Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce

Meet Romeo and julietta BAGS

Romeo and julietta BAGS

Why did you start your business?
I had the pleasure of getting to live in Florence Italy for the summer a few years ago. As I walked through the marketplace I took in the smell of the leather and saw the array of fine, soft Italian leather handbags in all sizes, shapes and colors with the most amazing European styles. The thought that came to my mind, is how can I get these amazing one of a kind Italian Fashions to my family, friends, colleagues and others who appreciate carrying a quality European handbag. I wanted to import these Italian handbags, so everyone could experience what it was like to have an Italian leather handbag.

I am pleased to have created a company, Romeo & julietta BAGS. I am excited to offer for sale on this website amazing handmade Italian handbags, messenger bags, backpacks, briefcases, belts, small, medium and large handbags in various styles and colors. I also offer finely crafted Italian accessories, such as leather key chains, coin purses and wallets. I have also added more Italian accessories, such as Italian silk scarfs, shawls, men's silk ties etc. so check back often. 

How does your business give back to the community?
I have lived all my life in Westfield and have very strong ties thru several businesses that I have had through the years. I have always tried to be active with the Chamber and the town. I participate in various events and donate a European item for raffles and good causes throughout the year.

Why did you join the Chamber?
Living in Westfield, it is important to support other businesses that also operate in Westfield. We are all in this together and by supporting each other we support our community that we live in so that it thrives. I am pleased to be part of such a strong and supportive Chamber. I look forward to getting to know all the members old and new throughout the year.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I wear many hats!  Romeo and julietta BAGS is my passion but I also have other jobs. I have been in the mortgage finance field for over 30 years and it is my full-time job. I like helping people getting into their dream home or refinancing so they can afford the vacations they need or extras to make their life enjoyable. So, keep me in mind for financing needs. I have many years of experience and have opened and managed several branches throughout my career.

Do you have an offer for other Chamber Members?
I would like to offer ongoing a 30% DISCOUNT for any member or their staff who would like to purchase from Romeo and julietta BAGS. I want everyone to be able to experience fine Italian leather.
