If you’re the type that loves designer shoes and handbags then you’re not going to want to miss the premier debut of Elf Footwear and Handbag Trunk Show this weekend. Bend’s Melissa Kuchta will be unveiling her handmade products at Desperado in the Old Mill. Because everything is handmade she’ll have leather and color samples available and a tape measure to ensure a perfect fit.
“I think what sets us apart is everything we do is truly made by hand. Even our patterns are cut by hand,” says Kuchta. “When we say handmade, we really mean it. Every pair of shoes is double and triple checked.”
She and her partner currently have 400 different styles of shoes and an extensive handbag line. These products are currently available in 50 stores nationwide as well as Japan, Australia and Canada. This will be the first time her products are available in Bend.
The Elf – Everyone. Living. Free. Trunk Show will be Saturday, May 30 from 12-7pm at Desperado in the Old Mill District at 330 SW Powerhouse Drive.
