Here’s what makes this year different from the others: I’m having to get rid of bags that I really, really like. Grudgingly modeled by my lovely daughter Kaia, here’s a Banana Republic hobo that I found at the Mt. Washington Goodwill, back when they had many more good name-brand bags. Whipstitching helps it maintain a casual look, but the thick leather is super classy. No, I’m not tearing up. Email me at email@example.com if this bag speaks to you like it spoke to me.
