Thrifted African Print Purses first surfaced on Chictopia's streetstyle gallery in Spring 2009 seen on Brooklyn blogger Ringo. She wore her thrifted african print purse with a white thrifted belt, silver Lux via Beacon's Closet striped dress, and beige vintage from Beacon's Closet jacket. Since then, Thrifted African Print Purses have grown in popularity as bloggers from Brooklyn have discovered them. Thrifted African Print Purses are generally seen in springtime style. Popular types of Thrifted Purses are cross body, satchel, vintage, velvet, and clutch.
