Accessory and Handbag StocksIncludes Eyewear and Travel Product Companies
List of Publicly Traded Accessory Companies Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges
Many of the accessory products created by these companies can be classified as luxury items as there are much cheaper alternatives to the items these companies design and distribute. However, for many consumers price is not an issue as they desire sleekly designed handbags, sunglasses, scarves, watches or travel products. The desire to have the hottest and most fashionable items has been part of human culture for thousands of years and is unlikely to change any time soon.
Like apparel and footwear companies, many of these companies both operate their own retail locations in addition to distributing their items through department stores and specialty stores. Naturally, they all have an online presence as well. Many of these companies have stores and distribution channels not only in North America but in Europe and Asia as well.
Naturally these are not the only companies that manufacture, design and sell accessories. Many apparel companies sell a wide range of accessories and these items are sold around the world at department and specialty stores.
