Doggibags celebrates 38 years of business in downtown Leesburg

Growth and development:Local businesses have hope for downtown Leesburg’s resurgence Downtown businesses:Retail store owners stay positive while rebuilding Doggibags is a two-part boutique, offering one-of-a-kind clothing and fashion accessories along with monogramming services.

“We didn’t plan to be in business,” she said. “She just drew this cute little dog, and I thought, ‘Let’s put that on a bag.’ It wasn’t something we planned — it just happened.” Ross soon realized that the business needed a permanent location, leading her to open a storefront in downtown Leesburg in 1983.

And that handbag, which helped give Ross her start and inspired the business’ name, is still on display in the shop. Ross got her start after creating a handbag, which featured a painting of a dog, with a friend. After the handmade purse started to gain the attention of others, Ross and her friend began hosting home parties to sell these custom-made items. 

“I decided if I didn’t buy one, I would be left behind,” Ross said. Today, she has four monogram machines to help her, each designed to create the quality embroidery that her customers have come to expect.  When Ross initially began practicing her monogram business out of her home in Fruitland Park, she created all of the embroidery using a free-hand method. As technology changed, she adapted her business to meet her customer’s needs, eventually purchasing a monogram machine.

“They say if you love what you do, you never work a day of your life,” Ross said. “I’ve never worked one day, because I do love what I do. It’s just a fun place to be. I have customers that I’ve had for 40 years.” Ross has offered monogramming services in Leesburg for over 60 years — gaining loyal customers along the way.
