Vintage Advertising Post Card for Purse "Agents"

SPECIAL POST! Vintage Purse Post Card. 1910s-1920s. Maker: E.H. Condon. This is a post card from the teens or twenties, soliciting agents to sell 13 ½” x 11 ½” bags, because “Every Woman Needs a Utility Bag.” Just 88 cents! E.H. Condon was also a wholesaler of rugs.

I’ve started to collect vintage purse ephemera, including ads, cards and photos. They’re definitely a lot easier to store than vintage purses!

Bonus! Here’s the Google maps link to the building at 12 Pearl Street in Boston that used to house the E.H. Condon company. Check out the amazing architecture.
