, easy to work with, fun to communicate with, and an all-around awesome person that I'd love to continue working with on future projects.

I ordered the most beautiful, OOAK drawstring bag as a gift for a friend in need of a knitting project bag. It arrived today - super fast shipping - and it is stunning in person : Thanks for a gorgeous bag at an insanely reasonable price!

I love my Breazy iphone purse! I'm not one to carry much, so this is perfect to run in and out of the store and put in your pocket.

as the owner of a few of Karen's pieces, it's great to see her mentioned on the Funky Finds blog. She makes some of the nicest bags and wallets out there. And she's a truly nice person, as well.
