Enid Collins handbags on display Rebbeca and Me Rebbeca Norton's Collection 85 Years of Collecting Textiles - Witte Museum

The Witte Museum in San Antonio, TX is displaying a small collection of Enid Collins handbags in its permanent textiles collection. You can see the bags when you visit the Opening the Witte Wardrobe: 85 Years of Collecting Textiles exhibit in the Betty Coates Textile Gallery. When my wife, son and I visited there were three box bags: roadrunner, money tree, and love and one canvas tote: jewel bokay. The exhibit runs until March 25, 2012.

We also had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca Norton who brought a portion of her personal collection of 75 Enid Collins handbags to show during a special one-day event featuring collectors and their collections.

I look forward to returning when our son, Jeep, is older and we can tell him about his great grandmother, Mimi, who made the beautiful handbags.
