Collecting Vintage Poodle Collectibles: 1950s Plastic Poodle Cosmetic Bag

1950s Vintage Clear Plastic Cosmetic Bag With Poodle Graphics on Do Wah Diddy

I'm having a grand time revisiting the 1950s on one of my favorite websites, Do Wah Diddy.
Who remembers plastic cosmetic bags with poodle graphics?

Here is the Do Wah Diddy Description: 

This clear acetate bag is imprinted with “poodle” and “Eiffel” tower graphics. The graphics are enhanced with a few rhinestones (see detail photo). The top of the bag is zippered and the edges trimmed in gold foil. Inside the bag you will find 2 plastic bottles and 2 plastic jars, all with pink plastic tops (all clean with nothing left inside). Everything is in EXCELLENT condition with no tears or smudges, which is common in vintage bags such as this. The acetate is slightly yellowed from age, but this very minor and does not distract from the piece. The bottom of the bag has a light cardboard enforcement (original) and there is a faint blue stain on the bottom about 2-1/2 inches long x 1/4 inches wide (very faint). Fun item. Listed for $25.00.
