Purse Hooks are the latest hot accessory for women who carry handbags!

Familiar yet with handbag holders, those strong hooks that hang over the edge of a table or bar to keep purses close and germ-free? Here at Kyle Design we’ve added our own twist to these up-and-coming must-have accessories that are turning into the coolest new gift idea for women of style.

Unlike other sites that offer you a dozen or two popular images (purse, cat, flower, spiral, shoes, etc. – yes, we have those, too), Kyle Design offers over 400 patterns. Specialized designs include professions, sports, musical instruments, more unusual animals, monograms,  games, crafts, Chinese characters, alcoholic drinks, fruit, trees, desserts and so much more.

Better yet, you decide what color you want, you decide if you prefer silver or gold. Literally, you create the look, we create the purse hook. No need to have a generic handbag hanger, no fear of two women whipping out the same exact holder. And we’re fast. We typically ship within a day or two – even for custom items such as these designer handbag holders.

Choices, Choices: How many possibilities are there? Currently, 440 original designs x 2 metal choices x 19 gorgeous colors = over 16,000 possible looks! How many friends do you have on Facebook? How many of them carry handbags? More than 16,000? I think that the chances are pretty good that you won’t show up at a restaurant or bar with the same purse hanger.

Simple? Yes! They are so easy to use. Simply set handbag holder disc on the edge of table and hook on a purse strap. That’s it!

Interested in Safety? These purse hangers are perfect for holding designer handbags, shopping bags, digital camera, tote bag strap, umbrellas or backpacks where they stay clean, safe and convenient – right next to you at a table or bar. No more worries about forgetting a purse on the back of a chair, an umbrella on the floor, or being distracted and forgetting to keep an eye on your wallet.

We have great designs for professional women such as this purse hook for a pharmacist.

Single? These designer handbag holders are great conversation starters, too! They provide a small window into your world that someone new could run with. Although popular in Europe for years, purse table hooks are new enough here in the U.S. that most people I run into are curious about them.

Support American Designers? California artist Kyle McKeown Mansfield creates all the fun designs and unique patterns found on every handbag caddy. You can be the designer when you design your own purse hook – we’ll make it for you right here in our art studio and promptly ship your personalized purse table hook to you in a velveteen pouch.

Show your creative side, have fun, express the real you! Select a purse hook design/color/metal grouping that is a true reflection of who you are! They make wonderful gifts for her including professional women, working girls, dating singles or the handbag queen.

Happy New Year 2009 – What Will Be New, New, New at Kyle Design

Posted by Kyle Design on January 1, 2009

Stain Glass Fireworks Night Light - Celebrate the New Year and add some excitement to a dark corner!

Stain Glass Fireworks Night Light - Celebrate the New Year and add some excitement to a dark corner!

Happy New Year 2009! Although I didn’t stay up to the bitter end, I know for sure it arrived because I woke up to hear the fireworks in my neighborhood going off at midnight. But now I’m up early (5:00 a.m. and it is oh so quiet outside) and thinking about what I want to add to my site this year.

Kyle Design’s New Year’s Resolutions

1. Finish New Items: It’s time to finish up all my half-started new items and get them up on the site. These include a new line of beaded jewelry, wall mirrors, switch plate guards, magnetic badge holders, 5″ square jewelry or valet boxes (like the Prosperity Box below), among many other items. I don’t think this problem is the result of procrastination so much as distraction from so many things to do….

2. Expand New Thematic Gift Pages: So many designs, so little time….  I added 65 new design series just as the holidays were hitting. I only had time to create a few items each for my new animals, numbers, sports, technical professions, foods, Asian characters and symbols pages. Time to expand the product pages of all those new designs. Yes, we have global products which you can customize with any of our 350+ designs, but customers often prefer to see how a particular design actually looks on a product. We’ll keep at it!

3. Dare I Say It – Create More New Designs: Even after making a big push to get fresh designs done in time for the holidays, there are always more that customers request – usually the day after the cutoff. This year those requests included skiing, a tank, jigsaw puzzle, the numbers 60, 75 and 80, a kitchen theme, New York, Eiffel Tower, field hockey, hope – and the list goes on. Right now, I’m looking at a list of nearly 100 ideas. I do love designing, but it is also very time-consuming and physically exhausting, so I can only do so much at a stretch. If I can kick out 20 or 30 in the next month or so I will be very pleased. If anyone has a suggestion for a new pattern I should be doing, bring it on! Please! I listen, really. No promises, but if there is enough interest you may see it show up in a future design run. {Thank you in advance 😉 .  }

2008 Was A Good Year. Our focus on organization and preparation really paid off during the 2008 holidays – we were really busy (and were very thankful for it)  – but the season has never gone so smoothly or efficiently for us. Not to say we haven’t identified  a couple more areas that could use improvement. (I can’t keep popping off with “oh yeah, that’s something new I just added…” when a customer asks about something that my staff has no idea about.)

One benefit of being in business as long as we have – since 1982 – is that we have the time to work out the kinks and get our act together. But products, times and systems do continue to change, so there are always new challenges. Kudos to my staff for all their great ideas, suggestions, organization, efficiency and depth of knowledge. It keeps our customers – and us – happy.

So here’s to a great 2009 and a happy, happy New Year!
