Say bye bye to fashion boredom when you step out with our authentic vintage baby alligator bag from Cuba.
This handbag was retired by the previous owner, but it still has some good years left and is looking for a new home.
Baby alligator handbags were sold to tourists in Cuba during the 1940s-1950s. This one came from an estate sale and once belonged to a woman who traveled the world. And although this type of bag may not be sold today, it is a piece of Caribbean history that cannot be replicated.
