Abigail Road -- Review and Giveaway


The pillars of environmentalism are the three "R"s, Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle! While we often focus on reducing our waste and of course recycling what we can after use but reusing things is sometimes limited to the scope of our imaginations! Anna of
Abigail Road takes Reuse seriously! It's the foundation of her business and is a result of her expanded imagination and talent! Anna creates beautifully re-crafted clothing and accesories from rejected, used clothing and other fabric items! Abigail Road's three "R"s Rejected, Reused, Reworn. Anna's designs are inspiring and creative!

I was sent this great "Shabby-Chic" messenger bag made from fabrics which in their former lives served as curtains and a shirt! Anna uses only cleaned materials which are not dirty, damaged, nor too-worn. All her materials are smoke-free and pet-free! All her designs are one-of-a-Kind creations so you are assured a unique piece! My bag is fantastic! It is well sewn and the large wooden rings holding on the strap add a great retro feel! I really appreciate retro style but Anna's pieces could satisfy the personal style of so many!

Because Anna uses inexpensive materials she has fabulous prices! Delicate summer tops as the one shown here are only $8.00! You could purchase a whole ensemble including a top, skirt for just over $20 and add a bag or jewellery piece for another $10!

I believe Anna's business concept is a great step in the right direction and is truly ingenius! I love promoting local talent! Abigail Road is run out of Regina, Saskatchewan and is a real hidden gem that I hope will flourish!


Abigail Road is generously offering to give one lucky reader a beautiful Floral Scarf Handbag! The handbag has a black lining and a drawstring closure!
