8.5" x 6" Linen/cotton vintage style FL Cigar label/postcard cosmetic bag
Made in Florida.
The Tampa Life… Let’s be honest, it’s in the center of it all for Florida, right? Just look at those people having fun: golf, tennis, boating, picnics by the bay, frolicking in the gulf, strolling along without a care in the world near the gorgeous Tampa Bay Hotel (now the Univ. of Tampa). In the evening, they have their fine suppers followed by a snifter of brandy and an excellent Cuban cigar rolled right there in Tampa. I know what you’re thinking and yes, even the ladies would sometimes take a puff. Our ladies are not shrinking violets, after all! They have to keep up with our men, you know and Tampa IS where the first commercial flight took place. It’s a city on the move!
Collecting cigar labels is great fun and the artwork is beautiful. Art commissions often cost thousands of dollars back in the late 1800's and were a major investment for the cigar companies. History, politics, Cubans and Tampa... Ah, there are some stories to tell... And we mustn't forget Miami, or the Keys, or Jacksonville, or... Well, that's all fading away now so we are setting the image to our cosmetic bags digitally printed on a linen/cotton blend fabric. The bag is lined in a polyester satin. Hand wash gentle. No phosphate. Made in Florida.
