Vintage Book Shoulder Purse, Alice In Wonderland, circa 1931. Repurposed vintage hardcover books fashioned into useful purses. Let your purse tell a new story of how it was saved from the shredder and repurposed into a artful purse. Each "Charmed Book Bag" is individually created with the integrity of the book in mind. All vintage books are gently cleaned and treated with Scotchgard® protective coating to repel stains and water. The purse lining is carefully matched to the book cover using vintage and cotton fabrics. Shoulder straps, vintage buttons, cord with lip and purse handles were chosen to compliment the fabric lining and the book cover. The spine is triple reinforced for durability with replacement boards and a padded bottom. My unique sling construction with envelope style closure allows each purse to be built so that the width of the purse is the width of the spine, increasing the volume of what your purse can hold. Most "Charmed Book Bags" come with license/credit card pockets sewn into the lining.

OWN A VINTAGE BOOK SHOULDER PURSE AND SAVE A BOOK. Alice In Wonderland, circa 1931, measures 6.75" high x 9.50" long with a 2.00" reinforced spine. Your purse will open to 6.50". This purse is designed to hold just about everything you use, with two sewn in pockets to hold your credit card and license. The closure button is a vintage black plastic button. The decorative black straps compliment the 3/16" cord with lip that I made from the fabric lining. This everyday purse has mid-length 12.5" shoulder straps to tuck nicely under your arm for security.

Your truly one of kind "Charmed Book Bag" comes complete with the original book. Published by Garden City Publishing Co., Inc, this purse by Lewis Carroll has a decorative litho paper cover, illustrated by A.E. Jackson. The litho cover was sealed with 3 coats of a protective product to repel water and stains.The fabric was treated with Scotchgard®. I have rebound the book as a simple paperback, complete with label information on the book title and year of publication. PLEASE NOTE: If for some reason you do not want the book, contact me for revised shipping costs. I will use the book for creative purposes. Believe me, no book of mine will ever see the trash of day.
