I got Jean one of Jan's tote bags a year or so ago, and she loves it. She ... (ready for it?) ... totes it everywhere! LOL. If you have a wife who has stuff that she takes with her places, you should get her one of these tote bags. - Rob
Check out this awesome gift idea from local artist (and dear friend) Jan Marvin! I love her stuff!! - Angela
Thanks to Jan Marvin, Jean’s anniversary gift was a painting of where I'm taking her to dinner Friday night! (Savannah GA) Looking forward to a weekend of celebrating 20 years of crazy with this girl. - Rob
If you love unique gifts, you should check out Jan Marvin's Etsy store. She's got five different styles of tote bags. We've also bought some really cool throw pillows and prints from Jan. She's a wonderfully talented artist, and a great person.
I love my new Tote by my talented friend, Jan!! She has been very instrumental and encouraging in building my art presence in Charleston. She is such a blessing to me. Am so thankful. - Crystal
