My Vintage Clutch

When my grandma passed away, I found a leather clutch bag in the basement. No one really wanted it, but I did. And so I took it home with me. Then, a couple months later, I brought it to London with me. Here and now, this leather clutch comes with me everywhere. And today I thought I'd give you a glimpse into its insides. It holds more than you'd think:

a dark brown coin purse that has "genuine leather" printed in gold on the outside of it-- this is necessary in London, they use so much change here

a black pilot pen, extra fine, 0.5 thickness, product p-500-- I always have one of these on me, this one was given to me by a friend while we were sitting in the library, it was a happy moment in my life
