I'm in Love with Enid Collins Handbags


Enid Collins Handbags!, originally uploaded by Gigi & Big Red.

I've been dreaming of finding some good Enid Collins bags and low and behold look what I found today! I didn't purchase them but I had to take a picture. They were both in very good condition too. What I'm really hoping for is one of her wooden box bags! This antique mall was so big and packed to the gills with great stuff ~ a wee bit over priced of course but a fun place I definately want to go back soon when we have more time to ding around.

Oooh, i know why you're in love!!!
What's a reasonable price to pay for one of these bags? It doesn't seem that many made it over here to Aussie land!

Well someare going for over $200 on ebay but those are the ones that were Enid origianls before the Tandy Leather Co. bought them out. They still make EC bags today - I think Target had them at one point, but theres' nothing like the old ones from the 60's! They're just too cool!

I have the Cable Car and The Butterfly purses, I love her bags! I've seen miniature ones on Etsy just for Blythes, they are perfect! I'm thinking of treating one of my Blythes to one this Christmas, or maybe all three of them in case the others get jealous, haha. Hello by the way, I love your blog!
