bag #20 – taken


When I see a Tignanello in the store, looking all new and fabulous, I want to rescue it. That’s what happened in the case of this bag, perfect for someone who doesn’t want to change bags often. It’s got the zipper pouch with card slots and lots of other pockets. The long, adjustable strap means it can go shoulder or cross body. It’s a little smaller than I usually use, so if it’s for you, email me at with bag #20.

bag #19

Here’s a bag I’ve had for at least 20 or so years. I got it at TJ Maxx when Nia was a baby and was my #1 shopping partner. David was in grad school, we had just left Ann Arbor (still crying inside), and we lived with my parents for 14 months. Needless to say I hung out in the streets with Nia a lot!

I have enjoyed this simple bag; its strap is long enough to be a cross body for me, so you know it will be one for you. Beautiful dark brown leather, square, about the size of a big square iPad. Email me at if you’re interested.

Check out what’s left by viewing the post titles – if it doesn’t say taken it’s still available.

Waiting for your bag from me? I’ve had a busy time of late – I’ll make deliveries on Sunday.

bag #18 – taken

Here’s a lightweight cross body with lots of organization. Great for traveling or if you want graduate from a diaper bag but like the diaper bag vibe. I couldn’t leave it at the Este st. Vincent de Paul – purse rescue! Email me at if you like this one.

bag #17 – taken

My dear friend Katheryn gave me this cute brown Gianni Bini last year. She took a chance because it’s small but too cute to resist and the price was right – half off $5. She’s glad for me to pass it on to you, because she is a sweet and kind person. Email me at if you’re feeling bag #17.

bag #16


IMG_6343This is a bag that i have started to give away and then held back, because i really like it. But, it’s too heavy for this old girl and her neck strain. Lucky Brand fabulous tote with adjustable strap found at Goodwill in Mt. Washington. Let’s make this quick – email me at with bag #16 and your contact info. Sniff sniff

bag #15 – taken


Confession time… i’m uninspired with my bag giveaway. There doesn’t seem to be the same excitement as last year. Don’t ask me why i think a Lenten discipline should be exciting – but i’m just saying. A few days in a row with no one wanting the bags i was posting took the air out of my balloon. (What am i talking about? I don’t have a balloon. I should say what i really mean.) OK it made me sad. But – that’s part of life; and i’m pushing past those feelings because i have lots more great bags to give away, and those that don’t get claimed will go to good homes.

Here’s an original Harvey’s seatbelt bag. I gave away a black one last year, and kept this one but have not used it once since… i have no clue. So it’s yours for the asking at; include bag #15 in your email, and include your address. Peace!


bag #14 – taken


img_6269I saw this purple shoulder bag at Valley Thrift and thought, no. No meant yes, and here we are. I couldn’t leave the purple purse in the store, Lent would be here eventually. Plus, Nia’s favorite color might still be purple. (that’s my 20yo daughter.) What can I tell you – when i put it against the rest of my collection, it had to go. My loss is your gain when it comes to purple bags. Email me at if you’re interested.
