For purse junkies already stocked with the It brands, Carousel Bags is spinning out a solution. The online shopping service, based just south of Muncie, is a gateway to hundreds of hard-to-find styles from indie designers around the world—and the brainchild of Hoosier Irene Martz. All the bags retail for $120 or more, but for a subscription of $29 per month, you can have a steady supply of clutches, satchels, and totes, all sophisticated in style and structure.
