A New Old Purse for ME!!!! {Vintage Thingies Thursday}


DSCN4608

Can you EVEN STAND IT? I totally can't! I am so excited about this little purchase! I mean, it was pretty expensive and all, but you know...when you just LOVE something....

Because I took the photos indoors, at night the color is a bit off, but it is a fabulous, striking turquoise color! LOVE!!!!

It is really in great shape, too. It has a small scratch on the back, but that just adds to the charm! Seriously...this is the cutest purse EVER! (At least for today.)

And now the cuteness is going to EAT YOU UP!!!! HA! Okay...so maybe that's just funny to me. Oh, well. BUT, this is the inside! Totally lined with a neat beige-ey kind of color that I love. It has a strap in there, too, but I think I like it better without the strap. It totally stays open like this because it has that sort of metally thingy in it that pops it open and then you just snap it shut. I hope some of you speak Jingle. Sometimes it's hard being me and trying to communicate with the rest of the world! LOL!

But, anyway, I am totally and completely head over heels in love with this fabulous new vintage handbag! Like, I said....a little pricey, but it just may be the best quarter I've ever spent!

Tee-hee....yup! You read that right! He wanted fifty cents for it, but I totally talked him down. I do so love a good yard sale now and then!!!!

Have a Happy Vintage Thingies Thursday!!!! For more simply awesome Vintage Thingy posts check out Colorado Lady!

  10. Don't ya love a bargain! I've gotten some awsome deals in the past - in fact just about everything I own is either from Goodwill, a garage sale, or a thrift store. Can't imagine buying anything at full price!

    Enjoy your purse!
