80s Nylon Duffel Purses

Does anyone else remember these purses/bags?
This is very early 80's!
I remember EVERYONE carrying one of these around.
Some people put "feather clips" on theirs.
I don't think anyone knew their real use.  I certainly didn't.
Most of these bags were in girly colors like white, light pink, lavender, and aqua blue.
Mine was bright aqua blue with rainbow straps.
Kind of like this one, except in aqua blue and probably smaller.
I got it at a mall store called, Earthcraft.
Does anyone remember that?
I loved that store.
Not sure if it was nationwide or just a Southwestern US chain.

  1. I had a purple duffle with white rainbow stencil and rainbow straps. My best friend had a white with colored stencil. We loved how there was a mini duffle with the same unicorn motif stenciled on it attached with a keyring. They fell apart quickly as I recall. Perhaps that is why they are so hard to find :)

    1. Yes, that must have been why I don't still have my rainbow strapped one... either that or my sister threw it away like she did everything else I had! (:-o I wish they'd bring them back as fun summer bags!

  3. Mine was lavender with a full unicorn (not just the head), and it had a mini barrel change purse attached to it. I have been searching (uselessly, I might add), for one on ebay for years. Someday I will find another one!!!
