If you have been a Disney gift shop within the last year, you may have noticed a new type of upper level purse found very close to the Disney Dooney & Bourke handbags. In what for years used to be JUST the D&B handbag section, there are now other purses options. A company called “Harveys” was recently given the opportunity to create original artwork for their Harveys for Disney Couture Good vs. Evil Princess Collection. The artwork for each bag was hand-sketched, painted with watercolors and then digitized.
Once you see them, you’ll want one, but can you afford it?
Harvey’s Company History
In 1997, husband & wife team Dana & Melanie Harvey were installing seat belts into their 1950 Buick. They had the the idea of making Melanie a matching handbag. Everyone loved her purse so much, they decided to make more available for purchase to the public. Starting out as a one-car garage operation, Seatbeltbag has since grown into 16,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Santa Ana, CA, where Seatbeltbags are hand-crafted using the finest materials made in America.
On the first Friday of every month, Seatbeltbag launches new styles, colors, and prints. They say they have a little something for everyone. In addition, they are constantly adding items back to their stock.
You can keep up-to-date with Seatbeltbag information by following owner & designer Dana Harvey on the SeatbeltBLOG.

The latest Disney Dooney & Bourke handbag, the Haunted Mansion style, was $399. Not all D& B purses are this pricey, but Harveys does give you a less expensive option. For those Disney pattern Vera Bradley fans, you’ll find these prices just about on par with those handbags, but the seatbelt material might be a bit more durable. For the D&B and V.B. fans who refuse to give up their favorite brand, you will have a great time window shopping!
Purses are sort of like ghosts in the Haunted Mansion…there alway seems to be room for one more!
