bag 39

The last black vintage Fossil of Joy’s and mine is up for grabs today, which seems completely appropriate for Good Friday. Supper pocket on outer flap, and zipper pocket under the flap on the front of bag. Slip pocket on the back. Zippered divided interior with a zipper pocket on the back wall. With three sections inside it’s easy to stay organized. The strap is adjustable which is why the strap is sticking out – we were playing with the length, and Joy usually had it on the longest length for the crossbody effect.

I really wondered about giving this up, but decided to do so if someone else can use it. Full disclosure: it smells faintly of old school powder. Some of you know what i mean!

If you like this vintage Fossil. email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with your name, your address, and bag 39. Check out the available bags to see if there’s anything you’d like to claim. Remaining bags will be donated. Peace.

I bought this Fossil at the St. Vincent dePaul near me. Why would i buy ANOTHER black Fossil? My favorite black bag that looks a little like this is wearing out. When i saw this one, i thought ok, I’ll keep this for when that one gives out. What was I thinking?

This bag has a gusseted pocket with a zipper pocket above it on front, zipper pocket on back, two slip pockets inside, one great for a phone, and an interior zip pocket. Adjustable strap complete with the Fossil key and a lock fob. The more I describe it the more I like it. Plus, grommets.

If you like bag 36, email me with your name, your address, and bag 36 in the subject line. Three bags to go. Peace.

bag 34

Here’s another Fossil art piece. Small kiss closure bag. From last year:

Fossil vintage style frame bag in cream with a kiss clasp closure, two front pockets, and a short shoulder strap for when I want to look cute and not carry a lot of stuff. It’s much more beautiful than it is functional – when I put all my stuff inside, the clasp doesn’t stay closed. I keep scarves in it so it can hang out in my room and be attractive. I don’t remember where or when I got it other than that it was a thrift store.

bag 32 – taken

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.

from eight years ago, about this purse by guess who – Fossil:

rippin’ and runnin’ is what was up today. mondays are often like that, but with ap exams and a graduating senior in the mix it got a little hairy. so i did what many a mom would do: dropped the middle one off at cello and went to starbucks, got a tall mocha, and went to the park with the youngest to hit the swing set .

this purse is a favorite that i intentionally put off until the latter part of the 50 days to spread the love. it’s a fossil, fabric with leather trim. yes, it came from my favorite goodwill for $8. or maybe $12, i can’t remember. either way, i really have enjoyed this bag because it’s very well organized. it has three exterior pockets – one big pouch in the back, a zippered pocket and flap pouch in front; and three interior pockets. it’s not too cavernous that i lose my giant key ring in the bottom.

we’re fortunate that the street where my daughter takes cello lessons has a park, so on nice days my sweet baby loves to swing. i love to swing too, but sometimes i’m working or reading while she swings. today i joined her, and i’m really glad i did. swinging gives me such a great feeling. there’s nothing like the wind rushing through my whole person – it takes me right back to being 6 again.

she begged me to take a picture of the purse on her lap like i did her sister yesterday. here’s a closeup of the front pockets and handles held by one of the sweetest hands on the planet. thank you, God, for my girls. i don’t think about what i would do without them.

I really love this bag, but don’t wear a lot of brown ever so… if you like bag 27, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 27, your name, and your address.

bag 20 – taken

Here’s another offering from my vast Fossil collection. Can’t remember if this was Joy’s or if i got it at the thrift store – probably with Joy. We did a lot of thrifting together. This crossbody has a back zipper pocket with card slots and room for tissues and masks. The front pocket has magnet closure and slight gussets for keys, unless you have a giant key ring. Lots of room inside for wallet and other essentials. Brassy/gold- toned hardware.

bag 19 – taken

Here’s another Fossil – i do love to collect them. This is a messenger bag crossbody in a thick cotton twill with leather trim. Lots of compartments, laptop section, and a place for everything. I used it once last year to deliver chocolate crosses to my youth group on Easter. I hope someone can enjoy it. I got it from Goodwill and it’s in great shape.

If you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with your name, address, and bag 19. Lots of other great bags still available.

Already at the place where I’m giving away bags I’d buy today if i saw them in the store. Here’s one of my favorite Fossil bags. Coated cotton in a very cute print. I love the birds and the flowers. Somebody get it before I decide to keep it. Why am I like this!
