Why:
Founder, Amy Slinker, saw a need for WILCO LIFE while serving in the Army National Guard.  As a servicewoman who was on an endless pursuit finding bags and accessories that will comply – or WILCO - with military regulations. She started compiling findings and posted via blog throughout the years, as many friends would tell her they could not find plain black bags to carry in uniform either.

With the establishment of WILCO LIFE, women and men who serve finally have the convenience of finding bags and accessories all in one place.

TESStimony:
Although I am not from a military background, I was so smitten when I came across WILCO LIFE.  As a proud and constant supporter of our economy (aka an avid shopper) and major traveler, the Mighty Purse I purchased has saved me time and time again with its internal phone charger - plus it's super chic, minimal, and timeless style goes with everything. 
The inventory Amy has curated is incredibly appealing and displayed in a super streamlined way with a cool aesthetic.  
I love that I am not only supporting an amazing female Entrepreneur who does so much in our community as an individual but also has a great heart for her fellow servicemen, women, and their families, featuring multiple brands that are veteran owned and operated, obtain b corp status, and give back to vets and our world with their mission statements and resources. 
I highly encourage supporting WILCO LIFE next time you are in the market for a handbag, travel bag, gift for yourself or those you treasure.
I love WILCO LIFE so much I was honored to be approached by Amy personally to be an Ambassador for the brand, helping out with some consulting, marketing, event planning, product selection, as well as brand awareness! 
I absolutely believe you will find what you are looking for (including vegan leather options) and feel good about your purchase from WILCO LIFE!

TESStimony:
I have had great experiences as a Consigner with Consign 49 - the timing of the events (winter + spring) works out well for cleaning out my closet, the consignor rates are exceptional, and the payment turnaround is awesome.  Signing up and entering inventory of items I am consigning is super user-friendly and I love that I can log-in and check on what has/hasn't sold during the event.  I also love that I can decide which items I would like to have donated if they don't sell.  I highly recommend consigning with Consign 49 as well as checking out the event to shop!  It's eco-friendly and fun!
