Handbags

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with handbags. I’m still surprised by what I find even after collecting them for 25 years. I’ve owned vintage purses shaped like poodles, ones made from sterling silver, some crafted by prisoners and one that lit up when you opened it. But the ones I reach for when I’m running out the door are always big leather sacs…utilitarian yet stylish.
