Vintage Purse Collection!

I think it is so interesting to see what people collect.  I have a very severe affection for little beaded purses.  The are all so small...intricately made...delicate...and beautiful! In my upstairs hallway I just have them randomly all over this wall by the potty.

Here are a few close photos of some of my favorites!

Love the leather work on this one...

and the bead work on this is stunning.

Now, we get to the colorful beaded ones!

I so love these bags, but often reflect on what would they put in these purses.  I myself, carry a billfold larger than any of these, glasses, sunglasses, notepad, planner, phone, make-up bag, and occasionally a magazine or two, meds box and my IPAD.  The pure weight of my stuff would send these beads flying.  

To be this delicate and prim, the overhaul is going to have to start waaaaay back in different areas. Weening me from my stuff will only make me purchase a cute purse for decorative purses only.  Or...I should start collecting feed sacks......hmmmm?

What a great collection you have. I think you could put a debit card and one key in them :)

Very nice collection. I started collecting these when I first purchased one to carry at my daughter's wedding. We were in an antique store and both loved the little gray, beaded bag. I also am always on the lookout for small, leather coin purses at thrift stores and estate sales.
