I have a new purse. Made out of a pair of boots.
I love Absolutely Alabama on Fox 6 our location station with Fred Hunter. Fred is about the nicest man you will meet. He came to The Blount County Quilters guild a few years ago and taped our quilt show and then the guild hosted the Christmas Special. You can go to www.myfoxal.com and look for Absolutely Alabama and see the wonderful things he host each Friday.
Well one of his was about a man named Gary D. Reid who takes boots and makes purses from them. That was just right up my way of thinking! How I love purses and boots. Now you can have the best of two worlds. I found online where you can purchase them. I emailed the lady, Patricia and she gave me a price for the purse, I paid for it via PayPal and today in the mail I received my purchase. OH I LOVE IT MORE THAN I IMAGINED!
Here are some more pictures and at the bottom of the post you will find a picture with the contact info.
You can see pretty good size room in the bag. It is VERY clean.
Each bag signed and numbered by Mr. Reid.
Side view. This is a nice size purse. All made by hand in the good old USA, actually in Cullman, AL
The decorative piece of the purse has a clip on it like and old earring back. Now you can change it up or even add your favorite pin or item of your choice.

Thank you Fred Hunter. I hope you never quit the Absolutely Alabama series.
