A few of my favorites. The blue velvet beauty, above, is the most gorgeous shade of fabulous royal blue. I think I found it at an antique faire. The "tweedy" looking bucket-style bag below was my mother-in-law's. I love it's uniqueness, that it is so stylish, and that it was hers.
And this beaded beauty is a particular favorite. It's completely reversible - flip it inside out, and it's just the beaded bag without the pink roses -but I love the pink roses!
And these last two- not vintage, but handmade from vintage bark cloth. I couldn't pass up this one with the covered wagon when I found it in Jamestown. It is small, easy to carry and throw a few things into.
And this one is from Ebay - just look at this lovely fabric with the bleeding hearts! It's quite large, and great for shopping trips!
Don't you just love vintage handbags? And doesn't "handbag" just have a nicer ring to it than "purse"? I think it does.
