Handbag Week! Day 5 (finally)

Our week of handbags continues, in chronological order. We lingered on the ’40s and ’50s this week, but today, our final day, the pace is back on track. Get ready for a whirlwind of purses bringing us up into the 2000s! Clicking on any image will bring up a somewhat larger view for detail study.

This wraps up our Handbag series, and I hope you’ve enjoyed it. I’ll be back on Monday with…something!

  1. I had a purse a day calendar a few years ago and I think the images were from the same collection! Some were just too cool… of course, others were so odd… to each their own.
