Why did you move to New York?
I lived in New York most of the 90-ies. When I met my husband I moved back to Sweden for 10 years. We moved back with our three children 2011. The reason: because I love New York! It fits my personality perfectly. I can be creative and be myself 100% in New York
Mention 3 of your favourite places in New York?
1. The Nolita area east of Soho. This is where I have my shop. I particularly like Mulberry Street, Mott Street and Elizabeth Street between Prince and Houston. Full with little independent shops like mine and great restaurants.
2. Central Park any time of year!
3. Hudson River park. A park that runs along the Hudson river on the West side of Manhattan. You can walk, ride your bike or run.
What do you love to do in New York in your free time?
Walk all over. We don’t own a car. There is always something amazing to look at!
Mention something weird that you’ve experienced in New York
Freaky weather. Sometimes it rains so much you would think someone was throwing buckets of water off the tops of the buildings. I have never seen anything like it anywhere else.
What do you like best about New York?
The people. Most people are just so friendly and happy!

The book ”I had a dream (but no idea)” is a book about how Bag-all came about. It is written by the owner and founder of Bag-all, Jennifer Jansch. It starts with her dream of having her own business, but not having any idea of what that might be. It leads us through the challenging times, the fun times, the obstacle people, the successes, up until today. Bag-all has come a long way from Jennifers living room to having her bags sold in over 25 countries world wide, a flagship store in Nolita, New York and owning her own printing factory in Brooklyn.
Jennifer believes we are all capable of fulfilling our dreams and goals. In this book you find out how.
The book comes in a super cute cotton bag with grosgrain closing and a handle with the text: ”Bag of dreams”.
