Giving others a Brighter Day.

Brighter Day began as a creative outlet while Whitney was in nursing school, and has grown to so much more. We spend our days at home in Franklin, Tennessee, hunting for quality fabrics (both online and in local shops), interacting with customers, making friends with our local post office employees, and sewing. And sewing and sewing. Whitney is in charge of the design and most of the sewing, while Shawn works on photography, marketing, and even some sewing himself! Our baby boy, Liam, is an expert at pulling the fabric off shelves. :)

It's a joy to be able to work from home to provide a quality product that brides and others will enjoy for years to come. We see our purses as more than just a product. They are beautiful, personalized, handmade keepsakes that are made to last for years to come.

Also, it's our privilege to support a cause we really believe in. 10% of the proceeds that come from sales will go to the International Justice Mission, which works to secure justice for victims of modern-day slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. To learn more, visit their website: It is my hope that through this little shop, women around the world may experience a "brighter day."
