Aaahhhh! Look what I just found, being sold vintage?! A 90s metal coffin purse... these were super good quality, made by a small metalworker in NYC in the East Village. I had one when I was 17, which I bought at Skin Crawl Boutique near Avenue A. Years later, like in 2004 or something, I sold it on eBay like an IDIOT, and I quickly regretted it. You know those "if you could go back in time and give sagely advice to your 17-year-old-self" memes? I wouldn't give myself any sagely advice about career or sexism or relationships.. yeah. Just don't sell the coffin. ; )

You could say I am moderately stoked to have found one again. ;)

My original had a blue velvet interior, but hey, red is always in style.

Thanks!! The blue was gorgeous too.. just the right shade of blue. I think there was a purple option as well, and possibly green. That's what happens when it's other goth kids designing the items... they get the aesthetics right!

Aww, yay! I had one of these, with a purple lining. Years later I ended up giving it to a friend.

However, I still have the larger version of this purse, that was made from black metal and had a cut-out cross on the lid to show velvet underlining. I redid the lining in pink, because of course I did.
