Quirky handbags are a great way to add interest to any outfit, and they’re certainly wonderful conversation starters! It’s no secret I’m a big fan of quirky handbags, the majority of my outfit posts feature some weird bag or another. So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the ones I’m drooling over right now! (I also have an updated list featuring 10 cute novelty handbags up on my blog, here.)
Admittedly, this title might be a bit too bold of a statement. I’m sure there might be some even more quirky handbags out there at the moment than the ones I have listed. But a title that says “20 of the Quirkiest Handbags Online that Lindsey of Have Clothes, Will Travel Really Wants to Buy Right Now” just didn’t sound as good. Haha. But please enjoy my quirky handbag selections, below. And let me know which ones you’re craving in the comments! (Or if there’s one I missed!)
I apologize – many of these handbags are no longer in stock, as this post was written in 2017. For an updated 2020 quirky handbag list, click here.

1.) WORKING Phone Purse
I know, I know, I’ve mentioned this Betsey Johnson phone purse multiple times already. However, I’ve still yet to buy it. I think it’s awesome the phone actually works…you just plug it into your cell phone. Love it!

2.) Handbags Made Out of LEGOS
One of my friends had tagged me in this video on Facebook of how these handbags are made, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking of them since! I mean, who didn’t love LEGO bricks growing up? I am in love with the idea of having a handbag made out of them. (You can even request custom orders – maybe something Star Wars themed or my initials?!)

3.) Taco Truck!
It’s a freaking taco truck as a handbag. Can it get any better? (Only if it came with actual tacos.)

4.) Hot Sauce Packet
Sticking with the Kate Spade’s taco theme, I also had to include this hot sauce packet purse. I’ve honestly been having dreams about hot sauce and spicy food in general lately. (These things are nonexistent in Argentina – no spicy food here, folks!) So, I’ve come to the conclusion I really would like to show off this love of all things spice with a quirky as heck purse! Isn’t it fabulous?

5.) Mary Frances Handbags
Once I started looking at Mary Frances handbags, I was tempted to just do this whole post featuring only them! The details and beading are exquisite! There are actually 3 handbags featured in the widget above if you flip through you’ll see an aquarium handbag and the most beautiful daisy and bee handbag too. They’re amazing.

6.) Coffee Cup
The only thing I like more than spicy food is coffee. So, of course, I want this coffee cup handbag! It’s quite affordable too.

7.) Mushroom Handbag
I can’t explain it, but this little mushroom handbag just speaks to me. “Please, buy me!” 😉

Perfect for any makeup lovers out there! I’m not much of a makeup person, but I do love me some red lipstick! And this bag is less than $20 – not too shabby.

9.) Junk Food
Who doesn’t love junk food? I think I like the French fries handbag the best….but that’s just me.

10.) Pizza Slice!
But the best junk food of all is pizza! I just ordered pizza for the third time since moving to Rosario (from 3 different places), and none of these pizzas came cut in the nice little slices pictured above. They were all just a big pizza! What the heck? If anyone can explain this to me, please do so in the comments. Until then, I’ll be investing in a sharp pizza cutter and possibly this cute purse, haha.

11.) Alien Spaceship
Anything to do with space and aliens is right up my alley! And this would be such a fun bag to wear with my galaxy leggings…

12.) Fish Handbags
There are some really cute little fishy handbags out right now. I really like the second one above (the Betsey Johnson one). So cute!
To balance out the junk food, I should probably feature a fruit handbag too, right? Haha. This pineapple bag is so cute! And it’s only $20.

14.) Penguin Clutch
Yes, my friends, that is indeed a sparkly penguin clutch. You will be the coolest person at the ball with this little guy!

At this point, why NOT carry a handbag that does, in fact, look like a bird cage?

Unicorns are all the rage right now. And I can’t get one of those darn unicorn drinks at the Starbucks in my neighborhood, so, perhaps I’ll content myself with this unicorn bag!

18.) Mixed Tape
I have yet to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, yet. BUT I instantly thought of the first one when I saw this bag, and that makes me all kinds of happy.

19.) Game Controller
My husband fully supports the purchase of this handbag! Not only because it’s in the shape of a video game controller, but because it’s only $20. Haha. (And let’s face it, some of these bags are bit pricey.)

20.) 2D Cheese Handbag
I couldn’t go through this whole post and not once mention Jump From Paper! They look just like clip art in person too, and they’re made remarkably well! My beloved Jump From Paper handbag was my first official quirky handbag that I owned. But, I would love to add this cheesy crossbody one to my collection as well. I mean I am a Cheesehead from Wisconsin and all. 😉
Now, I’m curious, which handbag was your favorite? And are there any quirky handbags you would add to this list? Let me know in the comments!
