Handbags or Pocketbooks

When I write to you all, I like to use the words that you can relate to.
Now mind you, I am from Massachusetts and have my own accent. I say Woosta for Worcester, pockabook for pocketbooks and I don't say "I am going out to buy a handbag" but I say "I have to have that pockabook ".

Square boxy pockabooks are out now. I find them all of the time in second hand shops. I was a teen in the 70's and would never have been caught dead carrying a square boxy pockabook with a chain handle and now I do and I am 50 (almost an old lady). Go figure how styles change.

Hobo pockabooks are in too and those are from the hippie days of the 60's and 70's.

Now that you have had your history lesson in "handbags":)
