Bags and Purses Museum Shop

Who says that museum shops are boring? Bags and Purses Museum Shop is a temptation that cannot be ignored – a temptation for every handbag fanatic. It is almost impossible to resist buying a clutch, shoulder bag or laptop bag. And if you really don’t need a new handbag, buy a calender with a page a day showing the most desirable handbags

Museum Shop

The Bag and Purses Museum Shop brims with bags – all sorts, all colours, all sizes and all prices. If you are the creative type buy a 1963 model carton bag and decorate it to your heart’s desire. The result is a unique, very affordable and personal handbag. One of the best Amsterdam souvenirs is a bag inspired by the shape and colours of a tulip.


Not Only Bags

It’s not just bags in the Museum shop. The purse jewelry holder is cute and great for holding rings, bracelets and necklaces and … very affordable. Brush up your knowledge about handbags in the Handbags Book. It describes and shows in 900 photos everything you have always wanted to know about bags. And there is more, much more; cosmetic bags, shoppers, spectacle cases, purses and lots more wannahaves.
