This probably should be on one of my "vintage finds" Wednesday posts but I am so enamored it simply cannot wait and I do love it, so it qualifies as both! If it throws you into some confusing orbit, pretend it's Wednesday.
A vintage doctor's bag. I KNOW, isn't that exciting? What? This doesn't thrill you? It thrills me. I have wanted one to use as a purse for years, so when I spied this baby at an auction a few weeks ago, my heart skipped a beat. I'm old, that could be dangerous. The bidding started and I had butterflies because I had my price limit, but there were only two of us in the bidding and the other poor soul never stood a chance.
Inside were things I suppose you would expect to find in a doctor's bag - stethoscope and other wands and bandages of sorts. The only thing that seemed a bit odd was this...
A lovely Art Nouveu hand mirror - interesting right? I consider it a bonus.
Oh, THE BAG - sorry. You must be on the edge of your seat. No, well nevermind - here is my new "purse"...
I know this isn't everybody's cup of tea but it is mine. It is indeed. I like things just a bit different. I prefer to carry a purse no one else will be carrying. I feel fairly confident I'm safe with this beauty but you never know.
She might not win any beauty contests but I think she's got the prize for most original in the bag (seriously I couldn't resist that one).
Have you ever used anything unique as a purse?
