I have had a few tooled leather handbags along the way, which have been sold on to fellow devotees. For the moment these are the 3 that are currently on rotation, although I don't use them everyday because I am a BIG handbag kind of girl, & these beauties just aren't quite BIG enough for all the stuff I carry around all the time.
This one would have to be my favourite. It's very big for a tooled bag, I've never seen another one this large. The only issue with that is it gets very heavy! The leather is so thick & the tooled flowers are lovely. It's still in perfect condition. I got this one on ebay for only $10 which really seemed like a steal!
This is the second largest. I like the little pocket that sits under the flap on the front for extra storage. The colour is a perfect tan & it has a nice plaited shoulder strap.
This was my latest tooled find from a local op shop for $6. It's slightly smaller (to me anyway...but my sister would consider it big!), & it has a lovely lock clasp detail on the front. The tooled detail is really pretty & again in new condition. I think that's the beauty of a good tooled handbag....they seem to get better with age.
