Im so excited that Lara Collins Bobo has agreed to share some images of her favorite collections. You may remember Lara from her giveaway and shop feature. Here is what she has to say about her gathered family treasures.
The bird collection belongs to my mother. It consists of some birds she has collected on her own and some she inherited from my grandmother Enid.
The box handbags are vintage bags designed by Enid Collins and manufactured by her company Collins of Texas. These bags were designed and sold during the 50s - the early 70s. Enid sold the company in the 70s and the company continued to make bags for a short time after that. The most valuable bags have the initials "ec" on them which means they were designed by Enid Collins herself.
Lastly, is my vintage frame collection. I've found these pieces at antique shows, vintage shops, and garage sales.
