About

Petite Vintage At Long Last!

I have waited for years to start this business. Who has time when you're raising two kids, taking care of a husband, teaching 5th graders, gardening and raising chickens? After many years of "gathering" treasures from flea markets, antique stores, and garage sales I looked around and found that I had boxes and boxes of "stuff." I had vintage tablecloths, brooches, handkerchiefs, old lace, antique netting, 1940's aprons... really the list goes on and on. One day my husband said, " What ARE you going to do with this stuff ?"
That was a really good question! The answer came to me in bits and pieces; mostly in the middle of the night.. Gradually the idea became clear. I wanted to sew purses that had a combination of today's fashion, vintage materials, and a sense of fun. I made myself a purse, carried it around town, and everyone said, "You know, you could sell that!"
For the past year I have sewn a number of custom handbags, placed my purses in a couple of local stores, and made clutches for number of weddings And guess what? They did sell! I decided to try and bring Petite Vintage to a larger audience, and Etsy does just that! It brings the whole world to my doorstep! So, (or should I say, sew) I'm off to design another handbag and I've got to tell you, I'm having the time of my life! Thanks, Etsy!

Welcome to Petite Vintage!

Petite Vintage is a business that grew out of my love of old buttons, vintage tablecloths, and antique brooches. I have boxes and boxes of treasures.They are unique items that I have collected over the years. Everyone at the local flea markets, antique stores, and garage sales know me well. All Petite Vintage handbags have at least a small (petite) amount of vintage materials worked into the design. It’s what makes it “extra” special. You might ask, “Why choose a Petite Vintage handbag instead of a mass produced bag that is made in a foreign country?”
• You get to choose the style and fabric for your handbags so that they tell the world exactly who you are.
• We will answer all your questions and work with you so that you are completely satisfied with your dream handbag or clutch. We’re talking personal service here!
• We are prompt and will deliver your handbags on time.
• They are top of the line American made handbags that are sewn with industrial strength products and beautiful quality fabrics.
• The price is hard to beat considering you are getting a one-of-a- kind designer handbag that is individually hand sewn in Petite Vintage’s studio.
• You have a handbag that is personal and made just for you and it's kind of like having your own "Fairy Handbag Godmother!"
