I'm so very grateful to my customers for many years of support and friendship! And I also appreciate their endless questions about vintage exotics, which essentially motivated me to invest this much time and resources in this research to be able to complete the compilation of this collection prior to having our fashion encyclopedia published. Here is a small sample of their kind testimonials and fun stories about the handbags they purchased from our boutique, the collection, and the book.

"Your purse exceeded our expectations. It is wonderful. My wife loves vintage purses, and I enjoy shopping for them, they are just so classy. It is great. She has not calmed down on how much she loves it. Thanks so much for finding and saving these beautiful purses, trust me you will have me (buying) again.” -
