Once I began looking ,it became mesmerizing. There were purses that were designed for people the likes of Jackie O. There were two floors of displays. Later, when... More

If you have a spare hour, make sure to stop by this delightful "museum" of Judith Leiber's purses. She's delighted us for years with her whimsical takes on how purses should look in the evening. We "ooooed and ahhhhed" and each of us walked out dreaming of owning our own Judith Leiber work of art.

A friend told us of this collection so we hunted for it and it was definitely worth a visit and worth the detour off the main roads. What woman would not want to see such a fantastic collection of handbags - they were all works of art! The garden also looked fabulous and worth a good look around but it... More

We found this place by accident. It is located on Old Stone Highway on the border of Springs and Amagansett. Sometimes there is a little sign placed along side the driveway just saying "Leiber Collection". One day we turned into the driveway and were very pleasantly surprised. Judith Lieber, and her husband artist Gerson Lieber, have a home, a sculpture... More

This is a small museum devoted primarily to Judith Leiber's AMAZING handbag designs. Each is a little work of art, many in novel shapes. The day we went, Mr. & Mrs. Leiber were present to answer any questions. I highly recommend to anyone interested in fashion, crafts, or sculpture. The museum is on the premises of their home and there... More
