My niece loves to carry her mini bag everywhere she goes. She keeps chap stick, a few toys, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, lotion and a few other items in her bag. She’s always asking me when I’m going to make her another one. LOL

My niece loves bags just as much as her maw maw and I do. Our love for bags is almost as bad as our love for shoes. LOL When she asks for a new bag I can’t help but oblige. I mean she’s my little girl and she’s so stink-in cute!
