“I ran three miles today. Finally I said, “Lady take your purse.”

-Emo Phillips

It’s genetic!!  As girls, we’re always drawn to the closets and boxes of accessories when we hit the estate and yard sales.   Check out some of these fabulous vintage handbags we’ve picked up along the way.

Alligator skin purse (made in Cuba), floral Delill handbag, bird and flower needlepoint bag

basket purses

(top-bottom): beige Nine West, Talbots brown leather satchel , turquoise Nine West

(l-r): Saks Fifth Avenue black calfskin with brass trim, Dofan France brown leather, Sterling Black Lizard with gold-toned hardware

These last two purses are a little dressier, and would be great for either an elegant night out or to dress up a pair of jeans.

Hold on… Just got back from a small thrift store in Michigan and look what sister Kathy found.  Hopefully, she won’t realize I’ve hidden them in my suitcase!
