A vintage favorite

This bag might not look like much to some, after all, it is not a designer handbag and the shape is maybe not the most modern out there, but I love it.

You see, I have always had a thing for maps. I think it is because I love travelling, and maps somehow makes me think of that. And besides travelling, I am also very interested in history, so historical maps are even better, if you ask me!

So I had been looking for a bag with a map on it for ages, when I ran into this one, in a vintage store. I immediately decided I had to get it, even before taking a closer look at it to see what condition it was in, so I was of course extremely pleased when I saw that it was actually in great condition and hardly even looked used.

I got it, and even though I don’t use it a lot (it simply does not go with a lot of outfits, but looks great with an outfit that is completely in one color, like an all black outfit, for instance), I love it, and the leather is really nice as well, and hasn’t worn or aged almost at all.

So if you ever get a weird idea of getting something that isn’t available in stores at the moment (when I got this bag, nobody had bags with maps on them, and it’s still pretty rare as far as I can see), vintage stores is definitely the way to go!
