Grease and Grace go to the Emmy’s!

New At the Shop

When we formed Grease and Grace four years ago, I don’t think we would have ever imagined our art on the red carpet.

Happy purses wind up in happy homes!

Every time I ship a purse (or any of our art) to its new ‘forever home’, I think about its destination, and what it will be like.  I  consider where it’s lived before, and who with (all of our handbags are vintage!)

At the time, when I shipped this pretty blue and black metallic baby to her new home three thousand miles away  in California, I couldn’t really comprehend how cool a life it was about to receive.

As the pictures rolled in from The Emmys 2016, I had tears in my eyes! What an honor, a real joy, to have a piece of our art on that magical red carpet of dreams. Beautiful and sweet Melissa of the Television Academy is the new owner of this pin-striped vintage handbag. It found its perfect home, and perfect owner!

Bringing the “Old Hollywood Style” back to Hollywood.

Just look at that! Bringing the “Old Hollywood Style” back to Hollywood.  Perfectly matched to her gown, it’s as if they were made to go together.

Thank you for sending us these fabulous and glamorous photos! We love it, and we are elated.

pinstriped vintage purse
Dean just keeps rockin’ ’em out. Now we have three ‘new’ purses to offer you at our shop. These are vintage, vinyl bags, pin-striped in a classy rockabilly style. Very awesome for nights out on the town, car shows, pin up model photo shoots, and of course date nights! We do have some in sizes large enough for work or carrying a bit more.

These are actual vintage items, some have certain imperfections. Everything is disclosed on the item listing in text and photos. We carefully scrutinize these purses to choose the ones that are in the best condition, inside and out.

You can take a look at the new purses in the gallery below, then check out the entire selection at the shop.

Our artist Dean adds class to all his projects with his old school pin striping style. You can read more about Dean in his biography section.

Well, in follow up to the sketch post for Saint Patrick’s day (long overdue!) here is how the final image came out for the Lady and Leprechaun print.

A tongue in cheek, bawdy Irish pin-up. You are invited to laugh and celebrate your inner Irish. Who’s the lucky one? The girl with the newfound gold or the leprechaun himself?

This piece is titled, “Devil Take the Women” after the old Irish tune, Whiskey in the Jar.

“I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy”

A fun addition to the home gallery. Chic / Fashion / Retro / Rockabilly / Prehistoric
