I don't know if there are many people here who collect vintage bags, but it's just kind of cool when you find something different in what you thought was just a cute bag. My friend and I just came back from an antique mall where I picked up a velvet evening bag circa 1940. There was this funny thing in it that looked like a hair comb, but it was stuck inside and didn't come out. It turned out to be a coin holder, for quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies. We tried a recent quarter and could not get it to fit, so even the coins were smaller back then. There was still a card in it from the person who was giving the bag. Another bag came from France and had a vintage package of Kleenex still in the plastic (and clean) and a 1941 penny in the pocket. Call it strange, but it's like a little bit of history, and a glimpse back at someone's life who may have loved purses just as much. Cheers.
