bag 8 – taken

Vintage is a relative term. In the library world, historical means at least 25 years ago. Today’s bag is certainly historical and definitely vintage. It’s a no-name bag ok someone who knows told me it’s likely Brooks Brothers, based on the pattern. I thought the pattern was elephants, but she says it’s a sheep suspended by a ribbon. Ok, is see that now. I got it at Goodwill for $6 years ago and it’s a collectible piece of art vs. a bag I would carry. It reminds me of the structured bags my mom and grandmothers had back in their day.

Fabric and pleather with feet, an adjustable strap converts a shoulder bag to a handbag. Gold hardware includes a gold ball zipper pull. The zipper moves smoothly which surprised me for a bag of this age. Best of all is the coin purse attached to a chain that has it’s own pocket in the bag,

If vintage is your thing and you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 8, your name, and your address. First come first served. Peace!
