@VickiBatman ~#handbag Monday: #vintage Margaret Smith for Easter


~#handbag Monday~
Hi! Vicki here on #handbag Monday instead of a guest from the past few weeks.
You know I am a big fan of vintage Margaret Smith handbags. This beauty showed on eBay a few weeks ago and yep, had to have it.  

Isn't the color gorgeous? And I love the flap with the closure and the different matching handles. In fact, I wanted to carry it to a wedding reception; however, I decided the dress was too formal and went with another selection. Then Easter rolled around and I thought perfect, but no. Easter plans changed too. Sigh.
Here's the biggest surprise: the bag was less than $20.00.
What's the lowest price you've paid for a bag (free doesn't count)?
Poinsettia handbag: Week 8
I took a week off from needlepoint when traveling and caught up with another love: reading. Back to work and here's what's up with the Poinsettia handbag.

You will notice on the side panel, I'm still filling in black. I had to use a different dye lot and the color is a bit different. I am pretty sure I am the only one who notices and when the bag is fabricated, no will notice at all.

I do love the color. I saw a Vera Wang store at the mall with all the handbags and thought of you!

Hi, Melissa! I like the color too and I have the perfect dress for it, but I'm not finding the perfect occasion for it. I think I need to look at the Vera Wang windows!!!

Sylvia said...

Love the color and the bag. You purchased that on ebay for less than $20? Wow! You are the handbag queen.

Hi, Sylvia! I did. I think more like $13.00.

Angela Adams said...

That's the perfect Spring handbag!

Hi, Angela! I thought so. I'll have to just carry it everyday since I can't seem to find the perfect occasion for it. Hugs.
