Spicer Bags

Spicer Bags - Handbag Artists

San Francisco, California

Spicer Bags is operated by mother-daughter team Bonnie Gemmell and Sarah Stanley.

With marketing backgrounds but absolutely no manufacturing experience, they took a leap of faith and purchased Spicer Bags from Sally Spicer Rankine (the founder) in March of 2013. Sally was battling cancer and was going to close down the much-loved 13-year old business unless she found someone willing to carry on the legacy. Well, she found two people!

Today, Bonnie and Sarah are having a blast designing new bag shapes, picking out fabric, attending local artisan events and running a manufacturing studio (who would have ever thought!) They are 100% committed to manufacturing in America.
