My favorite Item in the shop right NOW....
This pretty number reminds me of home in many ways, it recalls my fathers proud family who worked in the citrus crops and packing houses of the central valley . I remember the drive to grandmas house in Woodlake California was always surrounded on either side by the endless citrus orchards. Grandpa had a few trees in the back yard , I still think of him when I see them .
I still look forward every year to the winter crop of juicy oranges .
This watercolor print modernistic purse is as sweet as any orange i've ever had! Circa 50s to early 60s its roomy - another thing I love/need in my vintage bags .
