A New Purse?

Yes, I picked up a 'new' purse the other day. I grabbed it as soon as I saw it. It's just so unique, I have never seen anything like it. I know no one else will have one like it.  The tag says Spencer and Rutherford in Australia. I paid $2 for it. I just love it and the fact that I won't see one on every other person's arm. I don't care to look like a carbon copy of the next person. 

I found one purse like this on etsy, the color of the front flap (light teal) and flowers (blue) is a little different. That one is over $46.
Here's the description 
"Vintage collectible Spencer & Rutherford faux snake skin and embroidery hippie boho shoulder bag"
It's in great condition, has inside & outside pockets, and the size is good. Sometimes I'll purchase an item and think that if I don't use it I can always take it to the consignment store. I am using this one!
I'll be donating the one with the ripped lining instead of repairing it. I like to change purses....they don't make me look fat *wink*. I wish the handles were longer, not a good fit for a shoulder bag, but I'll deal with it.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Remember this vintage furniture post? Guess what, it's sold....only in the store for 2 weeks. I really wonder who bought it. Hopefully I can stop in one morning and talk to the woman who is usually in the back where the furniture is and she can give me the scoop. I tried to convince the employees to start a lottery and sell squares for how long they'd have the set in the back. They didn't go for it tho. 
Happy Hump  Day!


  1. Oh my, vintage clothing is so much the rage here that my 52 year old son has even started shopping at vintage stores. Goodwill is my boutique.

  2. Linda, I think your new bag looks great. I have a hard time finding the right purse. I like shopping thrift stores too. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  3. Love this purse. Just throw in the one with rip to me! You did good girl! I love Goodwill. I only hit sale racks and Goodwill. Nothing else for me!

  4. I love the purse and the price:) I change purses a lot too! Have a really blessed day, BIG HUGS
