|*ViVa Pinup Clutch Handbag*
A few years back my sister and I had a small company called ViVa Pinup Handbags, Inc. Vi
(Vickie) & Va (Valarie). We went into the business because of our love of vintage pinup and
Elvgren in particular. We licensed numerous images through Brown & Bigelow for use on our
handbag line. We enjoyed a modest success selling through a sales rep in the California
Accessories Market and our eBay store. The images we licensed were: 1) Weighty Issue 2)
Odds-on-Favorite 3) Bear Facts 4) Earl Moran's "Spanish Girl (w/ Marilyn Monroe) 5) Popular
Number 6) Polished Performance 7) Lucky Chaps and 8) Aiming to Please. See examples below.
Handbags no longer available but considered highly collectible.
I am now working with pinup artist Gerald “Baron” von Lind on a line of exclusive Zippo lighters
and Casino-grade Poker Chips. Other products are in the development stages so I will keep you
posted as they become available.
