Vintage Thingies Thursday


Thanks again to Suzanne for hosting this weekly feature. Make sure you check out the other cool vintage things on her blog Coloradolady.




I have some vintage handbags to share this week.



To the left is the one I am currently carrying. It is a very fine threaded tapestry. The strap is leather. Nice and roomy on the inside.










Did your mom or grandma carry one like the one on the right? My grandma had one like this and it is my favorite. When I carry this bag, I get a lot of comments.






The last one is a small bag. It is a funny shape and doesn't have a flat bottom so it is difficult to carry.


Can't wait to see what the other ladies have to share this week!

Those purses are just beautiful, still look terrific, and are still trendy for today!
You're a lucky ducky to have them.

Oh, I love them! I love vintage accessories. Use them with pride (and the knowledge that people like me are drooling over them).

A lovely collection of tapestry bags. My mother had one. These are well cared for; I see why you get such lovely comments.

Rosie said...

I remember my mother carrying one that looked just like the 2nd photo. They are very beautiful and now I wish I had my mothers.

Fabulous handbags. I love the colors!

farmlady said...

These purses are lovely. These days it seems like we need huge bags to carry everything and something got lost in the beauty of them.
Such nice workmanship. I wonder what they cost when they were new?

Great handbags. Such soft colors.

The 'old bags' are gorgeous! I especially like the black one with roses. I also love that you use them, rather than just collecting them.

Wow! Your purses are all a delight the eyes! I think I love the last one the best!
Enjoyed!
Blessings to you!

Lovely tapestry bags. I haven't
seen them for sale anywhere for
years. Wonderful VVT!

mannequin said...

Very pretty handbags. I like the old "train bags" that were done in tapestry also.

Terry & Dennis Macri said...

What beautiful handbags and how wonderful that you are not afraid to use them.

Patty said...

You have a terrific collection! I love all three of them. And, it's really great that you still use these. You're giving me ideas for next week's VTT.

Roslyn Atwood said...

Your handbags are classics-good for you to re-purpose them so lovingly.
