Buying and selling vintage purses

Here is my latest video in my series of vintage videos. This one is vintage video #5  — vintage purses. My hope is to try to help others identify some vintage purses. I am not an expert but I like to teach others what I do know and what I have in my collection to “show and tell.”

My collection of purses are all for sale on eBay. This is one of the beaded purses. It is listed at 39.99. It is an evening bag from about the 1940s.

This is also an older evening bag, listed at 24.99. I call it gold lame (lam AY) because of the fabric on the outside. It has a brass “kiss” clasp (closes like a kiss) and a long gold chain.

This is a very popular and common style from the 1950s/60s. It is the type of purse found on shows like “Mad Men.” It is black like a box with a brass kiss clasp and is sometimes called a “Kelly” purse, after Grace Kelly. It also is “footed.” My listing on eBay shows  a better photo of this! (it might not show up if it is already sold).

I hang some of my purses and hats that I have for sale from a hatrack on the wall. Most of these are not vintage except the leather one on the bottom that I have also shown in the video. I see a Laurel Burch cat purse there too!

You can find most of these purses and a lot more at everythingvintagesteph.com where I have an ever changing collection. Feel free to browse my store to get an idea of what kind of prices to expect from a vintage purse. You will find many others selling them for a LOT more! Thanks for looking!
