This adorable purse was upcycled from a vintage 1960s book entitled, "The Curious Mollusks." The cover is a lovely blue green linen with a black sketch of a snail on the front. The spine (the bottom of the purse) has been widened to a roomy 3.5 inches. The purse measures 9 inches across and 5.5 inches deep. The inside is lined with a matching blue green fabric featuring concentric circles. The fabric is 100% cotton and has been treated with a stain and waterproof spray. The button closure features a silvertone nautilus shell. The elastic band is covered in fabric and makes for easy opening and closing. The inside of the purse features 2 roomy pockets for your phone, keys, etc.

This purse is one of a kind and cannot be recreated. Pick it up before someone else does! ; )
