Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?

Ronay Bag Details

One of the hard parts of this blog is not being able to talk to my mom about where she got all of her things.  Sometimes I know the story, but mostly not.  I must admit however, that I do derive some real pleasure in digging to find the story about a manufacturer that I would otherwise never heard of.  If It's got a tag, I've got a search engine!  I have major internet sleuth fever!!!  How else would I ever know that the Ronay bag company has been around since the 40's and that they were a NY based operation?  I find it fun and interesting, little tidbits of history.   My mom was a world class thrift shopper, this may have been one of her finds.  She had such an eye for quality.  This snakeskin clutch/handbag is in PERFECT condition, not dry or fragile, which leads me to believe it was may be from the 70's or even 80's.  There are a bunch of these on ebay and etsy, if you are in the market for a cute bag.  Found them in eggplant, red, and even this beige.  How fun with jeans, a tee, and heels!  It can even be worn cross body, as my dear friend and guest photographer, Sandy pointed out, (ya' know just in case you want to wear it while boogieing the night away!)  It is Friday after all.  Have a great weekend.  xoxox
