But she has a purse. (A clutch purse?) (1969)

You yourself can name three purses she has. The black, the blue patent, the brown satchel. Another purse would be silly.

But a purse to put in her purse?

Like our clutch here. Called Seville. With lots of roomy compartments for the grocery list, the kids’ pictures, the laundry tickets, and her beloved charge plates.

Our clutches come in lots of different colors, lots of different designs. With a wallet, French purse, cigarette case, lighter, Spec-Tainer, and Key-Tainer to match.

Any one of which she can put in the purse she already has.

The Seville clutch. At nice stores everywhere.

  3. That’s why the smart money is going into this new French Purse by Lady Buxton

You put your bills in the billfold… you take them out of the coin purse!

And for the important big bills, there’s a separate secret compartment that keeps them securely hidden. (Shown in Saddle Cowhide)

You have room for them all. (1954)

No more stuffing one picture behind the other. With the Convertible you can carry up to 21 photos or credentials on view in the removable photo-card case. The exclusive Buxton Flickbar does it.

It works as simply as a loose-leaf binder… lets you add windows quickly, securely. The Convertible comes with enough windows to show 9 photos or cards. Extra windows are only a quarter a set.

You don’t have to open it to put coins in. Ingenious “Magic Purse” has outside coin slot that lets you drop money safely inside.
