This coin purse is reminiscent of the one my grandmother owned when I was a little girl. It was really her everything purse. Coins, dollar bills, nail clippers, lip balm, and even a few bobby pins were always the contents. I used to love opening and closing it, over and over again because of the way the Kiss Clasp sounded when snapping shut.
Later in her elder years she went into a nursing home. She was so upset because other residents would come in her room (mistakenly) and take her Bingo quarters that she kept in her night stand. I knew exactly what she needed- a coin purse to keep in her dress pocket. I went out and found a beautiful, purple Kiss Clasp coin purse for her to keep those quarters safe. She was so tickled with it!
These purses are so handy, and I still love the way the clasp sounds when closing them.
