Monroe's Access to Baggage is a result of pricey purse parties

Published on Thursday, March 8, 2012

Jessica Monroe had thought about diving into the small business world selling purses. Going to purse shows and trunk parties convinced Jessica to take the plunge in November 2008. The result is Access to Baggage, a boutique business at The Shoppes at the Grapevine on Trade Street.

The defining point for Jessica came at a purse party. "Most of the bags by this other purse party company were priced over $100. And I walked out of the party not buying anything because of the price point. I wanted to bring quality products to people at affordable prices," Jessica said.

Jessica has grown the company by participating in small vendor events, bazaars and festivals.

Through Facebook, her customers can order new merchandise as soon as it is available and followers are kept up-to-date on events like “Baggage Drop” giveaways. 

The Access to Baggage line includes vintage and handmade jewelry, women’s apparel, and the newest Handgun Conceal Carry Purses. 

Visit Access to Baggage at The Shoppes at the Grapevine open house at 211 Trade Street next Thursday from 5:30-8:30 p.m
