About us

Purses made out of placemats?!?!? Don't know what creative mind to come up with that one but the tireless effort to perfect my version of Placemat Purses was the beginning of Basement Bags. It's amazing how we have grown and changed since opening in 2006! We frequently add new items, including some great quality 'ready made' things. Every monogram is still custom designed and individually stitched, when ordered, in our basement. We use the highest quality fabrics, ribbons, and other materials. We offer a wide variety of monogram and embroidery options to make your purchase truly 'one of a kind'. With the arrival of grandchildren came the addition of Basement Babies. We just can't get enough of the adorable baby stuff! New merchandise is added often as we strive to give you, our valued friends, more choices. Our work space is smoke free.

Basement Bags is a family endeavor. I am a full time teacher and contribute well over 30 years of sewing experience. I single-handedly process orders after school and on the weekends. My amazing husband is our web master and has taught me how to build and maintain our website. Our four daughters assist with design approval, marketing and 'profit sharing'. Our grandsons are often my inspiration and models. We really are a mom & pop business and much of our merchandise is made from 'scratch' here in the Basement. Hope you'll place an order and let me make something special for you. Thanks for dropping by! Susan
