One of the things I love most about living in this area is that I can walk into an antique store in Downtown Staunton at any given time and find something as beautiful as this vintage, hand- tooled, leather purse:
Look, it even opens up to this hidden treasure on the inside!
And it has the perfect length strap for sleek, ergonomic carrying ease.
And, all for $20!! Yes, $20!
Take that, New York City, where I bought the first of my collection for the ridiculous amount of $45.
If you haven’t heard, I have a bit of an obsession with these guys. I’ll try to do a blog showcase of the collection in its entirety sometime soon.
My friend, KB, knows about my unhealthy love for these purses and even though she saw this one first, and could have thus claimed it, according to my shopping by-laws, she let me have it. Thank you, KB, I owe ya one!
In my eyes it is a true work of art and of my most beautiful finds.
