I'm just an old Bag

a bag lady that is, and I bet the kids call me more than  an old bag at times too.
Look what I found today...
 3 Leather bags  and one cane bag yay.
 Great ones dont you think?All $2 each the one on the right still has the leather tag inside made in America
I do have a thing for these 70s cane style ones.And yes I use them

Here is most of my collection I have beaded bags,sparkley bags,tapestry bags,fabric bags and glomesh bags.

black bags,white bags,brown bags shoulder bags,handbags  all sorts of bag bags.

If you want to see a close up of anything let me know.

See I told you I was a bag lady
Oops Too late. I am over here.

Squashed by the bags.

Bye now

Vintage Coconut said...

MY LORD NELLY! I need to show my man this so he will not tell me I have too many bags every now and then. LOL
Your pics are so fun! I love the one of you on the ground with the bags attacking you. I imagine it would be the same result had a purse shelf fell over in a department store.
You have so many gorgeous bags my goodness you must really luck out when your out at the thrifts!

I am so glad that I am not the only one that has a BAD BAD purse addiction. I need therapy I think because of all the purses I have.
Wanna have a purse swap?
I bought a purse at a garage sale at a victorian home that the family was selling for around a million dollars and all the stuff they had was very high quality,high priced items that they were selling for dirt cheap. I bought a purse from her for $20.00 (which I would never do at a garage sale but I loved it so much) the owner of it said it was a $350.00 purse. when we got home i looked it up from the designers name and sure enough, not one thing was under $300.00 from the maker.
