This is the vintage bag I got while I was travelling in Europe this past summer. It was at a stall in the Noordermarkt in the Joordan neighbourhod of the lovely city of Amsterdam. Noordermarkt is a market that sells an abundance of vintage and second-hand fashion goods. To get there, you can take either tram number 3 or 10; or bus numbers 18, 21, 348, 353 at Marnixplein. Here is a better explanation from one of my favorite travel websites for what Noordermarkt is.
The purse is from the 1940's and I had the strap seperately made. I hope it will withstand the wear-and-tear of my busy days,
I intend for this one to last a very long time!
Objects I usually have that aren't shown here are: my phone, my iPod, my BLANK CANVAS pouch bought from the Tate Modern containing various pens, pencils, rulers, sharpener and a calculator.
