I already posted this photo on Facebook with the query as to whether or not this recent find was a "keeper" and the unanimous response from all friends was "Yes!" I am not really a handbag person. I need my hands to be free! I tend to wear shoulder bags every day and I switch to back-pack style bags when I hit events like flea markets and such where I need to bend and dig and cannot be bothered with something hanging off my arm, or, worried about shoplifters. A handbag, then, for me, is not so practical. This one is SUCH a beauty though, big enough to hold lots of things but nice enough to take along on a special event. This bag has presence. Found for $4.99 I could make a tidy profit in a heartbeat on Etsy, but, I think this one will have to stay with me for now. It's a keeper.
