So here’s how it goes for me at the Mt. Washington St. Vincent de Paul. I go in and get a cart. I make my way to the back where the purses are and start from the right and move left. This bag was right in the beginning, because the colors go from colors on the right to browns, then black, then neutrals. Yeah, it’s this organized. If I see something I like, I get it and put in the cart and keep moving until I’m finished browsing. Then, I examine each bag. This one is a woven kilim style carpet bag with a hinged closure – think doctor bag by T. Cappelli. It has four brass feet, so I knew the quality was there. If I’ve never heard of it, I google it. Sometimes I find that it’s a BS brand, sometimes it’s a QVC or department store brand. Sometimes I find that it’s a legit brand from the 80s. 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. $6.
Having one of those days. Here’s a quilted Vera Bradley frame purse in blue, orange, pink and white. It reminds me of my mom’s purses back in the day – she loved frame bags and coin purses. Another Goodwill find last year when I invested in way too many VB bags.

I picked up this little baby at Valley Thrift and come on… Fossil, beads on the strap and zipper pull, the key is amazing; it’s all so adorable and classy. I am not leaving it there for $2.99. I know I used it at least once because the price tag is inside the bag, but I can’t remember when that was. So goodbye to thee, sweet baby. You are sooooo cute.
Since my models went to bed without taking a photo, I’m offering up a sweet little woven purse from The Sak, just in time for Easter Sunday. This purse is light wheat in color with a clasp closure, and handles long enough for the shoulder or to carry on your arm. It’s the perfect spring purse – like carrying a basket, but softer and classier. Got it at Goodwill several years ago because I just can’t resist The Sak! I hope you enjoy it after emailing me at email@example.com.
