freddy&ma custom handbags

Freddy&ma is a very impressive site for making a custom handbag. I am no handbag guru, but these are really nice, and the price is pretty good too, considering the amount of work that has to go into each piece.

He told us what a good deal Smart Telecom was, and that they would connect the line for free and give us their free broadband deal. He told us that eircom would charge us 120 euros to get connected (which I suspect may have been a little bit of a fib). But there’s no doubt that Smart are offering a good deal.
