The Metropolitan Opera Shop has the most amazing gifts – everything from books to jewelry, CDs, DVDs , toys for kids, and tons of other unique accessories. When I came across these beautifully crafted musical instrument handbags, I knew I had to feature them as one of our holiday gift ideas. The Piano Wooden Handbag is made from acacia wood, individually carved, painted, and finished by hand by women in a small community in the Philippines. With its keyboard design, a shape reminiscent of a grand piano, black-satin lining with small interior pocket, and a secure gunmetal lock, this bag is definitely a conversation piece. (Sale Price: $264.00) The Guitar Wooden Bag is also made from acacia wood and individually carved, painted, and finished in the shape of a guitar. The interior is lined in black satin and features a custom gunmetal lock and wooden handle that rests comfortably on the wrist. (Sale Price: $256.00) The Violin Wooden Handbag has a striking violin design, black-satin lining with small interior pocket, and a concealed black shoulder strap. (Sale Price: $216.00). All bags are available at the Met Opera Shop. Enjoy free shipping on U.S. orders over $75.00 now through December 18, 2014.
