day 43

This Avorio hobo made in Italy was hanging at the Mt. Washington goodwill for $8. I almost injured myself snatching it from the rack. Those days are long gone, un/fortunately. Here’s more about it. Pebbled leather, neutral color, adjustble strap – and a black hole.

This year is a little more… at home. Yeah, that’s my foot and one of my New Balance lightweight runners. The goal here is to get a photo each day and sometimes that photo is more real than I’d like, but that’s ok – welcome to my life.

day 14

At my friend New John’s house with my Avorio bag made in Italy. This is a cushy pebbled leather bag.

The elephants are so cute. Got this at the Mt. Washington goodwill a few years ago in the good old days.

days 40-49

It’s the final countdown. Honestly I was so far from the blog, for a variety of reasons. I completely lost count. Fortunately, i was going though the process in every other way, taking pictures of the different bags each day. Even though i knew Pentecost was close, i still thought i had another week after this. So there’s lots of great bags that i planned to use but won’t make it this year. Cool!

okay, today was better. this morning i had a hard time choosing a bag, so i grabbed two and decided to choose one before i got to work. it wasn’t hard to select this avorio italian leather hobo in beige pebbled leather. not a shock by now, right? this was another fun find at my favorite goodwill. i saw it hanging on the rack while browsing the girls’ clothing rack. as i walked across the store (dashed, really) i hoped my eyes weren’t deceiving me. my sense of touch confirmed – soft, supple, italian leather. i looked inside and the tag confirmed it! $12! i calmly placed it on my arm and did my best to contain my excitement. score!

once home, i did my favorite thing after a good thrift trip – got online and researched the bag. you can find avorio bags on ebay and similar sites for anywhere between $20 and $170.

this bag is another cavernous black hole if you don’t utilize the three sections effectively. this purse is like a magic trick; i tell you there’s a secret compartment that always seems to swallow my keys. but the bag overall is beautiful to touch and goes with everything. it’s a keeper.
