The Westmount Independent

By Martin C. Barry - June 4, 2013

Westmounter Alice Goldbloom launched an on-line handbag-retailing business in April. She said it is attracting customers from all over the world, and until recently a surprising amount of her consigned stock was being supplied by Westmount residents.

"In the beginning there was a lot, although now they're coming in from all over" says the Anwoth Rd. resident who launched two months ago.

Goldbloom's side specializes in the sale of beautiful handbags on consignment- from high-end designer bags by Ferragamo, Fendi and Dior, to more moderately-priced vintage pieces. They range in price from $100 to $2,000.

Goldbloom said she uses a simple business model: she only accepts handbags in excellent condition and she will ship anywhere - even to Westmount.

Some of the bags are for sale at Nee Nah on Victoria Ave. In turn, Goldbloom carries some of Nee Nah's jewelry and scarves on the LOVEthatBAG website.
