On my quest to find some vintage purses on ebay I came across the "Alligator Purse" of the 40's and 50's. I was thrifting with my handsome husband this weekend and we actually found a beautiful Alligator/Reptile? handbag/purse.
My alligator/reptile purse is much more understated than the ones I was browsing on ebay and etsy and honestly it may be a faux alligator. I was so surprised at what some women were carrying their lipstick and shopping lists around town in.
Here are some photos of the Alligator purses of the 40's and 50's made in Cuba.

I really want one. I think I would get a lot of comments at the grocery store if I pulled my wallet out of this creepy/glamorous purse. Ha ha!
Thanks for reading. Happy Housewifing!
