My vintage elephant bag
My elephant bag had a little surprise inside that thrilled everyone I showed. I bought this bag on Ebay about fifteen years ago and it came with two political buttons inside from the Barry Goldwater presidential campaign in 1964. That was before I was born, but many people in the crowd at the zoo gala were a bit older and they remembered well and got a real kick out of seeing the pins. The bag was a convention souvenir or accessory that was carried by a Goldwater supporter.
Political pins that came with my bag
I've been thinking of selling this bag in advance of the Republican National Convention this summer and funny enough someone last night offered to buy it from me (not at the zoo gala, but when I met up with some friends afterwards). But I think Donald Trump should buy it for Melania to carry in July.
