I purchased the Camille bag back in December and it’s a beautiful bag! I love it! It’s the perfect size to hold what I need but small enough so it doesn’t get too heavy!! It’s very very well made and I love that it was made in Maine!! I always try to support our “local” businesses.

I have been going to Moosehead Lake for 40+ years traveling the Moosehead Trail when I saw this new beautiful building pop up. Out of curiosity I had to look it up and see what it was. As I was driving with my boyfriend I exclaimed “oh my goodness, it’s handmade bag company right in Newport!”. For Christmas under the tree was my first (not last) homemade bag from Maine. My boyfriend said you are part Mainer and need a handmade back from Maine. My clutch is cranberry color and I LOVE it! Great size for my phone, cards, keys and money. Thanks Janell! Welcome to Maine!

I visited their store last Fall and was so impressed with their work that I bought a most beautiful bag. It was just my size. Not too big nor too small. It is the loveliest shade of blue and carrying it is a joy. (not a bit of shoulder slipping). I have had countless comments on its style and beauty. Janell and her staff are accommodating and will gladly answer any questions you might have. The many colors and styles are awesome. The workmanship superb.

I purchased the Chelsea handbag in orange. It is a beautiful bag and the color is just right. Janell was very helpful and shipping was fast. The workmanship is excellent and I will be buying more bags for myself and gifts. Thanks to Janell and her group.

This is my 2nd purchase of Janell products. These bags are super high quality and they stand behind their workmanship and materials. I love to support local and small businesses and you can’t go wrong with Janell. They are very kind and helpful people. Thank you for a wonderful experience. ❤️

I bought the Hartford minimalist and I absolutely love it. Prior to this purchase, I exclusively purchased Dooney & Bourke. The Hartford is so lightweight and the size is perfect. I will be purchasing other bags from Janell.

Usually there is what I call a “learning curve” when carrying a new bag for the first time. With my Janell bag, the first outing was so easy! I didn’t have to figure out which pocket I had put things in, and it was an easy grab each time I reached for something. I love the style, the beauty, and the design!!

I just received my Peacock Brooklyn and Bristol and I am blown away. The leather is gorgeous and it smells like what you would expect from a quality leather handbag. The attention to detail is beautiful. I was not able to make it to the store but Janell went above and beyond to help me choose the perfect bag for my needs. Highly recommend if you are looking for high quality, USA made handbag from a business that is family owned. I will definitely be purchasing again for myself and gifts.

On the way to our friends camp we saw the store but it was late so it was closed. On our way home we called to see if it was opened because it was the 4th of July. They were not open but Janell said she would come and open the store for me as she lived close by. I of course felt bad but she said she didn’t mind at all. Super cute store and the quality of her bags is is incredible, and gorgeous!! Very happy with my Brooklyn bag and will definitely be getting more soon. Thanks for opening up for me!!
