Awesome Affordable Etsy Find of the Week!


My current wallet, an amazing 1970s metallic silver clutch I found for $2 at an estate sale a few years ago (yes, I breathlessly describe this backstory to every single unfortunate soul who compliments me on it), is disintegrating. And I mean that quite literally: every time I open it to get out my debit card, stringy little pieces of it come off in my hand. This makes for some awkward encounters with cashiers, especially when I start crying.

So yeah, I'm in the market for a new wallet. Searching Etsy for candidates, I came across this beautiful vintage clutch. After the few years of therapy it will take to learn to let go of my current wallet (an amazing 1970s metallic silver clutch I found for $2 at an estate sale a few years ago, did I mention that?), if this one is still available, it might be just perfect.

It's SO sad when something you adore just starts falling apart and there's nothing you can do to stop it. After all, we can't defy the laws of physics. :-(

I had a wallet just like that, and I left it at my exes house, and never got it back...it still makes me sad.
