Tooled Leather Bags – A Curated Selection of Some of the Best Vintage, Secondhand and Handmade Tooled Leather Bags.

This is one of my op shop “unicorn finds”, one of the things that is on my list to be looking for every time go op shopping.  I have a few unicorn items that change over time but this one has been with me for years.  Sadly I know I’m not the only one so I’ll just have to keep on hunting lol

I’ve owned a vintage leather tooled bag and I used it until it wore out.  I just love them and their durability.  Tooled leather bags still look great even with some signs of wear and tear, knocks and marks.  I get really put off with bags that peel and tend to leave them behind in op shops even if they are in perfect condition then I know they are unlikely to stay that way.

I had a quick look online to save you some time and effort and handpicked a few beauties.

They are all in Australia so you know if you order you won’t need to wait too long for them.

Click through to the websites for more info on each bag though and info on postage costs and measurements ect.

If I’d have been more organised I’d have done this post a week or two ago and dropped a few unmissable hints to my husband or children for Mother’s Day!  

Remember if you buy any of them to share them in the I Love To Op Shop group on Facebook here or tag me on Instagram here with #ilovetoopshop

Hope everyone is well.  It’s cold and wet in Melbourne today, I’ve drunk eleventy thousand cups of tea, we have a chicken curry smelling delicious in the slow cooker and it’s movie night so the kids have picked a film to watch tonight.

Stay safe, Vicky
