Mint Handbags were introduced in 2004 by Colorado based designer Holly Poledicha. The bags are designed for people that want to express their own inspired uniqueness. Mint Handbags' distinct, appealing fabrics and styles are as contemporary and fun as the people that carry them. The name "Mint" comes from putting a penny in every "Mint Bag." It is proper etiquette to place money in a wallet or purse that you give as a gift. The money is a gesture of luck and prosperity, and since every Mint Handbag has a penny sewn in the lining, you will never be caught penniless. Our bags are named after people who have appeared on American Currency. The "Salmon Chase" $10,000 bill is so unique and rare that we named our very own notable "Chase Bag" after it. You will also find Washington, Lincoln, Grant and many more in our line of distinct bags that assure creative allure and style.
