Introducing HQ beach bags!!

Detail blue/orange
I recently said there was something new and exciting for Holiday Queen and I'm pleased to announce that I now have a small collection of neoprene beach bags and pouches for sale.

I think I'm pretty qualified to know what to take to the beach and finding a bag that works for me has been an ongoing search. I have had some lovely bags in the past .. baskets, canvas even leather and they have been fine up to a point. Baskets look great but are hard to pack, leather can be heavy and cotton canvas, well it's been alright but not quite sturdy enough and fiddly when you're rummaging around looking for your lotion, phone, camera etc.

I needed a new bag for my next beach holiday and started by trawling the internet. I couldn't quite find the right thing and in a bolt from the blue I decided I was going to make my own. I didn't have a clue where to start. A few baby steps later and there I was sitting at my friend's sewing machine knocking up my first bag. It kind of steam rollered from there and here I am introducing my product to you. 

Neoprene is lightweight, waterproof, sand resistant and wont rub and damage your skin or clothing. If you place the bag on wet sand, your things will stay dry inside, and the pouches keep everything organised the way you want it.

If you like what you see, you can buy the bags and pouches from my Holiday Queen facebook page. I shall be introducing new products as I go along so keep in touch for further updates.

If you live in East London, they are also available from Sublime shop in Victoria Park and Clerkenwell.

Thanks so much to the lovely Kirsty Gallacher for modelling both sizes of bags - orange/blue large and yellow/black medium
