Each time I go thrifting, it feels like I am going on a quest to find a hidden treasure.
Unlike retail stores that have their pieces organized by color and size, vintage stores are one piece stores. Sometimes the treasure you are looking for is the first thing you lay your eyes on when you go into the store, and sometimes you will go through all the racks, and still won’t find it.
Vintage bags are one of my favorite vintage items to buy; take it as it is, without fittings or adjustments necessary. Through the years the collection gets bigger, while each bag carries its own unique story of where you found it and under what circumstances, and it's even more enjoyable if you happen to know the history of the piece you holding in your hand.
Here, Tchelet and I wanted to share with you our collection of vintage bags, and wish that we'll find more of these treasures in the future.
