VINTAGE HOLLYWOOD SHAGGEE OF CALIFORNIA NAVY STRAW RAFFIA WITH WOOD BRAIDED HANDLE
An vintage '60s straw raffia purse with a wood wrapped handle by Hollywood Shagee of California.
It is a good size purse perfect for shopping this summer in a deep navy with dark beige handles. It is a 3-section purse with the middle section having a firm clasp so one can keep the important items like money and I.D. in there. There is also a good size metal zippered pocket inside for your most import items. What is a nice touch is that the straw continues onto the top of the middle section so one does not see fabric from the top of the purse but straw like the outside. Nice braided wrapped wood handle which is actually somewhat darker than shown in the photos.
Nice firm locking clasp. Measures 13-1/2” across the bottom & 8-1/2 vertically” and 4-1/2" wide. Very clean inside and the straw is in very good shape. The purse is pushed in on one side from the way it was stored but once you put your items in there it should fill out. Little gold round "feet" so the purse bottom does not touch the floor when setting it down.
Perfect for summer shopping, vacation and cruises.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
