My favourite vintage buy of 2012 so far must be this cute white retro bag that reminds me so much of the Pan Am era. It was in perfect condition with a little word Nutri-Metrics just below its handle. I do remember this brand of lip stick on my mother's dresser way back and this bag must have been a free gift way back then. It was sold by my favourite vintage seller whom I have not seen for almost 8 months after he sold his shop. He rented a little stall just outside his previous shop and I couldn't resist some of the things he had brought.
This bag was of the perfect hand carry size. It was a petite vintage luggage just right for an overnight trip. The mirror was a little old but I could easily get it replaced. Most importantly, the green interior was in good condition. Apparently, the bag has not been used and was just sitting in a store room for many, many years. Sounds like the store room in my mum's place which I am sure would unearth many treasures only if she let me. I wonder if my mum kept some of my old toys. She has hoarding tendencies and the possibilities are there.
