Jenet Handbag Co. JenetHandbagCo was represented by A.J. Bows in June 1949.
This very interesting half page ad in "Handbags and Fashion Accessories" February 1950, page 22 illustrates the type of "Stable" a handbag manufacturer's representative would put together. Various price points, qualities and styles would allow buyers to select from the lines of a number of makers in one location. Competing lines were avoided and manufacturers could have easier access to buyers in Chicago without the expense of setting up thier own showroom in town.
