It's in the Bag!

This past weekend I was a Portland Poodle.

I headed up to Portland, OR with Husband for a weekend of fun, family, and SHOPPING!!

Vintage shopping to be precise. How did I not know Portland was the place to find all the vintage treasures I had been searching for?? 

So much fun! We went all over the city, and found some amazing deals. Everything was ridiculously low priced! Some items, identical to ones sold near me, were a quarter of the price found here. Plus, no sales tax! Bonus!

Had I driven to Portland, I would have come home with lamps, tables, curtains, and pyrex; but since we flew, I had to limit myself to smaller items. Bummer!

Since handbags fall into that smaller size category, and since I am a handbag hoarder, I of course wanted to bring a few new bags home!


Hehe! I get giddy everytime I look at my new treasures!!

Here they are!!!



Perfect box bag purchased from the beautiful Sarah
of Simply Vintage Boutique and etsy shop Stutterinmama!


Adorable pink purse found at Lulu's Vintage


Cutest Little Bag Ever. Found it at Bettie Page Clothing store!


One of my favorite finds, was this Enid Collins original!
And appropriately, it features a cable car!
found at Magpie Vintage
Aren't they all fantastic?! ;)

I brought home many other fabulous finds, establishing this as one of my most exciting shopping trips EVER!

  4. They really and completely are fantastic!!! You hit the vintage purse jackpot big time, dear gal! Portland is the number one destination I'd like to visit in the US - who knows, maybe our next road trip will be south of the 49th and down to Oregon! :)
