Have You Seen This Etsy Shop?

One look at Happy Kathy on Etsy might just have you taking a stroll down memory lane. Retro fabrics, Pac Man themed passport covers, adorable bicycle wallets and as if those things weren't enough to send me straight back to my carefree days of the 1980's, all of these designs are created by Sarah from Astoria, Oregon, the setting for The Goonies! Not only has Sarah captured my youth in her designs, she also has modern and floral designs to please all tastes. Wallets, totes, handbags and more can be found at Happy Kathy. Named after her late mother Kathy, Sarah enjoyed seeing her smile and wanted to make that memory live on in her designs. I am sure after you see her shop you will agree with me that smiles are contagious at Happy Kathy!

Passport holder handmade fabric carrying cover for passport

I couldn't resist featuring the ghosties, but Sarah is open to custom items as well. If looking for something in a different fabric feel free to send her a convo. This fits U.S. passports. Dimensions are listed on Happy Kathy.


Large zip pouch perfect for organizing beauty items

This pouch would be perfect for travel and the Little Red Riding Hood print could not be cuter! Featuring a zipper pull items placed inside will neatly stay in place.

Handmade purse shoulder bag owl and bird woodland

Green, pink and aqua...the colors of spring are bound to bring happiness to all. With a bird design on front and an owl hanging out on the back, this bag is perfect to tote magazines, your iPad, all the essentials!
