Next time you’re standing in line at the checkout getting ready to pay for your Pop Tarts and Red Bull, why not pony up your pennies in retro-geek style.

These handmade 3.5-inch floppy coin purses by BraveMoonman (she also makes some awesome felt calculator watches) are perfect for keeping your spare change from rattling around your bag. All the while, they say in no uncertain terms that you had your first computer before the snot-nosed punk clerk behind the counter was an embryo.

Each one is handsewn from colorful felt, and is the same size as a real floppy. They’re available in a variety of fruity colors that I don’t recall ever having graced the slot of my old Mac IIci’s 3.5-inch drive.

You can get your hands on one over at BraveMoonman’s Etsy shop for $18 (USD). Ah, remember when computers were beige? Take that young whippersnappers!
