About Us

Concept of BuildABagg

There’s just something magical about summer.  Whether it is a relaxing day at the beach or lake, weekend trips with the family, backyard barbecues, swimming or boating, with the warm weather and sunny days, we find many reasons to smile.  For us the beach is our second home.  For many years we have been taking weekend trips to the NJ shore and traveling back and forth from Florida.

We just love the beach. 

The beach is a time to relax and unwind.  But with all the gear you have to bring and especially if you have children, this can be a challenge. A good quality beach bag is a necessity. I have had several beach bags and every year I buy a new one because I am never happy with the one I have.

The problems I have had in the past is the fact that the bag plops on the sand, falls over and sand gets in the bag.  Now I love the beach and sand, but not in my bag with towels and food. I also hate when you are sitting too close to the water and that one big wave comes up and gets your stuff completely wet. Ugh! 

Well, we went to work on creating the ultimate beach bag.  It had to be big and durable – built to last.  Comfy, but stylish and trendy. Environmentally friendly and we wanted it to stand upright and not fall over in the sand.  And of course, WATERPROOF.

So, inspired with the bright, fun and flirty colors of summer, BuildABagg created a versatile, practical and trendy beach bag, known as the ‘SunBagg’ and ’BocaBagg’.  Both are great to use at the beach, pool, lake, boat or camping.  It also makes a great bag for hauling groceries home.  They are both multi-functional bags.

We took the concept of Build-A-Bear. So, at BuildABagg, it’s all about customization.  Each one of our customers are unique, so why shouldn’t your bag be as special as you?  It’s all about variety here.  You get to choose.  Transform your bag to fit your personality and style by combining your colors for the bag, handle and liner.  Add a tassel to make your bag unique and complete.

So, go have fun and BuildABagg!
