Is anyone old enough to remember these?  I do.  When Chris, owner of the Attic Window Quilt Shop showed me this beautiful beaded purse it brought back a slew of memories.  Chris said that she got it from a friend whose Mother had received it as a graduation gift in 1940.  It was purchased at Herpolsheimer's (a local Grand Rapids department store) and was handmade in Belgium. 
This is a closer look for you to see all the beads.  Those were the good old days, when we only needed a small bag to carry lipstick and a tissue.  Today I'm thankful that we have so many quilting patterns and can make the large purses or bags to carry all the stuff we have to haul around with us every day.  Stop by the Attic Window Quilt Shop and take a look at the bag samples and the patterns.  Or you can check out the calendar and sign up for a bag class that Lee Ann or Marilyn teach. You will be surprised at what you can do with their excellent instructions.
