I wanted to spruce up this vintage cosmetics case.
I added some more recent hangtags in addition to the orig black one.
Like it?
I think it's cute for inside my handbag.

I added:
pink/white from heritage stripe wristlet
gold from hamptons wristlet
green from amanda satin something

That's a really cute idea :smile: I think 4 is too many though, imo. Looks a little cluttered, KWIM? (But then, I'm the kind of person that wouldn't ever put a scarf on my bag, not my thing.) I think the just the gold one with the black would be so sleek. A really great idea for sprucing up a classic piece :biggrin:

OMG! I used to have a couple of those. I had one that I used for my school pens/pencils and I lost it. Then I got another one about 14 years ago and my friend told me I was crazy to pay $40 something for it, and I lost that one too. Now that I see yours I want another one and I love the additional tags too.

Great idea and thanks for bringing back the memories.

I do like it. I have a random gold metal Coach tag laying around that I was thinking of adding to my purse which already has a leather hang tag. Great minds think alike! :smile:

Yeah, I think 4 is too many too!
I just couldn't decide on colors.
I think for now I'll just do the (orig) black and the gold.

But, wow.
Hangtags sure have improved.
The vintage ones are just 2 thin pieces of leather kinda glued together, not even sealed.
No stitching and flat!
