I've had these two beaded purses/bags for ages. I was going to take them apart for the beads.
Then I searched for the beaded purse, and WOW, the prices are super high.
But these bags are pretty damaged. Holes, rotted cord, rusted metal & rusted metal beads.
I think the small bag is so damaged, I feel okay taking it apart for the beads.
But I'm on the fence about the beaded purse. (Three holes.) Prices for "like new" listings range from just under $100 to $350+
I think all the beads are there, but I don't know if it's worth selling or not? Is it too selfish fo me to just take it apart??
I'd appreciate any feedback/thoughts from the bead experts here.
