    I found an interesting origami paper box today and inside it was this teeny tiny purse! so cute! There is a medal attached with a 'B' on it and another 'B' embroidered on the interior.

    is there a category for teeny tiny things?

      I love teeny treasures! Do I see lettering on the zipper slide? It’s probably just the name of the zipper manufacturer though.

      Perhaps Maniken will see this and comment. Small as it is and great condition it could have been made as attire for a doll.

      How cool. I share the same love for tiny things as Watchsearcher.

      It shows a B on the little monogram tag, I think it was added but the material is so close to the purse it really makes the item. Great find.

      Thanks Watchsearcher, fhrgr2, and RichmondLori! The tag has the B on it, and it's embroidered inside too.

      The placement of the embroidered B makes me think the container once held some tiny object requiring the B to be placed in that position to be seen.....but what??

      I’m also thinking along the same line as may be an accessory for a doll.
