My Etsy shop started when I found a purse online that I really wanted for myself, but it didn’t look exactly as I wanted and more importantly, I didn’t want to pay that much for it!

The original plan was to make a series of purses in purple with similar designs. But I get bored easily and this plan never materialized.

Where did your shop name come from??
My brother and I have talked a lot of nonsense over the years. "Banjoflannel" arose after trying to think of strange word combinations.
