Mary Frances Shaffer of the California Bay-area designs handbags and accessories to suit most any style. Exotic components, unique fabrics, stones, beads and trimmings richly ornament her handbags and belts. Various processes are employed in construction, and the end result always has a "one-of-a-kind" flavor. In fact, all bags are limited editions, limited by component availability and new designs introduced many times per year!
