over the weekend at the melrose flea market, my roommate philippa stumbled upon this awesomely freaky armadillo purse. at first glance i thought it was a football, but after closer inspection we both realized that it was in fact a real armadillo at one point. the man who was selling it tried to tell us it was a real alligator… we politely corrected him.
to show you what it looks like i put the armadillo purse in it’s natural habitat… our front lawn. they are most commonly found in texas but finding one at the melrose flea market was quite a surprise. i told her it was a once in a lifetime kind of purchase, so she bought it.
there’s even a mirror in the inside! all i wish is that i knew the woman who owned this purse before her… and all i can say is that i hope it died peacefully on a ranch somewhere in texas before it was turned into a purse. amen.
