|My collection of purses displayed on my bedroom wall.|
Vintage petit point and beaded purses can be quite pricey, some as much as a thousand dollars. The more stitches per square inch the higher the price. Also, the age and condition matter.
But every now and then a purse comes along that just tugs at my heartstrings and is within my price range. I will immediately purchase it (or bid on it) to add to my collection.
My very first petite boutique purse was this wonderful painted black and white metal mesh bag. I inherited it from my Nana. She carried it in the 1920's and gave it to me many decades later when I showed interest in it.
I have yet to do the research on the history of any of these bags and their makers but hope to take some time to do that soon.
Meanwhile, I will keep an eye out for some more wonderful purses. I would love a vintage beaded bag, but they seem to be even more expensive than the petit point. I know if I continue my search, I'll find the perfect one, eventually.
