You really can find almost anything at the World's Longest Yard Sale. I found this gorgeous handmade purse!
I have been intending on making one like this for years, but since I haven't done so yet, I figured I would buy one to "tide me over". It has such pretty detail, such as a barkcloth insert, vintage button, and scalloped trim.
I'm enjoying sharing my finds with you. Please come back tomorrow to see more vintage goodies!

By the way, I just discovered that the maker of this beautiful bag also sells on etsy at http://www.toteworks.etsy.com/. This purse is very well made, it even has a couple of pockets sewn into the inside. I see that she also takes custom orders. I would highly recommend her work!

Hi Becca!!
You found the BEST treasures...
I'm trying not to be so jealous!!!
Love the bag...I have a pattern to make one...and haven't even opened it, plus sewing isn't as fun as shopping for treasures.
Lucky You!!
Deb :)

Oh my goodness Becca.. What a gorgeous bag you found. That fabric is just yummy. Between this and all the other pretty things you posted yesterday, I can't decide which is my favorite. I'd love to have them all. Stop by my blog for a visit if you haven't yet to see all the goodies I found during my shopping spree last week. Knowing how similar our tastes are, I'm sure you will love seeing what I found.
