Design your own luxury Italian leather handbag company, Laudi Vidni in the 1000 Block of Armitage is now hosting parties. What makes this a super nifty business pull, is that Owner Laura Kofoid has decided that a portion of all of the sales from parties thrown at the shop go to a charity, organization, or social cause of your choice.
We're thinking it would be great for girls nights out, school board fundraisers, pink rallies for breast cancer, Mashable meetups or just because everyone wants to design their own bag, clutch, purse or pouch. We recently saw first hand their studio and event space and full-service kitchen (did we mention that the hors d'oeuvres & Champagne are on the house) and it can easily hold up anywhere from five to fifty people.
Laudi Vidni selects soft imported leathers in a brilliant spectrum of colors, some of which are exclusive to the store. The myriad of hardware and embellishments are easy to choose from with the suggestions and sample bags in the shop and with the help of the staff you'll find it to be the easiest thing in the world - you'll want a custom bag every season.
