Kelly VanVoltenburg, proprietor of Banana Showcase located in Duncanville, Texas offers lively floral prints and repeating patters in her cloth items. Handbags, Kleenex holders, and Keychains are her specialty. Some of the fabrics she uses are vintage and others current. All items are made in a pet-free and smoke-free environment.

You can tell by her descriptions that the bags she makes are built to last. Many have multiple layers and are triple-stitched. And if that's not enoough to convince you to snap one up, her prices are fabulous!
