Chestnut shorty

Love love love it! I need to order one for myself!! I purchase it for my MIL for her birthday and when I opened the box I thought I should keep it,lol. But I didn’t and she loved it!

Love it!

I absolutely love my shorty tote in chestnut. It is the perfect size for me to use for my everyday purse and it’s so beautiful. I have received so many nice compliments on this bag. I am a fan and I am sure this will not be my only Jill’s Homestead purchase!


This bag is gorgeous! It’s such a rich beautiful color! I was nervous to downsize from my Daisy bag but this is perfect! It fits my thirty-one zipper wallet, a small catchall, a bottle of my spray hand sanitizer, and there’s still room for more! I love the long strap for crossbody wear as well. Another home run for the JH team! Thank you! ❤️
