Adrienne Vittadinis’ purse sale is being sold on eBay for £25,000.
The seller claims it’s a ‘tribute to my mother, grandmother, aunt and uncles’.
She said the sale was inspired by a moment when she and her brother were in the shop when they were given an invitation to try out the new ‘vintage style’ purse.
Vittadinas said: ‘I’ve never been a collector, but my aunt and uncle are really into it, and it’s like the only way I can describe this is that it’s vintage.’
She said it was a gift to her mum, who was a tailor, and her aunt and her uncle, who were seamstresses.
Adrienne has since put the purse up for sale on Etsy for £10,000, with the proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
She added: ‘It’s very important to have a family legacy, so we’re not doing it just for myself, it’s really for people who are in the same situation as I am.’
Adrien, who is also an avid runner, has been looking for a new purse ever since she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She said: I just really wanted a good, modern purse for my mom to keep her money safe, so I started shopping for one and I’ve been searching the internet for years.’
I’m a little bit shocked that it sold for so much.’
