Day two at Procter. Vera’s back with this blue floral crossbody with lots of organization in a very small bag. Front flap opens to an id and card area, the middle section has room for essentials, and the back pocket holds an iPhone6s, so not the giant phones – those would fit inside. Adjustable strap. I got this especially for this giveaway sometime last year, because lots of folks like this type of bag and it’s not something I would buy for myself. $6? Rescued.

The Sak makes another appearance in this crossbody pebbled leather bag with whipstitching. Small but rounded, so it holds a lot. There’s the central interior, and then the flap has a zipper which opens to a full pocket with patterned lining. Excellent for travel or other situations where you want to keep some items handy and some items close but safe. I’ve had this a while and used it lots, but I have other pebbled leather bags, and I have a gold one exactly like this one. Both from the thrift store although I saw them at TJ Maxx and almost bought one there but held out.
Today we’re coming to you from my office at Forward Movement. Yes that’s a Bishop Curry bobblehead staying protected from the elements along with other toys and manipulatives.
Searching for the front part of my boot led me to find some bags that I put in the hall closet for the giveaway that got covered with off-season clothing. Lucky me and you. Vera’s back with a small blue crossbody with an adustable leather strap. The pattern is so cool. Never been used – the tissue paper is still taped to the inside zipper fobs. Another Goodwill rescue, I’m sure. I thought one of the girls would like but they side-eyed me like… no, Mom.
Here’s my other The Sak convertible purse – remember the one with the rainforest? Here it is in silver. Convertible in many ways – crossbody to shoulder bag to clutch; full size to envelope style. I got this new at TJ Maxx around 9 years ago for a high school reunion.
Ok, I’ll admit it – these photos are from a few years ago when I carried this purse during the 50 days of Easter. The cane in the pictures belonged to my dear mother-in-law Ida McKenney. She was visiting us a few years ago, and we went to Panera for lunch. Ida died last May, and I miss her terribly. Not only was she a great friend, but she stepped up her mom role for me after my mom died in 2001. We loved to go thrifting together wherever we were – her house in Connecticut, here in Cincinnati, or when we traveled.
Here’s another snakeskin print, this time much lighter and made for travel. Yes, it’s Travelon, with it’s adjustable strap and multiple sections to hold your stuff securely. It’s a cool design with two large zipper sections creating a middle section that snaps closed. There are zippers, pouches, and pockets galore. Know that your important items are secure while looking marginally cute. Just kidding.
Email me at email@example.com with bag 18 if it’s calling you.
Here’s a silky silver bag by Kenneth Cole Reaction, modeled by a tree near my car, a table in my room, and my rental car that brought me down here to the Dubose Conference Center in Monteagle, TN. Driving allowed me to bring enough bags to continue the giveaway away from home. This bag is convertible, roomy, and elegant. Use it as a small tote by carrying the handles, or adjust the strap for shoulder length or crossbody with the bag folded over. Pockets and pouches means your stuff is where you put it… as long as you can remember where that is. Lightweight so it’s great for traveling.
I found this Gianni Bini brown bag at goodwill and I bought it because lots of you like purses with organization. It’s small but packed with pockets, pouches, and slots for cards. I just drove to Tennessee for Listening Hearts training so I have to do this quickly. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with bag 6.
