This Costume Professional likes to get crafty outside of work too! While marrying my love of fashion and crafty skills I recently learned a new skill- leather purse restoration and rehabilitation! #costumedesignergetscrafty#leatherworking101#vintagecoach ・・・
Been wanting to present my recent new obsession- Vintage Coach Bag restoration and rehab projects! After my recent move I threw away and donated so many poorly made fast fashion bags that I promised myself I would try to purchase sustainable and up thrifted quality purses that could go with a lot of different looks. I had been wandering my local Goodwill back in August and had found a leather backpack and a smaller leather crossbody too cute to pass up. Upon closer inspection I saw it was worth a lot more than being sold! I decided to purchase and give them a once over. A bath, bronze polish, leather dye, and a few more steps later I was able breathe a little more life into the smaller cross body purse. And thus my new obsession! I bought another smaller black crossbody one off Ebay for a really good price and also Ebayed a matching hang tag for one brown purse that had been missing its tag. All in all with supplies for the refurbish and the bag purchases I am out only $110 all together. Not bad for a good thrift session that when taken care of properly will last a long time. Both the brown backpack and the black crossbody have not been touched up with leather dye but I am going to try them out with just their own vintage flair- it was so easy to touch up the first one I can always decide to do so in the future. Looking forward to wearing them out and about in Orlando🤗👜.......................................... #vintagecoach#vintagecoachbag#vintagecoachpurse#coachvintage#vintagecoachbackpack#vintagecoachbags#vintagelove#vintagebagrestoration#vintagebagrestorer#coachbag#leatherbag#leatherdye#leatherconditioning#alexdiscoversorlando#thriftyfinds#thriftstorefinds#thriftyfashion#thriftyshopper#thriftyshopperfinds#thiftywoman

Victorian wine glasses are such the perfect size for serving up your homemade Sloe gin, marmalade vodka and Bramble brandy...
The Victorian’s loved their coloured glass and so do I - they’re beautiful - hand blown and each unique...
Day 23 of #merlesvintagechallenge TRIO - first thing that came to mind was some vintage robes and jackets I have ♥️ I have them grouped into colour. Jackets, robes and kimonos are my addiction. Here are some lovely trios that compliment each other. Satin, silk, velvet, embroidery, sequins, chinoiserie, fringing and feathers are the magick words♥️
Super productive morning. 90% of my new stock is cleaned, pressed, photographed and ready to be listed! 📷
I'm super proud of this new batch of Web And Nest goodness; such a great variety of shapes and sizes (and everything is just the right amount of weird).
Side note. I'm watching Dracula In Love on @amazonprimevideo while I work. It is not good. Oh, how I love a bad vampire flick. 🧛♂️
