Vintage Collections: Tooled Leather Handbags

I have started to notice there are certain things that are considered staples in vintage shopping..I think tooled handbags are a huge staple in vintage shopping, just as tapestry bags are. I am pretty sure I need every single one of these in my life. Nothing is more beautiful than the intricate designs etched into these bags. Although my collection is small, I would love to expand and include some of these lovely etsy finds. Which one is your favorite? Are there any vintage collections that interest you the most?

  6. I found a messenger bag like this at Goodwill! I love it, it is so beautiful. Only thing is, is that it is heavy to carry, but so worth it!
