This bag is an art piece for me, and I can’t keep all the art. This is a very cute Fossil cognac leather satchel with a zip closure. Doctor bag style opening, so it opens wide. Zipper pocket inside with woven handles. I got this at Goodwill years ago for $6, I think. It’s been sitting on my dresser, stuffed with scarves that I of course did not wear because i could not see them. I’m an out of sight, out of mind person, especially when it comes to scarves.
Ah, I remember finding this one at St. Vincent de Paul in Mt. Washington for $6. I just saw one online for $165. Woven kilim style carpet bag with a doctor bag style hinged closure by T Cappelli in Plano, Texas. Complete with four brass feet, and a detachable crossbody strap, the brand is recognizable by the single ring on the handle. These bags were made in the 1980s, which is just my style. Well, usually. I grew up in the 80s, so let’s just say it’s my style era. Last year, I wrote: I enjoyed carrying it today and got lots of comments on it. I had it full of stuff, and the magnet closure did not fail. Can’t wait to carry it again in the future. This picture was taken in my office last April.
