Purselove.com was started in April, 2007 by Nancy, and her two teenage daughters. The business was started by Nancy due to the numerous, unsolicited, compliments she received daily from carrying beaded bags that started out as a gift from a friend. She purchased 40 more of these unique beaded purses and gave them to friends and family as gifts. While carrying their purses they received so many unsolicited compliments from strangers that many of them urged her to start a business selling these beautiful and artfully crafted beaded bags. Purselove was started as a cottage business with 120 of these lovely beaded bags. Purselove sold out in two months!
In July of 2007 Nancy and one of her daughters traveled to Asia to handpick Purselove's first large order of purses - Purselove was in full bloom! Since that first trip, Purselove has expanded into additional varieties of these unique beaded bags, leather bags, travel bags, purse organizers, passport carriers, bejweled belts, silk scarves, cashmere pashminas, jewelry, hair accessories, purse organizers, wallets, gloves, hats, glasses and more. Purselove has also expanded their markets in the world.
Nancy, with the assistance of her daughters, personally shops global world markets and bazaars for unique and one-of-kind merchandise - Europe, Asia, Mexico, Latin American, as well as markets in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.
Most Purselove products are sold locally at boutique events, style shows, private parties, trunk shows and charity events; however, Nancy also wholesales to boutiques in the United States. To be informed of local events please add your name to our customer list. You can shop online or call 419-283-4935 for an appointment to shop at my home in Maumee, Ohio.
80% of the purses are "one of a kind", meaning the purchaser will be the only holder of the lovely piece purchased. Due the volume of inventory, many items do not make it to the web. It is best to be on our mailing list to find out where Purselove.com is presenting each month.
In 2010 LUCKY Magazine, an international accessories magazine, selected a Pureslove purse for the Fall 2010 Handbag guide. It was presented in the Oct. 2010 issue as one of their favorite pouch style bags (see Item #054).
2012 brought PurseLove into designing custom vintage jute/burlap/cotton beach bags, wine sacks, gift bags, beer snap koozies, pillows and placemats for beach cities around Ohio and Michigan,as well as yacht and country clubs; working with a design firm in Florida and All USA made items. Custom designs have also been done for weddings and individual private events.
2014 PurseLove introduced a line of "snap" jewelry - changeable pendants, bracelets, key rings, earrings, headbands and purses. This line also hails from Florida and has been a big seller for us.
In 2013 and 2014 PurseLove expanded into clothing lines out of NYC. Our ever popular scarf vest is a sellout at every show. See link on homepage for a demo of the scarf vest. Fall/Winter lines include clothing from 5th Ave. NYC such as ponchos, wraps, leggins, sweaters, hats, gloves and more!
In 2015 we explored Greece and Turkey markets for textiles and leathers returning with beautiful merchandise.
2016 has taken us to Brazil where we found an artisan who hand makes beautiful leather cross body bags which will be sold during our Fall shows.
