bag #20 – taken

IMG_6526IMG_6528IMG_6529IMG_6530

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 50favbags@gmail.com 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 50favbags@gmail.com 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 #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 50favbags@gmail.com 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 50favbags@gmail.com; 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 50favbags@gmail.com if you’re interested.

bag #13 – taken, i think

There wasn’t much going on at the St. Vincent de Paul, and then, I saw it. If ever a purse could remind me of my husband, this is it. He’s a total prep. New England prep. So I couldn’t resist the classic Lauren shoulder bag. Brown leather trim, clean inside, it’s like a bag made from a tie or pocket square. This bag will go with those riding boots and loafers! Brown with black and red herringbone checks. Email me at 50favbags@gmailcom if you like it.

I have quite a few bags left; they must go. Free to a good home: bags 4, 9, 10, 11. Scroll down and see if anything looks good to you. Peace.

bag #12 – taken

Tignanello again – this time a black pebbled leather shoulder bag. This is a beautiful bag with a front pocket, interior zipper pocket, and an adjustable strap. Silver details and feet (those things on the bottom of the bag that make it cooler) add a cool, modern touch. I got this one at the Este St. Vincent de Paul, and it was more than i would pay usually – but it was half off, so $10. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag #12 if you’re interested in this beauty. Taken by my bestest friend – thanks!
