Those Vintage Clutches, Handbags, and Purses

Here is a vintage item that I've been fond of for years and one of which I do collect and one of which my niece refers to as my "pretties" collection, lol.  Vintage clutches, handbags, and purses.  Yes, you can have Coco, Coach, Prada, or Louis, but to have a wonderful vintage beaded evening clutch is something else.  Unlike the purses mentioned above, these can be found with very affordable prices and in such a vast array of designs, styles, and materials which can suit most any budget or flavor.


 From the elegant beaded evening purses


to the super cool stylings of a designer Theodore of Hollywood patent leather evening clutch


 

or the exotic beaded and sequined cocktail clutch by La Regale



it's the craftsmanship and quality in these accessories that have endured the test of time.


No two bags are alike. You can have your choice of colors, materials, and fabrics. Perhaps a glittery gold bag is of to your liking?


A nice vintage clutch, handbag, or purse is sure to draw attention and will provide a cause for conversation. So next time your out and about browsing your local thrift store, garage sale, or estate sale, keep an eye out for these accessories that are normally passed over as the one you see may be the one that starts your collection!!





HAPPY PURSE SNATCHING!
