What makes it great is the little bamboo feet.

Where did you find it, Humuhumu?

That's what's really weird -- I found it in a little frame shop right down the street from my apartment. I was grabbing a sandwich before heading down to Portland for the opening of Castaway Cove, when I walk right past, and my bamboodar goes off. There it was, sitting in the shop window. $36. On my roadtrip, I picked up a cute little handbag with bamboo handles, but a purse made totally out of bamboo trumps it bigtime.

Re: carving -- that's a great idea! I may buy a second one to have someone carve. Does bamboo carve very well, though? I would think that the grain would make it just splinter. If nothing else, maybe I can stain a tiki design in a darker color.

Huma once it has dried and cured, it is very difficult to carve but Can be done with Power tools.Nothing very deep or creative, just an outline shape of a tiki.
It is Really a nice purse and I don't see anything wrong with a classy paintjob such as Sam Gambino could do with pinstripes.

Yeah, that purse definitely does not suck. Very very very cool. My better half RocknRollGirl will be green with envy if she sees this post! I don't suppose there's any chance you could disclose the location where you purchased that little treasure?
