Handbag Mania  - Enid Collins

 

Several years ago, an Enid Collins bag caught my eye when I was sick and tired of the department store offerings of garbage bags, and I had to have it. Because…

My confession:  I ADORE handbags.

Yeah, most of you probably know that. LOL.

I know, I know, most women are into shoes. I would be except I have small feet--7 narrow--and shoes are hard to fit. And I have a bum right ankle; so heels are out.

 But handbags... Sigh. I can put one over my arm, around my wrist, under my arm, or over my shoulder and am one happy camper.

So I began to explore eBay. (Uh-oh, you say, not eBay. We'll never see you again, VB. LOL.) I bid on an Enid linen and leather tote, entitled Cable Car and sat back and waited. Imagine me when I won!

Cool! Let's do that again. So I found a box bag--Pavan--and won it!

Cool! Now, I am a collector. And am obsessed. Suddenly, in every antique store, I find an Enid bag I have to have. One clutch I found came from a mall. It had been manufactured by the Tandy Corporation after they bought Enid Collins. Here's a photo of all my treasures:

 

 

So my collection grew. I still check on eBay and ETSY. And found more fun...an Enid pin! Now, I have three. See what you think:

 

 

 

So what's your obsession--shoes, bags, pins, books, vintage postcards, kaleidoscopes, Viewmasters (oops, more of VB's collections). Share yours!
