Once again we’ve gone global!! Well, kinda. We’ve got a new addition to the JIOT gang and she hails from all the way across the pond. Charlie Smith is the creative mum behind “by charlie” and she’s recently sent us a selection of her purse and key charms. With over half a dozen to choose from, whatever your style preference there’s a ‘charming’ piece for you. Oh, and at only 10 bucks a pop you don’t have to justify this purchase like you did that latest designer bag…

Silver Leaf Bag Charm, $10
