Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
As a new colector of lucite purses, I was stunned to find so many never-before seen bags in this amazing book. I own about 25 now, but found only 5 of mine in this book. Perhaps mine are more common (although some of mine are pretty amazing, too, at least to me.) I wonder where this lady gets all these. I tried buying them on ebay, but found the results disappointing, lucite bags arriving with undisclosed damage, what a hassle. I've been buying at antique fairs and also from a couple of websites with very good results, lately having found a new website at [...] which has great purses and lots of cool photos. If I ever get to New York, I would love to visit the shop this author owns. It must be wonderful. The infomation in this book has been most helpful to me and I use it both as a reference and a book to drool over. I would recommend it to anyone who loves vintage purses.

This was purchased as a Christmas gift for a friend, and she was very happy with it. So, of course, I was happy as well.
