In keeping with the theme of repurposing old things (which I love) and automotive history (which both my husband and I love), I want a Kim White purse!!! Jon actually sent me this link, so it is like he is giving me permission to splurge, right? Hee. Hee. Check out her website here. Wouldn't it be cool to pick one made with Ford fabric, and then attach a Fordite cab to it, perhaps surrounded by filigree?
Why are Kim White Handbags so special? Made from vintage automotive fabrics, Kim White uses dead stock never-used textiles intended for use in American automobiles: cars, trucks and vans. She fortuitously unearthed an entire warehouse of automotive fabric, which may be the last existing stock anywhere in the US, and she is the sole owner of these amazing textiles.
I also fully intend to measure myself to order a top from Etsy seller Glamarita. Ronnie makes clothes from men's ties! How cool is that?
