Change of Fortune


You don’t need a fortune teller to know that change is in your future.

That’s an easy call today.

But if you carried one of the cute new fortune cookie coin purses at Queens boutique, it would be true every day.

The super-supple half-moon shaped leather pouches were created when Queens owner Tiffany Tanaka (who also owns We Sell Things For You next door) collaborated with her friend Bliss Lau, the local girl turned New York handbag phenom.

Just big enough to hold a phone, lipstick and a few cards or cash, the zippered coin purses fold into the shape of a fortune cookie. They’re stamped with a Queens label, and come in brights and metallics. Use it as a teeny clutch when you’re out, or as a wallet inside your bigger purse.

And cross fingers today’s big change means a lot of extra coin for you.

The Bliss Lau/Tiffany Tanaka fortune cookie coin purse is $75 at Queens Hawai‘i, 839 Queen Street, Honolulu, 808.589.1005.
