Who would have thought of combining something as tough and metallic as a state license plate tag with a fashion accessory like a woman’s purse?  Actually, a few companies, including notably Little Earth, have recognized the art and created license plate purses.

We’re guys so we’re not purse experts, but we do spend a lot of time thinking about license plates and license plate accessories.  To be honest, the purses made from license plates that we’ve seen are actually nice looking.

And they’re not cheap as purses go.  Perhaps designer purses are expensive by comparison, but for every day license plate purses are a little on the pricey side.

So how do you choose license plate purses?  First of all, what kind of fashion statement are you trying to make?  Which plate will you choose and why?  The way we see it, you might want two license plate purses; one for the state you live in, and one for the state you used to live in or went to college in.

What about colorful state license plates?  That’s right; there are actually some pretty nice license plates out there with what could only be called artwork on them.  You might decide to choose one of the prettier license plates to grace your purse.

Just like state license plates can have meaning demonstrating your support for important causes you might choose a license plate purse because you support that particular cause.  A little more on the shallow side, maybe you just like a license plate because the colors match your wardrobe or shoes.




Maybe you’re trying to impress your boyfriend by choosing his alma mater’s state license plate or perhaps you want to remember a family member’s military service.

There is no doubt that license plate purses make a statement whether you’re trying or not.  They will get your attention just because of their uniqueness.  After all, when was the last time you saw a license plate purse being carried down the street or even on TV?  We would wager never.

So we decided to compile a list of our favorite plates.  Forgive us for putting Virginia and Pennsylvania in the list to honor our home state and the state of The Pennsylvania State University.  Take a look and see if any of these might be on your wish list of fashion accessories!
