Model A Decoupage Wooden Box Bag. 1970s. Maker unknown. Fun and unique handcrafted eight-sided wooden box purse with magazine cutouts of various types of Ford Model As—including roadsters, pickups and coupes—decoupaged onto each section. I remember how popular it was back in the ‘70s to burn the edges of a photo or document to make it look older, and that’s what a crafty person did to these pics thirty-some years ago. I do not, however, remember the popularity of the Model A, as I am not quite that ancient. I bought this purse because my husband has a 1928 Ford Model A that he’s restoring, so I thought it’d be cute to carry it when we went cruising. The restoration is on hold due to life’s priorities, so the purse waits patiently for its inaugural ride.
