I have loved purses my whole life. When I was a little girl my mom would take me shopping with her and I always wanted to look at the purses. As I got older I realized I was a lot like my moms mom, my grandma Kell. Her name was Marilyn Rae Kell. She had a purse for every outfit and always matched from head to toe. When I was little my parents would find me in her closet always dressing up in her cute clothes and buried in her purses. My love for handbags and purses started when I was young I guess. My grandmother was a strong woman and I loved her so much. When I became a mom myself, I knew I wanted to be home to raise my kids and give to them as much as I could. I also wanted to show my kids with hard work and never giving up that you can make your dreams come true. My Grandma's nickname was Pinky. It was what everyone called her. In 2008 she passed away and I will never forget her and the courage and strength she had in her life. I was pregnant with my third child and not knowing what I was having, I could not share with her when I found out I was having a girl. I named my daughter after her. I wanted to keep her memory alive. In 2012 I started Pinkys Got Purses and wanted to honor my grandma and show my kids that having passion for something brings character and growth. I LOVE purses and my family and am blessed beyond measures to be able to do what I love and show my kids to be strong and never give up.
