Handbags in the City owner George Sakellaris decided this year to get rid of clothing and focus exclusively on his bread and butter: handbags and accessories. The result has been terrific. The longtime Harbor East boutique has a renewed focus. Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch and MCM bags are top sellers. Prada, Tom Ford and Gucci sunglasses bring an even higher-end feel to the store’s cadre of designers. Elizabeth and James and Marc Jacobs jewelry adds the missing edge to make this the most well-rounded accessories boutique.
