Bag a bar­gain at Bagatelle

Central Leader - - Lifestyles -

There’s a rea­son why Bagatelle bags are cov­eted – they are beau­ti­ful and they won’t leave a deep hole in your pocket.

That per­haps ex­plains the steady stream of cus­tomers you’ll find at this de­light­ful and eclec­tic St He­liers Bay store.

Lo­cated close to the water­front on St He­liers Bay Rd, Bagatelle is cel­e­brat­ing its first birth­day. From day one, owner Di Hol­land has taken pains to cre­ate a niche store where you can step away from the or­di­nary and buy some­thing unique yet af­ford­able.

The store is chock-abloc with bags, scarves, sun hats, spe­cial oc­ca­sion hats, jew­ellery, belts, watches, men’s wal­lets and ac­ces­sories.

There are loads of in­ex­pen­sive gifts so you can buy a lot for a lot less from trendy to clas­sic hand­bags that never go out of style.

You’ll also find evening clutches and fas­ci­na­tors that will add a dash of glam­our on those spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

Christ­mas, New Year’s, Box­ing Day or any­thing in be­tween, you can count on see­ing a smile on the face of your loved ones when they re­ceive a Bagatelle gift.

“Fash­ions fade but style never goes out of fash­ion,” says Di, who is busy or­der­ing new stuff for the hol­i­days.

In­deed, Di speaks from ex­pe­ri­ence. Hav­ing lived in Los An­ge­les for over 16 years, this North­ern Ire­land lady has ob­served the in­dus­try closely.

Im­por­tantly, there’s no com­pro­mise on qual­ity – bags are crafted from Ital­ian and New Zealand leather or other qual­ity ma­te­rial.

If you are stuck for a gift idea or want some­thing unique, Di and her staff – who know the lo­cal com­mu­nity in­ti­mately – are ready with ad­vice. They can even source prod­ucts for you if you can’t find it here.

Lay­bys are avail­able at Bagatelle and Di of­fers the op­tion of tak­ing any prod­uct with you so you can get the opin­ion of fam­ily and friends be­fore you spend your hard earned money.

Bagatelle is a world re­moved from your aver- age bulk store. In keep­ing with the vil­lage at­mos­phere of the mar­ket, Di has cre­ated a store where the friendly staff are more keen on build­ing a re­la­tion­ship than mak­ing a quick sale.

So whether you’re looking for the fash­ion­ably hip, some­thing sim­ple, or the trendy styles spot­ted on the arms of celebri­ties, this is the place.

Bagatelle, Shop 8, St He­liers Mall. Phone 5756192.
