New York License Plate Purse

We all know prisoners make license plates, but that’s so yesterday. I like to think this license plate purse could’ve been made by a prisoner in touch with his feminine side– a creative con who’s into haute couture. Actually, the purse was made by a company called Littlearth that recycles real used license plates into women’s handbags. The purse measures 6″ x 6″ x 3″ and has a hinged lid, a plush black lining and a snap fastener adorned with a real bottle cap (this one is for “artificially flavored punch soda.”) I found this at a garage sale and unfortunately it’s missing its shoulder strap.

    I honestly cant say I would love to have this! hehe but, it is a novel idea of what to do with all these old plates hanging around the landfills.That gives me an idea for a redneck flower box!
