It's her corporate office/sewing room -- not to mention, her bedroom.
This is where 21-year old Jenna Lindemann creates handmade purses for her Shelburne company, Lindemann's. "When I make them I think about what I need, what I would want in my bag," Lindemann said.
Reporter Gina Bullard: There's tons of purses and bags in the world, what sets yours apart?
Jenna Lindemann: They're handmade, plus they're high quality fabrics -- fabrics that will last -- can be thrown around the car and don't show that much wear.
Lindemann started her business two years ago, a month after she graduated high school. She went full speed ahead with the business and decided not to go to college. "I'm not a lecture person. I don't like sitting in halls. I just go as I do," she said.
It's a decision she does not regret. "I've seen my bag walk around the malls and the first time I was like -- oh my god, that person is wearing me! It was so weird, but so awesome at the same time," she said.
And the bags aren't just at local malls -- they're international. Lindemann has fashion magazine British Vogue to thank for that. It's where over 1-million viewers find the hottest trends and must-have items monthly. Vogue emailed Lindemann wanting to feature one of her creations in the October issue.
"I thought, this is a scam, this isn't real," Lindemann said.
But it was.
Reporter Gina Bullard: How did British Vogue find out about a girl in Shelburne, Vermont?
Jenna Lindemann: I put my bags on a website in California and they were scouring the Internet and found it.
Lindemann said sales are growing steadily since the magazine hit store shelves. She sells about five bags a week, now sending her creations all over Europe, Asia -- even to countries like Kazakhstan. Purses range in price from $35 to $150
And since she's already checked being featured in a major fashion magazine off her bucket list, Lindemann hopes the next step is opening up her own store.
