Vintage Thingies Thursday ~ Purses

The purse on the right was purchased (after much thought since there were quite a few luscious ones from which to choose!) about 2 years ago from a shop that used to be in Benicia, CA called Tableau. Technically it's new, yes, but it's made from vintage fabrics and trims and I love it. A good friend has it's twin and we wear them whenever we take our Girdle Gals Road Trip! The smaller purse on the left was found at a garage sale. It has a dingle ball hanging out of each crochet flower and a few more thrown in for fun where the strap meets the body. It's lined inside with a pink, satiny fabric and I really don't know how old it is. I've never used it (yet) because it's only about the size of my hand and well, if I only carried around an inventory of items that were the same size as my hand, I might. Huh, like that'll ever happen!

There's lots more vintage thingies to see over at Colorado Lady's blog this and every Thursday!
