I know that Megs started it in or around August of 2005 and that Vlad came on a month or so later. Did it start out as a blog on purses and then grow from that? Anyone who was around at its inception...please tell about it at that time and how it evolved. I've put this question a kazillion different ways in 'Search' and came up with nothing. I just love what a complete community it has turned out to be and wonder about its early days and how it was then. So........... "tPF - The Early Period" ???
