I remember when I was a little girl growing up in the 90s, my Mom gave me a special bag from her youth. It was a compact box-like bag with a woven cane structure and sweet pink lining. My grandmother had bought it for her back when the stories on the radio were the primary form of entertainment and friends would actually phone each other for hours in the afternoon to catch up on the latest gossip.
This week’s FOTW reminds me of that bag my mother gave me, which I held so dear and wore and played with to tatters. Through the years, after moving several times and many a spring-clean, I’ve lost track of the bag. It still has a little place in my heart though, which is why I think this bag resonates with me.
Plus, it looks almost identical to the bag featured in the offbeat film Nurse Betty (see below)! Available here.
