O.C. Styles Handcrafted Gifts & Accessories (Etsy) Review and Giveaway Halloween Spooktacular #3



Once again we are off on our mission to bring you the best Halloween décor and accessories to make this Haunting Season the best ever and what is the one thing you have to have when taking your children out Trick-Or-Treating during the witching hour? Well….I’ll tell you! You must have a Trick-Or-Treat bag for them to carry all their accumulated goodies in right? Right! I can tell you that last year when we took “Bug” around the neighborhood we ended up having to carry a larger bag to empty his small pumpkin bucket but I think the smaller and decorated baskets/buckets/sacks are so much better than a grocery bag to have them carry around and just makes the Holiday that much more special so one thing I really wanted to find for this Halloween is a unique one of a kind Trick-or-Treat bag for “Bug” so that he had his very own unique bag to carry around so of course my first stop on my journey was ETSY, I love all things handmade and you just don’t get the quality in stores that you do when you buy handmade so naturally that was why I chose Etsy as my first stop. And after spending some time searching I found the perfect bag for my little man at O.C. Styles Handcrafted Gifts & Accessories and I was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to review it right here on my blog!

About O.C. Styles Handcrafted Gifts & Accessories (Taken from Shop):

Growing up around a family full of creative people, I have always been inspired to create, craft and sew.

**************************************************

Being a mom of a beautiful little girl, a cute dog and a wife, I put my creativity to use everyday within my family. My daughter inspires me daily with the way she sees the world around her.

**************************************************

I love to create, sew and craft. I am a fabric maniac!!!

Having such passion for the beautiful and creative things, OC Styles brings all of these together to create unique, stylish, gifts for everyone.

**************************************************

I hope you love my handcrafted creations! Enjoy!

My Thoughts:

I was given the opportunity to choose the perfect Trick-Or-Treat bag for “Bug” to use this Halloween and after much debate on which one we liked the best (we really liked them all) we came to agree on the Halloween Trick or Treat Candy Bag (Spooky Hollow) and I have to say that the photos do not do this bag justice it is absolutely adorable!!! I’m loving the different faces on the pumpkins and the Owls….I’m really drawn to the Owls for some reason! I think the ribbons on this bag is the perfect mix of colors and really draws the bag together and I also feel that they make this bag perfect for little boys and girls alike!

Once the bag arrived at our door (very quickly I must say) I couldn’t wait to get it out and inspect the stitching and craftsmanship, I am beyond pleased with both the stitching and craftsmanship of this bag and I have a feeling that it will stand up way beyond just one Halloween night like some other bags we have tried. I figure this trick-or-treat bag will be used for several years to come. And of course the most important thing to me was what “Bug” thought about it and he absolutely loves it! He has carried it around saying Trick-Or-Treat ever since we got it so I think it’s going to make a heck of a good bag this year and best of all it’s unique and not everyone will be carrying one of these beauties!

I also want to take a minuet to mention that O.C. Styles Handcrafted Gifts & Accessories has so much more than Trick-Or-Treat bags, they offer Hot/Cold Drink Cozies, Bridal Packs, Purses/Bags, Aprons, Card Holders and more so be sure to head on over to their Etsy shop and see what goodies you can find.

Bottom Line:

We are beyond thrilled with our Trick-Or-Treat bag that we received to review and I feel that it will hold up way beyond a couple of Halloween’s and we are looking forward to using this bag for years to come! I feel like when you order from O.C. Styles you are getting a whole lot more than a handmade item you are also getting love in every stitch and it shows in the products that Michelle really enjoys what she does and wants to make sure your only getting the best and long lasting products!

Buy It:
