A Cache of Classic Clutches

Click Here for Vintage Handbags

classic clutches dallas!

You cram so much stuff into your handbag, your friends call you Mary Poppins.

Slip into a different character with a spoonful of Classic Clutches.

Dallas entrepreneur Lacey Stevenson owns the online biz dedicated to timeless vintage pieces. We’re talking 250-plus by famous makers (Anne Klein, Carlos Falchi, Gucci, Nicholas Reich) and unknown labels with a whole lot of personality.

Stevenson combs her trusty sources (thrift stores, antiques shops, estate sales) for the treasures, cleans and repairs them by hand, and uploads them to her website. She makes searching the impressive stash simple. Just click on one of the twelve categories — beaded, snakeskin, envelope style — for an edited lineup.

Prices range from $22 for a casual two-tone leather number to $525 for a karung snakeskin Judith Leiber with gold and tortoiseshell hardware. Shipping averages about $10, and delivery time is a week tops.

It’s practically perfect in every way.
