white ... left to right, top to bottom ... 60s crochet purse: thrifted // another 60s crotched purse with 50s flower pin: both ebay (it's dirty, once it was white as well. i love to wear it going out at night, without taking care about a white bag ...) // h&m wicker purse: ebay // 50s faux leather purse: flea market (this is the most expensive one out of this little collection) // 50s-60s bead evening purse: thrifted (actually it's far too small for my needs....)
wicker and co. ... top to bottom ... 60s-70s bag: charity shop (haven't used it ... waiting for the summer to come) // my all time favourite round wicker purse: thrifted at oxfam years ago // 60s wicker purse: i recently found it on a flea market ...
colourful leather and petite point/gobeline ... left to right, top to bottom ... black 50s leather bag: ebay (what a steal) // 50s snake skin purse: hand me down from my granny // my fav petite points bag: flea market // brown vintage leather bag: flea market // red 50s purse with a golden bamboo handle: thrifted in the usa (it's far too small but it's so adorable) // tiny petite points purse: flea market // 70s blue leather shopping bag: can't remember ... probably i found it on a flea market a long time ago!
natural coloured wicker bags ... i have a soft spot for wicker and straw purses ... those are the more 'beautiful' ones i don't wear every day ... left to right, top to bottom ... early 60s crochet straw purse: ebay (it's pretty new to my collection. i can't wait to wear it) // also early 60s brown checkered bag: vintage yard sale // the bermuda souvenir bag: thrifted ( i found this one in the beginning of winter last year ... it's another piece waiting for summery outfits) // late 50s green and white wicker purse: vintage yard sale // 50s round red basket purse: vintage yard sale (it's so pretty but i have the feeling it's not ment for me ...) // 50s straw purse: ebay (sadly it's a little brittle. so it will probably end up on my vanity for storage) // 50s purse with 50s flower pins: mauerpark flea market two years ago (this is one of my absolute favs!!!)
last but not least ... my beloved western-riding-horse inspired straw bag from the 80s. i found it like most of my bags on a flea market. sadly i don't use it that much ... hopefully this summer it will come out with me a lot ....
this post was inspired by the six 'show and tell' posts lisa from butterflies and daisys vintage had dedicated to her amazing vintage purse collection some weeks ago. daphne from vixage started a 'show and tell' about her purses too.
most of my boring daily bags didn't made it in the post, because you see them any how ... some weren't bought when i took the pictures ... some others will have an appearience in future posts for sure ... to be true this is actually a small part of my bag mania sitting at home. my man starts crying when he catches me buying a new vintage bag on the flea market. hehehe, it's flea market day tomorrow. i'm ready to hunt some bags down ... heheheeeee.
what about your vintage bag collection, gals?
