collecting Antique and Vintage #purses

How I started collecting Antique and Vintage purses -On Serendipity ! | Notes From the Lane
I am a collector of purses, of mostly mesh and micro-beaded styles from the 1920’s – 1930’s. It’s a funny thing how this came about. You see, I held onto two purses from my childhood and teen years – one, a basket purse that I needlepointed my initials onto a small sampler of sorts (c. 1965); the other, a pair of Levi’s I fashioned into a messenger type bag (c.1975). I just loved them both – then, and now! Serendipity, of course, that they would become the foundation of my collection!
