About

Granny Bean's Boutique

Home is my happy place. And being surrounded by pretty, fun and quirky things is part of what makes me happy. Granny Bean's Boutique was born out of my love for vintage. Why "Bean"? It's a childhood name that holds sentiment and nostalgia. I'm originally from Vermont, and my mother instilled in me a love of family, being thrifty and sewing. I loved the New England history, farmland and mountains but spent 33 years in Florida working in Human Resources.

When the time came for retirement, my husband and I became "half backs" when we moved to our favorite vacation spot in the beautiful North Carolina mountains. He worked for years turning our old summer vacation cottage into a beautiful year around home. I recently lost him, and there's a void in my life without him. But my son, daughter and her family, with that wonderful little grandson of mine are the most important people in my life, and together, with God's help, we'll get through.

I love hunting for treasures at yard sales, thrift stores, auctions or estate sales. My other passion is sewing and my mother taught me to sew when I was about 9 years old. I love to create handbags from funky fabrics or even from clothing that has beautiful fabric, buttons and trim. I've made over 40 memory bags for women from their husbands neckties.

If you'd like a memory handbag for yourself, custom orders are welcome. I can use a favorite fabric, shirt, jacket or neckties. Just let me know what you want and I'd be happy to work with you. Here's a five star tribute from a customer for whom I made a handbag from her husband's ties: "Wish I could give this seller hundreds of gold stars. Can not say enough wonderful things about my custom made necktie purse. Design and workmanship are impeccable! My dream purse!"

Please sit back and relax, while you wander through my shop. If you have any questions, please just let me know.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I'd love to make you a custom handbag. Just send me a convo about what you have in mind and I'll be happy to work with you - either with a specific fabric, neckties or a special item of clothing.

Regarding custom embroidery on Christmas stockings - sorry I am not able to personalize the Christmas stockings that I make. Once purchased, you may very well be able to find an embroidery shop in your home town or city to customize the stocking for you.

Care instructions

It is recommended that my hand crafted necktie purses be professionally dry cleaned.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I'm happy to gift wrap your purchased item for you. Just send me a convo and if I can, I'll offer this service at no additional charge. If I need to purchase a gift box, specialized wrapping paper or if higher shipping costs result due to a higher weight or a significantly larger box due to the wrapped package, I'll let you know what the additional fee will be.

Do I sell to countries other than the United States of America?

Yes I will sell to other countries. Please convo me if you are interested to purchase an item and live outside the USA.
