Over the last year, I’ve purchased a few items from Stoney Clover Lane and per usual, I wanted to use my little corner of the internet to share my thoughts on them.
For starters, I want to say that how expensive things are is always subjective. Everyone has a different income or money situation, and we all have different ranges on what we can spend for things.
Over the years, I’ve realized that I have major money issues in all types of ways, but it’s something I’ve been working on. But, I’ve also really tried to detach the cost of an item from how I feel about it.
Things that are high-end (I don’t like using the word expensive, because, it’s subjective) aren’t always better, and things that are cheap aren’t always bad.
So, let’s get into it with that understanding 🙂
What is Stoney Clover Lane?
Stoney Clover Lane is a company that customizes bags. They sell various colors, sizes, and shapes of bags, along with patches that they’ll apply so you get a custom bag.
Occasionally, they’ll do a collab that includes items aside from bags. It is a female-founded and owned company, with several brick-and-mortar locations around the country.
Items I’ve Purchased from Stoney Clover Lane
The first few things I bought were from a collab they did with Donni —a clothing company. I bought a matching terry loungewear set, along with a different color terry pullover.
I honestly didn’t even want to LOOK at the prices, because I just thought they were so cute. I bought them, they shipped right away, and were delivered quickly.
At first look, I was a little disappointed. Altogether, the items I got were $500+ and it was just sort of tossed in a bag. But, I do like the items themselves. I wear the set pretty frequently, and the pullover has a little pearl on the zipper and is completely something to wear out and about.
Was it worth the price? Assuming it was made in an ethical manner, yes. From the looks of it, the items were produced via Donni (the prices are similar to their standard pieces) and the colors were the input from SCL.
Next, I bought one of their classic fanny packs and customized it with a glitter heart patch. I really wanted this fanny pack for traveling, and I loved that it’s nylon for easy cleaning.
A lot of the SLC items are just solid colors, so customizing them is the way to go (in my opinion). I got the sapphire color (navy), and it has gold hardware.
You get to pick your patches and place them wherever, and they adhere them for you.
This took a few weeks, but arrived faster than they expected.
Honestly, I love this fanny pack! It’s so cute, goes with everything, and it definitely was worth the price ($120).
Beware that the patches cost extra (per patch) and there is a customizing fee.
Is Stoney Clover Lane Worth it?
Generally speaking, yes. I think so.
The items are cute, well-made, and if you get them customized, well, then you have a one-of-a-kind-bag.
But, there are a few things to note. First, I have noticed that some of their items have a prop 65 warning, which means it may contain chemicals that cause cancer. I have not purchased any of those items, nor would I.
Unless it’s a classic piece of theirs, you have to be ready to buy when an item launches, because it sells out — this is starting to annoy me about so many companies.
For the price, I personally wouldn’t be buying just random fun bags. I think these are more for pieces that you’ll use over and over for years… but that is just my personal thought based on my financial situation right now.
Having said all of that, if you’re reading this today — Saturday, 11/5 — they’re having their only sale of the year, when everything is 20% off. Maybe check it out and see what you think!
I’d love to know if you’ve purchased things from them and how you felt about it?
