The advertisement below is from a Seventeen magazine. Remember these?
With stamped designs in the leather, and then painted details on flowers or whatever - sort of like on this vintage wallet?I used to have a purse similar to the one in the ad - don't know whatever happened to it? But I found a picture of my sister with hers: (circa 1973!)
These stamped leather items, below, were all made by someone else and given to me back in the late 70's. I had one other, nicer, stamped "Heidi" key ring holder that I gave to my friend Heidi because I knew she would like it. I still love my little leather bracelet:
Tandy Leather is still in business. There's still a store location in Sacramento - and a number of others in California. And you can order the purse kits, online, too.
But they cost more than $8.95.
