Postage Stamp Purse. 1960s. Shiny, plastic-y, textured, woven and braided paper-chain purse, interspersed with postage stamps and made in the tradition of the more common cigarette-pack purses. This is one fascinating purse. It’s a shame she’s in such poor condition. She’d probably be usable as a clutch if I removed her strap, but I don’t want to, even though I’d love to dissect the stamps to see if they’re real or if they were simply Xeroxed and laminated. Oooooh. Dissection. So very tempting. I even have a vintage nurse’s uniform to wear while I do it. But I’m not. Or am I?
