Vintage Magazine Clutches

The other day one of my readers named Tammy left a comment on a post that I made way back on April 11, 2006 about a vintage magazine clutch.
Tammy wrote: "My sister and I have wanted one of these purses since we were teenagers. Are there any more available or another source where we can purchase one. It would mean the world to both of us. Thank you"
Well, today I scoured the internet and found 6 vintage magazine clutches to share with you and one new one.
These fun purses were popular in the 1970's and 1980's.
Enjoy...

I had the idea, and was the exclusive producer/marketer
of the MAGAZINE CLUTCH BAG in
the 1970's. I moved into other
areas of business and otherwise
so picked up my chips and left
it to hundreds of others to then
compete with each other as against
my previous monopoly.

PS: the PRIMO cover sounded fine
and was also the name of a contract furniture company in the UK in which i held shares but was run by my brother Martin (since in
voluntary liquidation i think!).

Initially no magazines seemed to understand what i was talking about so the initial three covers ie PRIMO/CLAUDIA/MODONI were 'dummy' covers that i also produced before picking up my chips and letting others pile in with all sorts of covers.
