A Vintage Gem…

vintage clutch

Since I am a wonderful girlfriend, I offered to drop off the Boyfriend for his flight to New Orleans yesterday.

My favorite vintage shop is on the way home.

I love vintage shops and antique stores.  Finding pieces rich in history or just something I know no one else will have always makes the digging worth the while.

I’m picky (in regards to everything) so I feel it’s 95% crap, 5% gold.  But it’s a lot of digging that I normally don’t have the patience for.

I found this, very 40’s, La Regale gorgeous fold-over seed bead clutch in ivory.  It will be perfect for Easter brunch with my mom.

Reminds me of all the things I used to play with in my grandmothers closet when I was young.  My closet is going to be under lock and key when I have kids.
