'Vintage Gal' finds her Dream Compact Bag at Shepton Mallet.

A lover of all things antique and vintage, with a special interest in vintage items from the 1930/40’s, found her dream compact bag at IACF Shepton Mallet.
The vintage compact handbag collector has always dreamt of owning a Kamra-Pak styled bag, Cate explains. The bags were extremely popular in the 1930s-1950s and resembled compact cameras of the time. Unfortunately, most of the Kamra-Pak compacts that are found these days are damaged which has prevented Cate from purchasing one.
Cate says her ‘dream came true’ when she found this ‘stunning, almost mint condition one at the IACF Antique Fairs in Shepton’. She goes on to say that what makes the bag she found so different, is that it’s bigger than the ones you usually find, it’s finished in a beautiful dark green, real suede, rather than enamel and has a handle!
We are so happy that our fairs can help make someone’s dream come true, if you want to experience a day out like no other than visit our upcoming IACF Antique Fair in Ardingly, 8/9th September and if you can’t make that then the West Country’s Premier Event, Shepton Mallet Antiques & Collectors Fair is on the 18th - 20th September 2020!
