I STILL HAVE MY DAVEY'S BAG!!!! I've had it since middle school so that would make it approx. 24/25 years old. It's a plaid one with a little bit of wear on the bottom but other than that, it's still in great condition. I had a olive green nylon one but it finally bit the dust =(

I felt so lucky to have a Daveys purse. I graduated from HS in 1971. The one I had was marron leather with wood and metal handle. I too, have search to find one.

I loved these bags never had one until I found a super cool grey suede purse on ebay from the 70's with a turn lock clapse in the front and an adjustable strap, not like the 80's bags but totally awesome. Had no idea it was a davey's bag until I looked inside and saw the label. It expands a bit like an accordian style bag and holds a ton, I love it and it is so well made.

When I was young, I got a few Davey's bags. Sadly, they're I don't know where. But I visited the store in 1999 and the owner sold me a few for a low price. He was not selling actively but had stock left. Sadly again, he died tragically in a car accident in late 1999. He was a good and kind man. The company was named after his wife, Davida, who has since died. Since then, I have found a few Davey's handbags online. More than anything else, they comfort my nostalgia and remind me of the happy times from my childhood.

I had a Davey's bag in late 60's or very early 70. It was red, whit and blue suede. The blue overlapped with a toggle that made it look like a flag! I loved that purse. Wish I could at least find a picture of it.

I have photos posted on my store's facebook page Then Again Classic Fashions. It has a navy handle & band around top and the body is a red bandanna print. This purse was never used. it still has the postcard to send in to get your initials for the metal plate and price tag from Saks. Let me know if you're interested.

I had one I got in 8th grade and carried it all my high school years. I graduate in 94 and my plaid Davey's has been the best purse I have ever had and I would love to have another but I can't find one.

I worked at Davey's factory in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1980 and 1981, during the summer, on the folding machine. We were right next to the gluing machione, and it was hot! The big customer, if I remember correctly, was Shop for Pappagallo. There was a European designer who did the designs. I'm surprised it's out of business, the handbags were popular. They were all leather.

I wish I had the plaid handbag I bought in Carmel,California many years ago. I got rid of it after it got a bit dirty. I sure wish I still had it. I noticed Davey's bags are sold now. They aren't the same.
