Oh. My. LOOK! Pretty clutch bags that look like old books! Be still my heart…

These are just far too cute for words. Talk about the perfect match for that vintage tea dress, or to glam up a pair of jeans.
vintage book as bag

There are eight bags in the collection, each adorned with a different vintage style book jacket.  With a design to suit every look, they are the perfect go-to accessory for adding glamour to your everyday style or as the finishing touch to a vintage inspired outfit.

My own personal favourite? This one: Paradise Found. You’re not wrong there – I think I’d stroke it every time I picked it up, it’s just a heavenly little bag…


Inside are two roomy pockets, divided by a secure zip pocket. The bag fastens with a zip, and a 60cm long handle is included, which can be removed. The lining has a book page design. PVC with nylon lining. Spotted over at the British library website shop (which, by the way, is an absolute treasure trove of deliciousness), the £40 bags measure 23 x 15 x 5.5cm, and there is a £25 version which is more a large purse size at 16 x 11 x 4cm.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
