Once located in downtown Rensselaer, Indiana, the owners of the shop are enjoying their new country location. Though it’s away from the bustling downtown, it’s now only 2 miles South along Highway 231 and super easy to find. Just look for the red sign!

The long red building is so cute. It looks like it was made for holding this cute and clean shop.

Outside on nice days you’ll find plenty of stuff arranged around the front porch just begging to come home with you. Can you resist?

Here’s a little random tidbit about me: I don’t use purses. I was curious as to what this Indiana town shop could offer to someone like me. The answer? A lot!

Bags, Bangles, and Baskets has, well, bags and purses, trinkets of all kinds, and loads of baskets in every color of the rainbow.

The owner loves to make gift baskets. She fills them with all sorts of things from soaps to jewelry to country decor. They are creative and one of a kind. It’s a very personal gift.

My husband, Jeremy, was along for the ride that day when we browsed this wonderful country shop and even he found things he pointed to that were unique, interesting, or that would make great gifts.

There’s all sorts of bags in a variety of colors and styles, but there’s also jewelry, candles, baskets and so much more!
