Welcome to Bag Lady University, an educational adjunct of the Bag Lady Emporium, home to fine vintage handbags, jewelry, and other rare miscellany since 1996. The purpose of the University is to provide collectors with a cornucopia of information on the makers and history of the handbags and jewelry which are the Bag Lady's profession and passion.
For those unacquainted with the form, this site is a Wiki, a special type of website particularly well-adapted to the task of organizing large amounts of information in a readily searchable form; for an example (and an idea of the inspiration for this site), feel free to explore the Wikipedia. While a typical Wiki is intended for collaborative writing, this site is largely the Bag Lady's personal project. As such, she has reserved the ability to change to the content of pages. However, she is always interested in questions, suggestions or leads you may have, and with that in mind you should feel free to take advantage of the "Contact the Bag Lady" feature at the top left from anywhere on the site to make your feelings known.

The University contains a large variety of information, but here are a few starting places:
