Why did you decide to open/start your own business?: I started making the sandwich bags for my kids and their lunches, and gave them out as gifts. I am a stay at home mom and was looking for work that I could either do from home, or was flexible while my kids are in school, and with a lot of encouragement from friends and family I jumped into selling & creating reusable items.
