From Stay-at-Home Mom to Entrepreneur
Hello, my name is Melinda Latham, and I am the founder of Sweet Purseonality. I am excited to have the opportunity to provide you with the best in pre-owned designer handbags such as Louis Vuitton, Dooney & Bourke, Brahmin, Coach, Kate Spade, and more! I want my customers to get to know me so let me tell you a little about myself.
In 1995, I graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelors degree in Marketing & Sales. I am proud to be an alumni of the infamous Mississippi State Bulldogs where Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys hails! After graduating, I started as a salesperson for a well known jewelry store chain and was promoted to manager. Eventually, I left that position to become a stay-at-home mom with a wonderful husband and four beautiful children.
You are probably wondering how I went from a stay-at-home mom to an entrepreneur. It started when I purchased my first Dooney and Bourke handbag from a consignment store. I was instantly hooked on the beautiful style and quality. I was accustomed to carrying inexpensive handbags but after owning my first D&B, flimsy knockoffs were history. I found myself regularly visiting that store looking for designer deals until I had a large collection of designer handbags. I realized this had become a passionate pursuit of finding designer handbags at a discount price. So I took my obsession to the next level by starting a business myself.
On this journey, I love to meet other women who share my love of designer handbags. I never thought I could afford such high quality luxury, but after discovering the world of pre-owned, I am determined to provide you with only 100% authentic designer handbags at up to 70% off retail prices. On the first Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of each month, we have a sale at the Best Western meeting room in Columbus, MS.

Thank you and your sweet purse lady is looking forward to seeing you Ladies there!
