Meet Your Match Handbags is a locally owned startup company founded by Tiffany Sterling of Upholstery Girl and her daughter Olivia Lacy. They create custom handbags, wristlets and cosmetic bags using genuine leather panels, embroidery, brass zippers and brass rings. Each item is made to order per the customer’s specifications.
“The premise of the company is to build a handbag, wristlet or cosmetic bag that you will love for years to come. Each bag is special and unique. You pick the panels for the purse; we put it together and make the bag of your dreams.” Sterling Says
Inspired by a friend’s suggestion to make them for individuals Tiffany, a single mom, and her daughter, a new University of Arkansas student, began the company several months ago in order to help offset college tuition costs. Tiffany photographs the individual bag panels and Olivia posts them on their Facebook page with the details, names and descriptions for the customer to choose the panels they would like matched to create a bag of their choice.
They would like to increase orders in the future so they are able to expand and hire more people to help sew, package and delivery to customers across the country.
Meet Your Match Handbags can be found on Facebook and physically located inside of Upholstery Girl in Sherman at 217 N. Travis St., open Monday- Saturday 10AM- 4PM. Website coming soon.
