    My friend carried one on her wedding day. I think they’re adorable.

    I think it’s a great idea because it’s totally different.

    In My Humble Opinion – even though I always have a purse on my arm and I loved the Nancy Drew series as a kid (I had just about all of them, including some old ones that were my grandma’s and my mom’s), this isn’t a gift I would really enjoy receiving.  Despite always using purses and loving Nancy Drew, the purse itself just isn’t my style and it’s something I would never carry.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is that you shouldn’t judge the usefullness of this gift on someone’s enjoyment of reading (either Nancy Drew or not) or their enjoyment of purses.  You really need to consider whether this purse is a style that all of your BMs would enjoy.  If it is, great – I’m sure they’ll love it.  But you really need to consider if it is a style that they like if you want them to be able to use it.

    I voted NO – I think it’s cute and I TOTALLY loved Nancy Drew when I was young. But I just don’t see where I’d use it. If your Bridesmaid or Best Man are the type to carry unique things then definitely go for it but they’re not into the quirky then it’ll be a waste of your money to get them something they won’t use.

    It’s cute and I would totally use it. The only thing is it is tiny so you can’t hold much of anything in it, which defeats the purpose of a purse. My sister (who is my MOH) would find it cute since she’s a bookworm and, like me, also loved Nancy Drew as a kid. But she would not be able to actually use it as it is too small for her too and the stuff she needs to carry.
