+ Handbag Monday +
I confess: I love to find handbags on eBay and ETSY. They are a good value and quite unique.
I'd just had some really great news on the writing front and decided to celebrate. Only I don't celebrate over a drink. Oh no, I go straight to eBay and search through my favorite bag sites: needlepoint handbags, Margaret Smith handbag, Enid Collins.
On the Enid Collins listings, I saw this one:
I adore red (and pink. Lol) This one isn't from her jeweled collection. It was made after she sold the company to the Tandy Corporation. Inside, I found the horse logo which represents the work after she sold.
The bag is impeccable. No scratches, tears, stains. It is ready-set-go mode.
And then our eyes move to the tote handle. Smaller than the ones of today which do double duty as a shoulder handle.
And then our eyes move to the clasp. Gorgeous. Simply Gorgeous. It resembles to bean pods, with peas and a flower in the center. Not certain, but wonderful. In fact, this would make a good pin.
Now for the moment of truth. I'm a little embarrassed to admit the price for it is pricier than others. Maybe what I saved on them justifies the cost: $103.00
