Ok I had to take advantage of these photos from 2013 to explain why I love baggallini so much:

  1. they don’t use capital letters in their logo – LOVE
  2. the ergonomic zippers – LOVE
  3. RFID
  4. small but hold a bunch of stuff because there’s a place for everything or it’s magic
  5. perfect size to throw into a larger tote or backpack when you’re traveling or commuting or have a diaper bag or something
  6. crossbody straps that cross MY body which means they’ll probably cross yours
  7. so well made, you can find it at the thrift store looking brand new or $4-$10 because they can’t tell the difference between this and Thirty-One or some random off brand
  8. you can also get them at TJ Maxx or Marshalls so if you need it to be new you can still save
  9. travel bags that don’t look super gonza – look it up, but the word defines itself

Love you, baggallini.

You know how i feel about baggallini. I love this line of bags. The zipper pulls alone make them worthy of my love. My parents were going to name me Elaine for my middle name – but if they were going to name me something starting with E it should be ergonomic. Anyway, this bag is called the everywhere bag, albeit an older model. The new versions cost $99!!! Yeah, I’m good with my thrift store version. These bags are perfect for travel, and here’s why.

The bag has small pockets on the front the perfect size of a phone and lots of zipper pockets inside and out. On the back there’s a pocket that closes with a magnet, but you can unzip the bottom to slide it over your suitcase. The strap adjusts to go from shoulder bag to crossbody. I took this on our trip to Spain in March and it was the only purse I took with me. I like the color a lot and it went with everything. Wait, I think I might have taken one other bag – a smaller black baggallini crossbody!!

Still on my backpack quest, so now I’m going to start making comparison and review videos. Yes. I’m there. So this photo is on top of the Solo NY Parker women’s backpack that I’m going to review/compare to the Sherpani Soleil convertible backpack.

day 25 – the halfway point

Cheers to another good baggallini. I took this one to the Episcopal Communicators conference in Denver last year, which would have been in Savannah last week. I’m telling you, baggallini is my favorite travel bag line as far as nylon bags go. They are so cute and functional, with excellent security and RFID protections in their new bags. If you get one at the thrift store, check to see if the RFID tag is in there. Many of the bags come with a detachable wristlet which is RFID so you can hook it to your keys or put it in your pocket and keep it light. Another thing i love about them is that baggallini does not start with a capital b. I have a thing against capital letters. I don’t capitalize my name if i can avoid it, or I but spellcheck will do it or me. Sometimes i don’t feel like fixing it.

Anyway, I got this one at the St. Vincent de Paul, i think. But if you want a newer one, find them at TJ Maxx or other discount stores or online shops like 6pm.com. Much respect to TJ for still having their website closed.

Baggallini is one of my favorite thrift store brands to search for – after Fossil, of course. All of the baggallini’s i have came from Goodwill or St. Vincent de Paul, so while i could recognize the quality, i had no idea of their worth until i visited the baggallini site for some random reason I can’t remember lately. Those bags are expensive!! I see them at TJ Maxx for $19.99-$34.99+ and I’m like yeah, I’m good finding them at the thrift store. This bag you see here would be around $45-$50!! Seriously, check it out for yourself. Of course stuff is on sale now for Mother’s day, but DAAAAGGGGG. Found one on Poshmark for $50! What! I paid $4.

This bag is so cute with the little built in handle and detachable crossbody strap. It’s great for putting into a bigger bag but it barely fits my wallet let alone anything else. I do have a travel wallet that fits in there by guess who – yeah Fossil, that i got at Goodwill for $3 and then I can fit lip stuff and keys. The style and the color keep this bagg – as they like to spell it – in my collection.

bag 6 – claimed

Always bet on baggallini. I love this brand. When I see it in the thrift store in good condition, I grab it because I know someone will be blessed by it. This khaki-colored crossbody has an adjustable strap to double as a shoulder bag. This one is very roomy with two snap closure pockets in front and two pockets on the back. Lined in red, so don’t open it at Target or folks will ask you where the bike locks are located. Found this one at St. Vincent de Paul on Este for $8. Find them for a reasonable price in all sizes at TJ Maxx for $20 for a small bag and on up.

day 13

Glad to be home from an amazing time at the Episcopal Communicators conference. Here’s why I could give away some baggallini bags this year – I have some good ones still in the family. This black crossbody with a detachable adjustable strap, three exterior pockets, and room for essentials. Fits nicely in my backpack and keeps the load light.

I didn’t get out much but I did see this:

bag 24 – claimed

Brown baggallini tote with more pockets and pouches than ever. It’s an explosion of organization. One large zipper pouch chills between two large outer snap-closure sections. No exterior pockets but you have plenty inside. Great for a weekend trip or daily life. This was a goodwill rescue at $5 $4.50 with my Senior discount.

day 18

When I looked back to see if I had a post for every day, I noticed there’s no day 18. All I can say is I realize how I forgot to do this post. Baggallini crossbody convertible coral bag. Great for travel, not so great when hiking.

day 21

baggalini gold

I have a few baggallini bags because they’re lightweight, well-made and often found at thrift stores. This one is a cute crossbody in gold that I’ve had for around five or six years. baggallini bags are great for travel and can be found in lots of different styles and colors at TJ Maxx. But why pay $15-$40 when you can find them at the thrift store for $4-$10?

 

bag 26 – claimed

This baggalini crossbody is cute but a bit too small. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 26.
