Our Hand-Whipped Rope handles offer a premium look and value to all three Beach Tote sizes. The brass accented, color matched key-fob is an available option.

Think gifts from Boathouse Bags for that sailor, boater, or even the landlubbers on your gift list. Here is twist on our bags:  Nautical hand-whipped cords from another Lake Minnetonka resource: RuggedWrist.

Our eco-friendly, unique totes, bags and accessories will add a chic regatta tone with a fun twist to your wardrobe. Created from recycled sails, materials and made in the USA. We are located near the shores of historic Lake Minnetonka in South-central Minnesota.

At Boathouse Bags we design and produce bags and accessories out of recycled sails and marine materials. We know we help keep a lot of hard-to-digest material out of landfills and burners by giving a retirement life to old sails.

We are no longer attending the Excelsior Farmers Market, but Brightwater is right there on Water Street, or check our link for more retailers…

We will be present at the Excelsior Farmers Market– Winter Edition!
It will at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, on November 29th, from 10am to 1pm. The “Arb” is a splendid place to visit any time of year, but this event will provide a great opportunity to get some holiday shopping done!
