I've been in total vintage mode for some reason (I think in HS I bought most of my clothes in second hand shops). I found this bag and totally fell in love. Looks like a great winter bag. It looks like it will "slouch" alot, which is sort of a look I've liked recently. It says "Timmy Woods, 1977" on a leather tag inside. What do you think? It was an impulse buy. I can't wait for it to get here. Anyone here purchased any vintage bags recently?

vintage is, essentially second hand, but usually older and still in great condition. Those bags are great finds! The shape of the first one is fab and the second one has so many great great features!!! Love the clasp, and the color and wear of the leather!

I wish I had an artistic side, I've seen a ton of bags I'd love to redo, in different colors and such. Same with clothes.

I love vintage bags. Even the "low-end" bags were more stylish and were well made back in the 60s, 70s....they weren't so vinyl and cheap looking.

Cheers to vintage!
