kara's vintage collection: clutches

a word from my sister:
what girl doesn’t love a good clutch?  seeing that i have too many to fill this rather large box is the best answer to that question. I’ve been adding to my clutch collection the longest, purchasing them from various estate sales, thrift stores and church sales.  I always open the clutch to get a peek at the label and then try to judge how old it is, based on the look of the font.

my greatest find was at a goodwill on my daily walk home from work in savannah.  naturally, I would stop in 2-3 times a week hoping to spot a treasure. one day, a black patent leather fold caught my eye; when I opened it, it had a christian dior label!  my favorite part, though, was finding the owner’s old $100 money wrap issued from the bank. no money, sadly, just the wrap, but it made my day!
