A big fan of SATC, I used to have love those 70s vintage magazine clutches. These days I keep them locked up in my cupboard until it becomes hip again in, say, 20 years. Anyone else feels the same way?

I had some from Fiorucci in NYC - both the fabulous store and clutch are long gone now. I wasn't always into saving everything. Those bags were a hot hot item on ebay years ago, really got bidded up.

I used to go browse Fiorruci on my lunch hour when I worked in midtown back in the early 80's. Except at that point in my life, the only thing I could afford there were the postcards!

Tammy D - i cant believe you bought up the magazine clutches. I'm a massive fan of vintage bags and bought one at a vintage market here in the UK - I love it, i've never seen anyone else carrying one and it always gets comments! There was one for sale on ebay in the last couple of days that fetched around eightly dollars.

I love these! I can't believe you brought them up either. I've been browsing them on eBay for the last couple of months, along with Nantucket baskets and decoupage purses. I'm feeling SO retro lately.

I love vintage purses and have so very many!!! Will post pictures soon. But now I'm kinda mourning the demise of the magazine clutch. I loved them the most but its so over these days I feel kinda embarrassed carrying them.

woaha. I love vintage bags, but I didn't realize these existed! I must've been living in a hole.

I love Nantucket baskets! Very fun!

And the magazine clutches are really unique.
