bag 39

The last black vintage Fossil of Joy’s and mine is up for grabs today, which seems completely appropriate for Good Friday. Supper pocket on outer flap, and zipper pocket under the flap on the front of bag. Slip pocket on the back. Zippered divided interior with a zipper pocket on the back wall. With three sections inside it’s easy to stay organized. The strap is adjustable which is why the strap is sticking out – we were playing with the length, and Joy usually had it on the longest length for the crossbody effect.

I really wondered about giving this up, but decided to do so if someone else can use it. Full disclosure: it smells faintly of old school powder. Some of you know what i mean!

If you like this vintage Fossil. email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with your name, your address, and bag 39. Check out the available bags to see if there’s anything you’d like to claim. Remaining bags will be donated. Peace.

bag 37

I bought this Fossil at the St. Vincent dePaul near me. Why would i buy ANOTHER black Fossil? My favorite black bag that looks a little like this is wearing out. When i saw this one, i thought ok, I’ll keep this for when that one gives out. What was I thinking?

This bag has a gusseted pocket with a zipper pocket above it on front, zipper pocket on back, two slip pockets inside, one great for a phone, and an interior zip pocket. Adjustable strap complete with the Fossil key and a lock fob. The more I describe it the more I like it. Plus, grommets.

If you like bag 36, email me with your name, your address, and bag 36 in the subject line. Three bags to go. Peace.

Enjoy this cute baggallini crossbody. Two zipper pockets on front, one on back, card slots, pen loops, and another zipper pocket inside. Small and mighty. Adjustable strap. Awesome for travel.

bag 21 – taken

from last year:

Today’s bag is by Zina Eva, a designer I’d never heard of before I googled them to find out about this bag. They are expensive, and have mixed reviews. But nonetheless, I am happy with this bag at the price point of $8. What can I say, I’m a sucker for top-handle bags.

What’s cool: wooden handle, triple magnetic closure to make sure your stuff isn’t too heavy to keep it closed, and the beautiful suede lining. What’s not as cool: the exterior doesn’t look as real as it actually is. But, when it’s full of stuff it has a nice rounded shape on the bottom with the structured top – I think it looks classy. THere’s also a detachable shoulder strap – not long enough to crossbody for me. Overall, it’s pretty. Who knows, could end up in the giveaway someday.

Someday is today. If you like bag 21, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with your name, address, and bag 21. Peace.

Here’s another offering from my vast Fossil collection. Can’t remember if this was Joy’s or if i got it at the thrift store – probably with Joy. We did a lot of thrifting together. This crossbody has a back zipper pocket with card slots and room for tissues and masks. The front pocket has magnet closure and slight gussets for keys, unless you have a giant key ring. Lots of room inside for wallet and other essentials. Brassy/gold- toned hardware.

Here’s a big pebbled leather black tote bag by Margot. Got this new at TJ Maxx years ago. It’s a giant black hole, but it’s very pretty. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 17 and include your name and address.

bag 16

Jaiya chose this from the pile so since i missed yesterday here’s me getting caught up. I can’t remember where I got this bag. I want to say Pier 1. But I can’t be sure. Anyway it’s a cute crossbody from the 1990s. If the boho or eclectic look is your thing, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 16, your name, your address.

I got my first vaccine shot yesterday and my arm got more sore as the day went on. Typing this now gives a little well-worth it twinge. Peace.

bag 12 – taken

Vintage Fossil satchel with plenty of space inside. This is one of my dear friend Joy’s bags that introduced me to the Fossil brand. Complete with contrast stitching and the classic key. If you’re interested in this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 12, your name, and your address. Peace.

bag 10

Reading old posts about why I’m keeping a bag always makes me feel a type of a way when I’m getting rid of it. I’m talking myself out of letting it go with my own words from the past. That’s why this year’s posts are so much shorter. These really are the bags I said I’d never get rid of.

Here’s a Perlina i got years ago at the thrift store. Read more about it here in this post from 2013, the first year i started the blog. It’s a great bag and I’ve enjoyed using it. It’s got feet, one big section in the middle and two zippered sections on either side.

If you like bag 10, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 10, your name, and your address.

One more thing. This is not a scam. This is my Lenten practice. I reserve the right to block you in my email if you harass me about getting a bag. Naturally, this comment is based on folks saying they think I’m a scam and harassing me in my email.

Peace.
