For my Junk Love today, I’d like to return to my love of handbags. I would say that handbags are my one real obsession. It’s honestly difficult for me to pass up buying a handbag when I really love it – especially when it’s on sale.
I’ve not gotten into buying vintage handbags all that much, but this beauty was impossible to pass up. I mentioned in a past Junk Love post a monthly flea market that is held in my small town. Well, I found this patent leather handbag for $2 – yes, $2! The inside says the brand is Koret, which after some online researching I learned was one of Jackie Kennedy’s favorite handbag brands during her reign as First Lady.
It is in great shape with only a couple minor wear areas on the corners. It came with a mirror in a satiny sleeve and a change purse on a thin gold chain – both seem to be original to the handbag. I don’t know if the handbag is worth anything, but my guess is that it’s value is above $2. But honestly, that doesn’t matter much to me – I just love the look and can’t wait to take it out on the town!
Until next week!
