A few years back my sister and I had a small company called ViVa Pinup Handbags, Inc. Vi (Vickie) & Va (Valarie). We went into the business because of our love of vintage pinup and Elvgren in particular. We licensed numerous images through Brown & Bigelowfor use on our handbag line. We enjoyed a modest success selling through a sales rep in the California Accessories Market and our eBay store.
The images we licensed were: 1) Weighty Issue 2) Odds-on-Favorite 3) Bear Facts 4) Earl Moran's "Spanish Girl (w/ Marilyn Monroe) 5) Popular Number 6)Polished Performance 7) Lucky Chaps and 8) Aiming to Please. See examples below. Handbags no longer available but considered highly collectible.
