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 15

My Banana Republic tote carried organic apples and donut holes to youth group meeting today along with a laptop and all of my other stuff. We planned for our Heifer Fair next Sunday. I got this at the thrift store, I think. Need to read the blog to remember. Front pocket is great for phone and/or keys. It can be a bit of a black hole, so it’s better with a smaller purse inside.

day 35

This DKNY crossbody hangs on the back of my closet with my most beautiful bags. Some are beautiful and I use them a lot, some are so cool and I love to look at them but don’t use them as much. I don’t have many of these anymore, which feels good. ANYWAY this is classic safari camera bag meets modern styling with nickel hardware and cognac leather trim. It’s a keeper.

day 10 for real

I found this bag at Goodwill a few years ago when cognac was the color to have. I could not believe the quality of the leather when i touched it. You know i love pebbled leather but this is smooth, rich, quality leather and craftspersonship. It was $8 or $12, something like that – and it was quickly purchased before someone figured out they should have charged more for a vintage Nordstrom leather bag/tote. Yes, it converts to a tote. This color goes with everything. I really enjoy this bag.

bag 10 – claimed

Either I’m getting rid of ugly bags, or I was too harsh with the rules. Either way, there are lots of unclaimed bags up for grabs. If the blog post doesn’t say claimed, it’s still available.

OK for today’s bag, I’m giving away this beautiful suede mock-croc bag that somehow manages to have glitter in it too. And this glitter DOES NOT rub off. I got this at Goodwill last year; the color is a rich cognac. I must confess that I have to update the designer later; we had a flood in the basement and I haven’t been upstairs to check on that. I will update the blog when I can. Very roomy and the zipper slides like butter. If you’re interested email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 10.

Sundays are Feast days and not part of the 40 days of Lent. So on Sunday peruse the bags still available. I’ll be at church hanging out with my youth group.

Day 19

IMG_0488Reminder – giveaway phase is over, this is an Easter celebration of bags. Ok.┬áSince I’m on an adventure today, I thought I’d use this DNKY safari-style bag in khaki cotton with cognac leather trim. I love the long strap that makes it a perfect cross body for me. The cool hardware is balanced by the lightweight fabric, so it’s not too heavy. So many cool details like the leather pulls on the front exterior pouches. I got this bag at Plato’s Closet, a resale store for juniors. Check them out for great bags at a value. I get no money for that plug BTW.
