Reporting Jessica Kartalija
ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WJZ)—A popular designer from right here in Maryland makes her CBS debut on “The Price is Right.”
Jessica Kartalija reports her designs are priced for women on a budget, and the game show was a perfect fit.
She’s invited to come on down. An Ellicott City native and handbag designer makes her debut on the hit CBS show, “The Price is Right.”
“I grew up watching ‘The Price is Right,’ and then it was a dreamlike setting to be on the set with Drew Carey and all the audience members. You were on the edge of your seat with the energy,” said Danielle DiFerdinando.
In 2008, DiFerdinando started Danielle Nicole handbags–designer bags with a more affordable price tag.
“It really reached a huge audience being on ‘The Price is Right’ and having all different designs,” she said. “It was a great opportunity to reach 4 to 5 million viewers.”
On Tuesday’s episode of the show, the winner of the tic-tac-toe game won 52 handbags personally chosen by DiFerdinando.
“This was so special to see her so happy and so emotional, and I am so grateful that I could make a difference in someone’s life,” the designer said.
Still expanding her brand, at just 25 years old, DiFerdinando has a bright future ahead.
“Being from Baltimore, I’m so pro-Baltimore. Anything I can do to help, I’m always giving back because that’s what it’s really about,” she said.
Danielle Nicole bags are sold at Sassanova in Bethesda.
