Handmade objects always have a story. They have a real character and charm over mass-produced items. My blog is featuring all the handmade items I make and I'm also going to post Free Patterns for crocheting, knitting and other crafts. I'm also going to post my favourite recipes for free! Are you interested in a certain pattern or recipe? Feel free to contact me.

I love to recycle books and records and create unique purses, clocks, IPhone docks, Ereader Tablet Covers, hollow safe books. You can find my crafting in My RETROGRANDMA Etsy Store

I also love to seek out collectible treasures and you can find them in my RetroClassics shop on Etsy

I've had a number of opportunities for my unique handmade items to be featured on many blogs. I LOVE the RETRO ERA and that's why they call me "RETROGRANDMA"! FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/Retrograndma

The Go Go's Beauty and the Beat Record Purse


I've come up with a different twist to a record handbag. This particular one is made from the vinyl record of the Go Go's - Beauty and the Beat. They play some great pumped up music! I created a few of these and they are selling quick. I've priced them at an affordable price - so that could be the reason why.

Button ribbon loop closure, polyweb handle, and plastic canvas for bottom and sides sewn on with strong yarn. Watch heads turn as you walk down the street with this conversational purse! Your friends will envy you for this Blast from the past purse!
