Let me say this purse is amazing! It looks even better than in the pics: it's really beautiful and you can immediately tell it's been made with love. Perfect for the beach and for my upcoming vacation to Jamaica. Thumbs up!! - Rosanna

This beautiful master piece is just awesome. It has enough room to hold my wallet, glasses, keys and cell. I got it to take to the beach and carry my basic stuff but I just love it and I use it every day. It is light and it is made of canvas (I love this material)
The painting is just beautiful and I recommend this product. - Olivia

So fun! Great stuff, Jan! Was just thinking your work will look great in my future vacation rental property! - Sherry

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.
