We have over 80 different artists’ work at The Burlap Bag. So many unique handmade items! One of everyone’s favorite items are those made by the artist “Uncommon”. They make awesome laser-engraved items out of birch! We currently have their coasters, clocks, hair pins, and rings. The hair pins are definitely a huge hit….

Vincent and Jessie Leman, designing together and married for 6 years
Valparaiso, Indiana (a cozy town close to Chicago and Lake Michigan beaches)
No kids or pets yet, but we’d love to have both some day.
We have the same birthday! It’s always an extraordinary day.
We both love integrating the precision of digital tools with wood. When we need a break from all that precision and technology, Vince likes to sketch with pen and ink and I like to sew or crochet stuff for our home.
-Were you creative growing up/what did you enjoy doing?
We were both super creative kids… we’ve got lots of amusing grade school art class projects that can attest to that!
We love sushi, fresh garden veggies, a good grass fed beef burger, and have a joint inexplicable weakness for cocoa krispies.
Arrested Development, 30 Rock, White Collar, Project Runway, Castle
Iron & Wine, Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Neko Case, Josh Ritter
-Is there anything you’d like to try your hand at doing?
We’d love to open a brick and mortar shop some day… selling choice handmade goods.
I’m a huge fan of Charley Harper. We are both in love with Charles and Ray Eames’ work. We are always inspired by other couples who work together.
-One year from now….
We’d love to own a home and be renovating that, with veggies and flowers in the garden.
