Every once in a while I find a special vintage bag tucked inside someone closet. This time, it was in my step great-grandmothers closet. fullsizeoutput_42e4

A beautifully dressed woman, I have found some truly stunning pieces in her perfectly well kept closet.

This little wedding purse is made in a pleather with beautiful embroidery all the way around front and back.

Beautiful vintage condition.

When you are shopping at estate sales, always check for smells, stains, and look especially close at corners, handles and the interior. Other than expected “wear”, some things can be fixed and some things are permanent. Strong smells are hard to remove. If purses were well kept, wrapped in tissue or plastic and nicely stored, they usually don’t have strong odors. Be careful of mildew smells and the like as those are hard to remove.

This bag and all of my purses are shipped with pretty fabric or silk dust bags for storage and safe keeping. This is very well kept and in overall excellent vintage condition.
