Florida Thrift Finds: Vintage Bag Edition!

Vintage Florida Keys Bag ($5); Vintage Cat Tote ($3) Both: Florida Thrift Shops
I have to say, the Florida thrift shops were overflowing with awesome vintage bags!! Unfortunately, I only (just barely) had room to bring back two! These were my favorites, though, by far.

The first is a vintage Florida Keys Handbag, in the same design I've been wanting for ages! I found this exact one at one of our Richmond antique malls priced at a staggering $45! For five bucks in brand-new condition, I couldn't pass this up. :) (If you like the style, I found a pelican design on etsy for about $20 with shipping.)

The second is another type of bag that's been sitting in my etsy wish list for months- a cat bag! This tote is a generous size, which proved perfect for our day of shopping in Foley on Monday. :) (One of the ones that was on my etsy list is here for $28 if you're interested.)

I have to thank my younger brother for the cat tote! He was so nice to get it for me at Waterfront Rescue Mission when he was getting his golf stuff. I have the best brother ever, no joke. :)


PS: To see the review I did last year of Waterfront Rescue Mission, click here! Every location is still awesome- definitely a must-go thrift shop if you're in Pensacola or the surrounding areas. :)
