Rooster Kit Purse with Original Box - BONUS! FIDM Exhibit Info

Rooster Kit Purse with Original Box. 1960s. Maker: JewelTone/General Crafts/Some '60s Housewife. Fabulous make-by-number olive green tote-style purse with bejeweled and sequined rooster crowing at the rising sun. Comes with original box and catalog.

Regular readers of this blog know I have quite the collection of late ‘60s kit purses, which were created in the style of Enid Collins.

Yep, just a few.

I’m excited to report that some of my destination-themed vintage kit purses from The Vintage Purse Gallery will be on display at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) Museum Shop/Clever Vintage Clothing "Planes, Trains and Automobiles - Travel and Fashion" exhibit, now through July 19.

Pretty cool, huh? If you're in the L.A. area, you should check it out!
