I found this perfect little pleated vintage purse at an estate sale in New Jersey. Its always exciting and slightly peculiar to go inside the home of someone you never met, and have access to their bedrooms, their closets, and their drawers. I feel sad sometimes when entering these sacred rooms, but I draw upon the energy of knowing that whatever treasure I might find, I will honor in my design process. As I look around with permission…I feel I know the woman…her perfectly folded vintage handkerchiefs…her little vintage purses, sometimes with mirrors still inside. the magic of days gone by. My role as a seeker is to preserve the history that comes with each special piece and the energy of the woman who wore it.
This perfect condition little black pleated purse is aprox 8 x 10″ and has a long gold chain tucked inside. This purse was kept in pristine condition. I added pink velvet hand rolled flowers to the front, and layered in vintage velvet leaf trim.
Comes with a silk dustbag to store the purse for safe keeping or travel
Wear this one of a kind design for evening to any special event.
