Vintage Tooled Leather Handbags

I have a new obsession!

 
Tooled handbags!  Do you remember these?  I was born in the wrong generation.  I love all the 60-70's style.  Look at this one:



I love the mushroom design!  These things are so cool! I was at a thrift store this week.  When am I not?  I am in and out of them all week long!  Guess what I found:



Not as nice as the ones above, but after some TLC they will be great for the motorcycle, with jeans.....anything!  They stitching is in perfect shape!  I love them.  I can strap it across my chest and not have to worry about setting it down anywear, specially when I am having drinks on the water. 

I did manage to find a nice flowered tooled leather bag online!!  I cannot wait for it to come!!  

Have a great weekend!!

  1. They are absolutely magical! I love the mushroom one especially, what brilliant finds.
    I think I have the twin of one of yours:http://vintagevixon.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/boot-sale-buys-charity-shop-chat.html. What's the chances of that happening? x
