i am the queen and you are the king, it's only natural for us to spend the night

I found this leather bag at a flee market for €5,- and when I visited Laura Dols (a famous vintage store in Amsterdam) this weekend I saw that they sell old leather purses for up to 30 euros there. The ones they sold there were in quite bad condition and most of the time they're not even that old, more like someone's grandma's leftover handbag from the nineties. There's so much more fun in finding a hidden treasure somewhere in a flee market, thrift store or Salvation Army than to find something at a vintage store that you know is worth a fraction of the price you're paying and was hand-picked by someone else.

p.s. I'm on bloglovin now! click
