Den and I went to an estate sale. They were crazy busy. Note to self-if we ever need to have an estate sale, do it in the dead of winter. There is nothing to do here in the winter so everyone that was out and about stopped by. Honestly, people couldn't walk in the house. Everyone had to wait to take a few steps.
Anyways, I saw this purse. It was an antique and I thought it was unique. I told Den that I liked it but I wasn't paying $25 for an old purse that had a couple of small holes in. We left without the purse.
The next day, I said to Den that I sort of wished I had gotten the purse. I received the "I told you to get it" stare. Later in the day, we were out running some errands and were near the estate sale. Den said that we should stop by and see if they still had the purse. At that point, I had a headache and didn't care anymore. He was a dear and went in and bought it for me for $15. He also had to walk out the door carrying the purse. I swear I heard people laughing. I'm sure they were just laughing because his purse didn't match his shoes. The man that sold it to him said he was going to post his picture to Facebook. Den smiled and left quickly. He is good to me.
I love it but it smells so musty. I just wish that I knew when it was from. I did a search but didn't find a site that would date it. I did find a site that sells vintage purse though, Vintage in Style. It is a really interesting site and I thought that the prices were fair, almost cheap. Well, cheap if you compare it to Coach not a garage sale find. And I like the fact that the vintage purses have more style than your average purse and if you could find any info on it, it would be an interesting conversation starter. I'm sure that Den would love to hear the history on his purse.
Off to find Den matching shoes,
