Pure vintage awesomeness, this freshly laundered bag reeks of adventure & escapades of decades past (& let's be honest- still smells a bit true to its era- it IS vintage, after all people!!:)) This vintage Swiss Army satchel, circa WWII, has been stored away for decades, waiting for the perfect moment to reappear, receive a good deep-cleaning, & be jazzed up to be the perfect hipster bag.

The strap is adjustable & can therefore be worn across the chest or shortened to be a shoulder bag. It stays securely closed by the silver hook that attaches to the outer pocket. Inside, there is a main compartment that hosts a fabric slip, probably originally sewn to fit a water bottle or flask, no doubt. There is an additional pocket as well- perfection for your go-to items like keys, celly, & a fav lip stain. The material is super tough- a perfect pairing for a gal who is (ahem) “rough” on her purses. No harm done here! The top is trimmed in the yummiest of leather & still has the original leather brand stamped into it, viewable on the back.

To modernize it & give it a touch of my own hipster flair, I’ve trimmed it with a length of rad purple tribal print ribbon. A ”HOORAY FOR TODAY" shout-out (a mantra of Bliss Mayberry) is hand-stamped in permanent fabric paint, but done in a way that fits the feel & era of the original surplus treasure.

Another fun detail included in this bag is the hand-made leather feather charm that has been tied on & detailed with a giant & vintage wooden bead. It is constructed from 100% reclaimed leather, so rest @ ease!!:)

Cheers!! I know you’ll love☺.

**Please note that this listing is for the bag detailed in the first 3 photos. The last 2 photos are the same style bag, but included here so you can take a peek @ the inside compartments as well as how it will look when you rock it:).
