“A hidden gem”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

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 garden and a small museum on several acres.
The museum has about 500 pieces of her work, exhibiting many of the animal shaped handbags she is famous for. The grounds are beautiful also.
It is definitely worth visiting.

“Surprise find”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

In east hampton, viewing the Lieber collection of handbags is an unexpected treat. A must see for anyone knowledgeable about fashion. Currently showing retrospective of Judith Lieber collection of these famous small bags. These bags are each like art pieces. President's wives and celebrities, and famous wealthy women have all prized their Judith Lieber bags.

Museum is set in lovely landscaped grounds.

Leave the guys at home and visit. Check online for limited days to visit.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

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 are gardens with outdoor sculpture to enjoy.
