We are proud to announce the U.S. premiere of Jack Georges must expressive leather bag collection.
Jack Georges introduces the SPIKES & SPARROW COLLECTION to the U.S. leather market after its tremendous european reception. The Dutch label “Spikes & Sparrow is a trusted brand with a great presence in northern Europe,” says Mr. Georges. “We worked with them to develop a new collection that combines American and European sensibilities. The result is a line of distinct, vintage styled, vegetable tanned buffalo leather goods with an edginess that gives them a look that is both casual and classic at the same time.”
Indeed, the SPIKES & SPARROW COLLECTION offers a modern twist on handmade leather bags. The collection is borne from simple but refined craftsmanship. The number of gusset pockets in each piece hint at the collection’s versatility.
The SPIKES & SPARROW COLLECTION offers top zip briefcases and messenger bags along with a crossbody and a large day bag. The unique vegetable tanned buffalo leather has great character that will age beautifully with time.
As soon as I saw the new Jack Georges Zip Top Totes I knew the slate colored one had to be mine. These extra large, limited edition totes are perfect for travel (from now on it’ll be my carry on!) and even better suited to my tendency to carry way too many knitting projects around with me!
Right now I’ve got my “Peachy Legwarmers”, my “Blueberry Hoodie” and 3 or 4 different swatches for future projects, all fitting comfortably in my new bag! And it’s a heck of a lot classier than my last beat up, worn thin, dirty, dingy, free-giveaway knitting bag!
My boss Jolie Alony has known all about Jack Georges and his fabulous leathergoods for more that 20 years, all the way back to her days working in her father’s luggage store. We at Thompson Alchemists are honored to carry a limited selection of his wonderful products, including the Spikes & Sparrow line, the extra large Zip Top Toes and a variety of wallets, passport sleeves and iPad cases!
Jack Georges stands behind the craftsmanship of his bags: each one comes with a warranty against defective parts or flaws. These bags are sure to please. Pick one up and you immediately sense the quality of both the leather and the craftsmanship. I’m certainly sold!

A while back the lovely people at La Bella Donna turned us on to the (wonderful) skincare line by Dr. Dennis Gross. Focused on preventing and reversing sun-damage, they also make the #1 selling at home peel, the Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel. There are a couple of things that set this peel apart from the rest of the pack. First of all, because it is meant for daily use it’s actually pretty gentle. It also focuses not just on peeling away the dull, dead, lackluster layers but also works to fight breakouts, calm redness and fights aging with antioxidants like Retinol, Ubiquinone, and Resveratrol.
I’ve been using it here in the store pretty regularly (although not daily…) and I’m solidly sold on it! I find it gives me better results than some of the 20-minute mask-style peels and it’s much gentler on my sensitive skin. Since I’ve been using it my smile lines have diminished and my pores are noticeably smaller. Hooray!
And my favorite part about this product is how easy it is to use. Just two steps! And the pads come pre-moistened and ready to use! Perfect for a lazybones like me!
