Sneak Peek

Here is something I have been working on since the winter.
 
I bought some vintage handbags, beat up ones, from Etsy sellers. Then I made little flowers and beaded thingys and attached them. I had to buy a purse handle from overseas for one. With the Iceland volcano, it was deeeelaaaaayed big time.
 
I guess that people call this "altered art". I just call it pretty.
 
I had these in mind for weddings, and other special occasions; but now I am not so sure I even want to get rid of them, I love them so much!
 
I am unsure if I want to try listing them on Etsy or not. I was thinking of getting more bags and making more, but I don't want to invest a whole lot of money in handbags and materials to make the embellishments and then have them not sell.
So what do you think? To try to sell, or not to sell? Are they corny? Are they too "shabby"? (I made them kind of shabby on purpose.) I thought I might try a few bags of different colors - and maybe even some black bags. (Or, custom bags.....)

I think they're beautiful! I'd buy one for sure if I had the extra money. I think they'd sell on Etsy. :) You're so creative!
