Our Story

Purse Paradise & More is proudly family owned and operated. It is led by mother daughter duo – Janice and Lori. We are from the small rural town of Lakeview, Oregon. It’s so rural that some say it’s behind the sagebrush curtain.

We have always loved being in retail sales. This love started early for Lori - when she was in 5th grade, she made crafts and took them to school and sold to classmates. Unfortunately, this little business got shut down by the Principal because people were spending their lunch money instead of eating! Our first real business was named Country Love and we sold mostly by word of mouth and at the annual Holiday Fair.

Pursuing careers, raising families and eventually a move to Washington State meant that we didn’t get to create together for several years. We are back together in Oregon now and couldn’t be more excited to have this business together! We think a lot alike and appreciate each other’s talents and individual styles. We couldn’t make this venture a reality without our family members help and support.

Our business name Purse Paradise came from one of our customers that declared “This is a purse paradise!” when they were shopping our festival setup. We thought that name was very fitting and are using it for this new business venture. Our name has since transformed to Purse Paradise & More because we now have much more than just purses!

Selling online is new to us but we have had such great encouragement from our amazing customers, we knew our products needed to reach more people. We truly love our customers! We appreciate you stopping by our site and supporting our small business. We hope you find something here that you will love. If you have questions, comments or if we can help you in any way, please send us an email. 

XOXO - Did we mention we LOVE our customers!
