I’m determined to stay in a Spring and Summer mood right now. Here’s a cute little bag that just lets me do that! Made in Italy!!
Hand-decorated with beads and constructed with the attached-coin-purse-feature that was common in many vintage bags; plus all the fashion fun that was built in.
And, you would not have been likely to run into anyone carrying the same handbag. If you carried it today, the chance might be one in a billion or less . . . . . . How’s that for a fashion statement!

TRUE VINTAGE 1950’S – EARLY 1960’S SUMMER HANDBAG FROM ITALY – Magicvintagespy
I love this bag & I believe I may have seen pictures of my grandmother (who was italian-born) wearing something similar, although I of course can’t locate the actual bag she wore in the pictures (so I let loose a string of italian-language swear words)
Have you searched every nook and cranny of the attic yet? . . . . . .
No, I saw pictures of my FATHER’s mother with a bag like this, which means that most likely one of my two aunts inherited it when she passed (they got all her wardrobe) and I don’t know the protocol for ummmm, pulling their dead mother’s things out from under them.
Well, sometimes if you chat about your interest in vintage clothing and how wonderful it is, etc., etc., – especially with people of that generation – they may offer things to you or at least invite you to see them . . . . .
I can only hope
Has worked for me!
