Vintage bag

As you all know I am a bit bag crazy ....always have been and I started to buy vintage evening bags when I was a teenager (they were called secondhand then 😂) from antique fairs (they were called jumble sales then 😂). Anyway I didn’t have much money so my market was limited but I always bought bags I liked and never bought for some high flying notion of investment potential...... I don’t think that was a thing then when I was growing up (The Antiques Roadshow was for posh people who lived down south) ....nobody saved furniture and bric a brac from a deceased loved ones house clearance, it all just went on “the back of the fire” or on the bonfire if it was the right time of year ......people didn’t have the space in their own homes!!! This idea of finding hidden gems in the attic was ludicrous, the loft was for suitcases and old photo albums/biscuit tins. Bloody loads of Quality Street tins but definitely no Renoirs or Constables. I have framed and mounted some of my bags and they hang on the wall in my lounge, I love them. When I bought the first old evening bags some 40 plus years ago I never thought I would have my own bag shop....life is funny and takes you in directions you never thought of.
