Re: Help ID'ing a vintage style purse - UPDATE

This one is about as close as I've found so far.  Found it on Etsy, but the seller states it is in "rough" condition.

 

Mine had thos metallic edge protectors on it, too.  I think they were to help hold the case together since it was pretty cheaply made! :-)

@suzyQ3 I used your description of lucite to further define.

@madzonie something like one of these?

Thanks, @sidsmom. I think I saw the same collection on etsy. The one that reminds me most of the ones we carried is the purse farthest to the left on she second row from the bottom.

 

We did love those. And it brings back such memories. I think we might have called them "suitcase" purses. Honestly, though, I would not carry one today because they really were rather awkward to use; plus, I only use bags with shoulder straps.

Found these were also called "choo choo bags" in the 1960s!

Yes!  Almost the same as the one I had.... a little less length and a little more metal around the edges and Pink with a padded handle.... and it would look just like mine.  Came with two keys as well!
