a great find

i found this beauty at an antique mall with my sister. it screamed at me from the shelf. "you're not really buying that, are you?", she asked. she's just jealous because she didn't see it first. of course i needed it to carry my knitting on wednesdays. my friend h told me that these bags are sought after and would fetch ever so much more than i paid for it. woo-hoo! i like it even better!

Yes, I have seen these purses go for big money! I forgot the name of them, but you should find out and look on Ebay just for fun!

I think it is perfect for carrying knitting!

They're valuable? I guess I'm not surprised - very vintage. If only I'd kept all the ones my mom and grandmother used to use. Of course at the time I thought they were rather "old lady-ish" - but now that I'm a bit old myself, I remember them fondly.
