Cigar Box Purse

November 2, 2010

I’ve adored these cigar box purses for a while….

They sell for anywhere from $10 – $60 on Ebay and Etsy.

I found this beauty…..

…at Goodwill for $1.99!


BUT,  look at the fabric used on the back….

Whhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyy in the name of all that is good and holy would you put this fabric (YES, those are shiny, be-dazzly, crystal thingies on the handles of the purses) on the back of this classic cigar box?

What’s a girl to do?  A girl gets out the fabric scissors and CHANGES THAT FABRIC.  I went with classic red (to MATCH the front of the box.. what a concept!)

Now I can sell it for $50…..
