Brigid's retro handbags are one-of-a-kind lovingly restored doctor bags and classic bowlers. The vintage bags--some dating back to the 1900's--are repaired, relined and can be equipped with removable shoulder straps.

The hand-tooled leather bowler is from 1965 and would look so cool with current bohemian-inspired fashions. For a more classic Pradaesque style the 1939 doctor's bag would be a chic accessory.

Brigid's Bags collection is constantly changing as she unearths new finds.
