So I went on a family vacation back in 2007 where I saw these awesome handmade purses from recycled skateboards made by Beck(y). The clutches were my favorite, but as a freshman in college I couldn’t afford to spring for a purse at the time. On return from the beach I found a ten buck board from wal mart. I had an old clutch from prom that I knew would work perfectly! Unfortunately, I went off to college and forgot about the project back in my parents home. This past weekend – under mother’s request to remove my final items from their house – I found the skateboard under my bed. I ran downstairs & chopped apart the board! Some epoxy and heavy books did the trick and I finally have my own homemade skateboard purse.
