Champagne of Course!


The two words we never tired of hearing “Trunk Show” it was a thrill to see that our bags were so popular in the Fashion Capital City! We were invited back for many more trunk shows our bags were a huge hit outselling all the other trunk show brands at the time. Of course, we were always thrilled to come back to New York we loved the hustle and bustle of the city! Our days were spent talking about our bags to eager customers while at times our sales staff had a hard time keeping up with the sales and our evenings spent going to a Broadway show or eating at our favorite restaurant Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse. We started a tradition of celebrating a successful show with a glass of champagne! After several successful trunk shows, we were asked to do a week long trunk show and our bags would be featured in the window area which was the premier coveted spot for a vendor anyone passing by Bendel’s would see W. H. Petronela handbags! We were living our dream…of course more Champagne!!!
