Form and Function

I love this bag! I have had the Cupcake bag for years and use it daily. It’s the perfect sized bag for running errands and taking essentials to the gym. The quality and longevity of my Cupcke bag got me to order the Busy Bee bag. Sometimes, the Cupcake is just a little too small to hold what I need. My Busy Bee bag is beautiful, the fabric is strong and durable, and I love the zippers. The are easy to slide and I know will hold up for a very long time. The craftsmnship is stellar. This size is still a small bag (which I love) but but big enough to carry what I need for any occasion. I have gotten so many compliments on my Cupcake bag over the years, I’m sure I will get them for the Busy Bee bag as well (I’ve only been using it for a few weeks so far).

Thank you so much for your kind words and for your support!


This small bag is exactly what I was hoping it would be. Beautiful classy black fabric, structurally sound and perfectly sized for the function I’m attending. Phone, glasses, lipstick, keys. My 3rd Maruca. They wear like iron.

way too small

I bought this to use on day trips when I didn't want to use a full-sized purse but it is way to small for holding "just the basics"

Perfect Size

The Busy Bee is my third Maruca bag. I love the black and gray colours which I find go with pretty well everything I wear. But best of all is the size. It has room for everything I need to take with me yet is small enough that I can wear it for long periods of time without it feeling heavy. The small Maruca crossbody bags have saved my shoulders. They are also very well made.

So happy to hear that Angie! Thanks for sharing your wonderful words and the picture! Enjoy your new Busy Bee!
