31 Corn Lane is the handbag company operated by four sisters from New Jersey. The name of their company is their childhood address and their childhood experiences greatly influence their design process. When I look at their website and pictures of the girls, like the one below, their energy just explodes off the page. They are living their dream making accessories and playing in a rock band- The Boxes- and having so much fun doing so that it's contagious.
I didn't find any info about the company on their webpage (maybe I overlooked it?), but here are two interviews about their business.
What advise would you give our readers who want to start their own companies or bands?
A giant pearl of wisdom that we have learned from starting our own company is: IF YOU MAKE IT, SOMEONE WILL BUY IT! And maybe even send you a nice e-mail about how much they like it and how they went to your grade school, even though they never once talked to you then! So don't be afraid or lazy fer another hot second cause time moves too fast and you've got goals to attain and choice items to sell, girl! It doesn't take much. Just start small, think in total baby steps and know in your giant heart that if you keep jamming it out you won't have to have a hovering boss over you each and every day!! [Source]
