Museum of Bags and Purses

This post is simply on something that fascinates me--bags and purse. There is now a museum in Amsterdam showcases the history of bags and purses. Tassem Museum has a very informative web site. It isn't in English, but you can still enjoy the photos. I have made a few, but they don't compare to these.

The collection is broken down into time periods:

1500-1700

1700-1800

1800-1900

1900-1950

1950-2000

After 2000

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I have to say, I like your style - not many blogs where I can read about vintage purses, hummingbird food and ear deformities (and how to correct them) all in one go - but I like it!

See you around...
