Barrington Gifts Review

I finally decided to take the leap and splurge on a Barrington Gifts bag! I did my research and read tons of reviews prior to ordering; they were so useful! Today, I am giving you my full review on the latest addition to my closet: St. Anne Zippered Tote by Barrington Gifts.

Customer Service is at an all-time high! The day after I placed my order I realized that the package would require a signature upon delivery, so I needed to have it sent to my work instead of home! I emailed customer service to inquire about changing my address, and received a response within 10 minutes! They updated my delivery info & I was all set!

Your order will most likely ship to you faster than you think! Barrington’s website states that personalized orders can take up to 10-14 days to arrive to you; however my order shipped just 2 days after I placed it! *Allow for more time when ordering around holidays, etc.*

And the most asked question…

The products are worth the price! The product is so well-made & packaged when it arrives! The box was large and flat, ensuring that the bag I ordered never got bent in the mail. When I opened the box, my tote was in a huge, heavy cotton, dust bag with a draw string ribbon. As soon as I opened the dust bag I could smell the genuine leather bottom & handles. I love how spacious the St. Anne Tote is & and the large zippered interior pocket. You can order this bag with or without a zipper closure; I opted for the zipper so that I could close it up nicely for travel!  While there is a slight price difference for the zippered option, it’s not enough to sway your decision, so definitely opt for what will be most functional for you!

Pro Tip: When you first access the Barrington site, input your email address to save 10% off your first purchase! While initially 10% may not seem like much, if you’re ordering a nearly $200 tote like I did, saving almost $20 is a big help!

Tips For Creating Personalized Items:

  • Practicality is key! If this item is a splurge for you, make sure you pick out something you will use often! Whether that’s a work bag (like me!) a glasses case, or cosmetic bag! Make sure you will get your money’s worth out of the item!
  • Select colors & prints that will go with most of your wardrobe! Obviously this only applies if you’re purchasing a handbag or everyday tote; think about what colors you wear most!
  • Make a few mock up’s before you pick one out! The template generator is such a nice feature on the website! I must’ve made 10 different mock ups of my tote before I decided on which one to order! Explore all of your options, you just may surprise yourself with what you like!
  • Your package will require a signature upon delivery to you, so be sure to send it to an appropriate address where someone will be present to accept it!

 

Care Instructions:

Scripted directly from the Barrington Gifts website are as follows:

“We recommend taking a small amount of detergent, such as Oxy-Clean, and warm water and using a clean toothbrush to scrub the stained area. You can also try using a “wet ones” wipe, depending on what has gotten on your bag. You can scrub the printed part of the bag vigorously. The colors on the nylon-canvas will not fade. Try to stay away from the leather portions of the bag when scrubbing the stain.”

I am so glad I decided to splurge & treat myself to this St. Anne Tote! It has exceeded my expectations so far, and I am so pumped to carry it every day! If you have any other questions please feel free to send me an email at karascupoftea@gmail.com or drop me a DM! I’m always happy to help!

 

XO, Kara
