bag 29

When we’re able to travel again, even across town, you might like this bag by Travelon. Crossbody with lots of pockets and pouches. Two sides for the main pouch to keep things separate and easily accessible.

If you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 29, your name, and as the girls say your addy. Peace.

bag 9

If there’s a bag giveaway, you can be sure that there will be a few by the sak. I really love this brand for the quality and for the linings – they’re usually colorful and fun. This small/medium crossbody bag is no exception with soft pebbled leather, brass hardware, adjustable strap, and sky blue lining. I also like the braided zipper pull and organized interior. Got this one thrifting at the St. Vincent de Paul. The sak also makes coated cotton bags with wild designs, and my favorite one is what I call the peace bag. Lots of bags have peace signs but this one actually has the word peace with lots of birds and other whimsical images. I also have a the sak wallet that I got at Goodwill for $4 several years ago and it’s still in excellent shape.

The other thing I really love about the sak, in general, is that they don’t use capital letters for their logo sometimes. They are also very socially and environmentally conscious and care about people around the world. Check our their vision here.

bag 7 – claimed

Throwback Thursday on a Wednesday to the 80s when some people had bags like this that I couldn’t afford. Yes – this is a vintage Blackwatch plaid Ralph Lauren Polo saddlebag crossbody. I got it for Kaia because she likes stuff like this but it found its way to the giveaway basket. The girls also offer bags for the giveaway. Often they’re bags that I bought for them, but not always.

If you had a blast in the 80s or wish you did, this Polo purse will bring you to that Xanadu you’ve been looking for. If you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with the following information: bag 7, your name, your address. Thanks!

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.

bag 3 – claimed

 

Let’s just go ahead and get this one out of the way. I have a thing for the mailbag or saddlebag style of purse. This Fossil bag is leather on the front and canvas on the back and interior. That’s yogurt on the bag; daggone Siggi is no joke, but it will clean with no problem. The strap is very adjustable and takes this bag from a shoulder bag to a crossbody.

I found this Fossil several years ago at the Mt. Washington Goodwill. Those were the days when the girls were still at Sands Montessori and I still went out there on a regular basis. I used to get out to the thrift stores once a week. My thrifting frequency is one of the most significant changes since I started this blog. Each year I go a little less often. GIving up this bag is a direct result of my new normal of infrequent thrift shopping. If you like it, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with the following: bag 3, your name, your address. Thanks!

Be sure to check back; bags that are still available won’t say “claimed.”

day 25

DKNY safari style crossbody with an appearance by Shooky. Such a great bag. Those designers think of all the little details.

day 23

This Ugg crossbody saddlebag style purse came from the Mt. Washington goodwill. Those were the good old days. The color goes with lots as it’s not exactly brown, nor is it burgundy. It’s a dark brownish brick color.

It’s Easter, and I’m celebrating the 50 days of Easter with 50 bags. None are available for giveaway or sale. Including this one. Or any other ones. You get it now.
