Garay, made in Hong Kong, Lumured – famous names from the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s. Classic as they come, and in wonderful condition. I’ll be keeping these for a while.
Never can have too many – especially in navy (not as many around as in black) and white (not as many in pristine condition). The woven wicker bags are sturdier and more abundant, but finding one that’s undamaged and has great Lucite trim is another plus. The vinyl interior is very plain, but is a great foundation for a beautiful cloth lining, which I’ll probably make and attach myself (pretty simple). Remnant pieces of vintage fabric or old scarves and hankies are perfect for the job!
I’m still working through the most recent finds, but I’m sure there will be more. Maybe tomorrow . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..
