Glomesh Monday #1

Since my very first Glomesh round-up back in 2009, my collection has both been streamlined and expanded (but mostly expanded). To be welcomed into my beloved collection, Glomesh items must now only be the Genuine Article - this means no more faux mesh! If I find any Gold Crest, Oroton or Park Lane items I particularly like, they go in a separate collection ;) Items must be in good condition with the Glomesh tag inside and no missing mesh.

Kick starting my series of Glomesh posts are the small accessories I've collected. First up is my collection of purses, including the large rectangular one which I'm currently using. This was given to me by my Gran a couple years ago for my birthday, still brand new in its box. The purse at the top is my Mum's, which was given to her for Christmas in 1977, also from my Gran. There's a lucky horseshoe charm sewn on the inside engraved with her name and the date :) The other two cream purses were lucky op shops finds that I managed to pick up for a few dollars each.



Next are two small coin purses. I found the silver one for about $6 at mum and I's favourite rummage-y op shop, and the cream one was given to me as a Christmas pressie also via op shop :)


I picked up this sunglasses case at the first Burnside vintage fair I went to for $18, and this key wallet for $1 from an op shop. I have a smaller key wallet that I keep in my bag but I'm not sure what brand it is. I love that it keeps all my keys together so they don't jingle around in my bag :)

Concluding my collection of small accessories is this cream cigarette case and gold lighter, both found during a trip to the Burnside vintage fair for $15 and $18 respectively. I'm not using the case at the moment but I think it would be handy to keep something like a packet of tissues, chewing gum and band aids in :) I bought the lighter as a memento of my Grandad and it sits on a shelf of my desk where I see it everyday.


Do you have any Glomesh accessories that you use day-to-day or do you save them for special occasions?

    1. I didn't know about the lighters either so I was really excited to find that one :) I once saw a mesh halter neck top at a vintage fair but I'm not sure if it was Glomesh haha.
