May I introduce my new baby!
I have many bags, handbags, purses, totes, clutchs and shoppers. Mostly all Vintage pieces but not all.
This addiction went into overdrive when I launched my online vintage clothing site Sara's Attic in 2002, each time I bought a bag for the site, I decided to keep it . They began to mount up.
I don't know how many I have, perhaps this wee project will 'out' me!
After we moved home 14 months ago most of i
them have been rehoused in clean, dry plastic boxes and are stored under the bed, in the wardrobe and five are displayed out on a shelf, gathering deadly dust and for a handbag it can be deadly, so I only display my Lucite pieces (plastic to you and I) on the book shelves.
They all used to be displayed inside three old 1940-50's glass fronted china cabinets in my bedroom, next to my desk and I could admire and rearrange them to my hearts content, but now I no can do. Out went the old cabinets in came the storage containers.
So I thought how can I continue to enjoy these, we don't have the room to display them, I will not sell them, so I decided I would blog them! No surprise there then! And this way I can share them with all the other handbag lovers or bag freaks, as Larry calls us on a polite day, mentalists on a not so polite day and I couldn't type what he says on a in a fit of pique day!
Anyhow just posting here so that this may be seen by some other handbag anorak who would like to slather and drool over my handbags.
Do drop by and tell anyone you know
who indulges themselves regularly in this torrid, sensuous, comforting, addictive habit!
