“I get stopped all the time when I wear this bag! I get so many compliments! And of course, it holds everything! It’s even more gorgeous in person!!! I just love it it’s so much fun... and I do feel a bit like a rebel when I wear it❤️”
“My very first Rebellion bag was a black sheared beaver wristlet that I purchased at the Baltimore Craft Show... the first time I met Stephanie and fell in love with her and her product. I used it for years and continued to add to my collections. To this day, about 6 years later, it's still my favorite. Like an old friend.” from her IG @bdplaid67
“ We’re fabulous down here in the dirty south, Alabama rocking Stephanie Wheat Baby!!”
“...love my bags! Hot here in Las Vegas... proud to be a Rebel and wear both a mask & my Rebellion bags
“This bag is stunning. Amazing quality and craftsmanship. Plus handmade in Chicago! The owner Stephanie and her staff member Isabella are so wonderful too. I needed a shorter length strap (I'm 5-feet in height) and that was easily accommodated. Each bag is really one of a kind since they are each made by hand. I just discovered the Rebellion line of handbags this year and have already bought so many. They make great gifts also, especially the wristlets. I'll be back for more! XO, Mary”
