I had a very fruitful weekend of thrifting. I snagged some great items for a great deal. My most favorite new purse is this vintage eel skin purse I picked up for less than three bucks. I was with my good buddy Jimmy when I picked this purse up and started examining it. He had a good eye and knew right away that it was eel skin, and I was hooked. I was on a good deal high (you get those, right?) when I showed my purse to my friend Allison when I started wondering if it was wrong to own genuine animal skin. I cracked up when she said "Who cares? What good are eels anyway?"

I'd never seek out animal skin, but I'm okay with buying it thrifted or vintage. What is your opinion on animal skin?
