Vintage Art - Hubcap handbag !

Do you know, one of the things I love most about the whole vintage cultural scene is the huge tie that is had with the artistic world. The vintage cultural scene is choc full of creative and artistic people producing some wonderful vintage inspired art - commercial, practical, low brow or high brow art - it's all there! Fashion, make up, hairstyles, car art, original music, burlesque costume and dance, architecture, decor and of course the more 'traditional' aspects of art - painting and sculpture. I simply love it ! And here is something else to love.....

My darling friend Brenton made this beautiful peice of practical art - a shiney, statement peice for any fashionista and an intriguing talking point for any car enthusiast......the wonderful hubcap handbag ! Made from hubcaps off a late 1960's Falcon and lined with felt it certianly gets attention wherever it goes, not to mention holds all my lippy's and sunglasses mean feat for any handbag !

If you would like to know more simply leave a comment and I will be sure an pass it on to Brenton for you.

A world of creativity - you gotta love it !


  1. Awesome! It's so unexpected and surprisingly chic. Tell Brenton there's a future in car part accessories ; )

  2. OMG I love that! I have a handbag that I bought on Etsy a couple of years ago that has the insignia plate off of a Fairlane 500 on the front of it. I always get so many compliments on it!
