A note from the owner of Green Gator:  The idea for Green Gator grew from a love of several things, antiques in general and purses and luggage made from crocodile and alligator and all things reptile.  It is a passion that Joni and I have always shared.  Crocodile and alligator items almost always are high quality and never go out of style.

The forms of the bags change somewhat with fashion, but conserving and preserving them just seems like the right thing to do, just as you would a great piece of period furniture and everything old is almost always new again at some point.  If they are cared for, as many were because they were very expensive to purchase, they will truly last for generations.  Some of the bags in this current collection are almost one hundred years old and still beautiful.  The vast majority are at least fifty years old.  Can you imagine if these bags could talk?  They’ve been everywhere!  If you own one, you can truly say “it was grandmothers”… may not have been your grandmother’s, but it was someone’s.  I think it is recycling at its best!
