I first discovered this particular style of retro purses while at an old warehouse turned vintage shop near my college and was looking through a giant box of vintage purses. I was surprised to see a wicker basket with a facade of glue on sand and seashells.
As I've been searching through vintage finds online, I was pleasantly surprised to repeatedly come across different variations of this design! Some of the pictures above link to recently posted seashell basket purses.
Perfect for the upcoming summer and going to the beach. I also think it would make for an interesting DIY project.
