Can you share with us a bit about your business and how you got started?
“I started my one woman business a few years ago. In the beginning I made only bags but then expanded to jewelry and other accessories over the years. All designs are my own. I have ready made products and do a lot of custom work as well. I started with doing Home Parties and now sell online, in some local stores, and at fun events like this one!”
