I have a couple of purses by Caro Nan that are very similar to the one pictured above. This type of purse was one of my favorite styles to carry when I was in college.
Pictured above is a cute woven wooden box bag by Caro Nan.
The sides of the purse are painted with shops, the top and upper sides of the purse are collaged, there is a penny glued to the lid, and the interior is lined in quilted brown and white gingham.
I am surprised by how little money Caro Nan purses sell for. I can see them becoming more valuable in the future.
The purse pictured above has a "Buy It Now" price of $25.50 over at Vintage ELViSReaLLyRoCkS on ebay.
