bag 28

One of the girls would choose this and I’d say no, not that one yet. This is a patent leather Cole Haan small satchel. it’s got the flaw you see there, a little white mark. That can be easily covered with a green sharpie, i don’t know why i never did that – i just didn’t care and I didn’t carry it that often. Getting rid of this teaches me i can love something and not have it.

bag 18 – taken

It’s fitting that I post this bag today. It’s my favorite color pebbled leather tote by Liz Claiborne. It’s got a large open midsection and a a back zippered section which makes a great spot for a laptop, but it’s not padded. There’s two front snap-closure pockets and several interior pockets. I used this as a briefcase/purse through these many years since I got it. It’s got some wear but still looks gorgeous. GUC Good Used Condition as they say.

Sometimes I have to read my own blog to remember how I got a bag. Apparently, I got this at Goodwill for $5 at least two years ago. I do love green, and Cole Haan makes great bags. The scratch was there when I bought it, I believe, which reminds me that imperfections can be beautiful. Story of my life.

There was a store in the Brentwood shopping center – I can’t remember the name of it, maybe Conway? Some TJ Maxx type store but not as nice. But hey, if a store is in my neighborhood and has purses you can bet I’ll be checking it out. I got this green Stone Mountain bag there when we used to live in College Hill. Structured hobo with plenty of space inside, adjustable shoulder strap in a sagey green. This is another bag where a friend of mine said, “If you ever get rid of that one…” So, it’s up for grabs for everyone, and I hope she sees it.

bag 16

Green is my favorite color, so I’m always on the lookout for green bags. On a recent trip to Goodwill, I found several awesome bags and had Jaiya help me narrow it down. This  $6 purse by Wilson’s Leather made the cut. You may know Wilson’s from the mall, a place I rarely go so I’m not sure if the stores are still there. I’m also not a fan of using small bags, but this one has so many cool details and – it’s green! It’s got a split strap handle, silver hardware, and three interior pockets. Very attractive for the season.

If you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with the following details: bag 16, your name, your address. Thanks!

Since tomorrow is a feast day and there’s no post, I’ll remind you to review the blog for any posts that DON’T say claimed. That means they’re still up for grabs. If you see anything you like, follow the instructions in that post. PEACE

$4 at Goodwill. My favorite color. Life is Good. That’s the brand. Perfect for library books and groceries.

Yesterday’s bag was a Cole Haan green patent leather satchel-style purse. I think I got it at the thrift store but maybe Clothes Mentor. The scuffs help me know it’s patent leather vs. pleather. Did I mention green is my favorite color? This bag is best worn with a scarf on it and with a not-all-black outfit.

bag 22 – claimed

I found this no-name bag at Goodwill in Connecticut last year when we went out during the girls’ spring break. My mother-in-law was not doing so well, and we wanted to help my father-in-law as much as we could. Hiking at West Hartford Reservoir 6 and thrifting gave me solace.

Wooden triangular handles, faux lock, adjustable strap, pebbled pleather, gold hardware, and most importantly – my favorite color, green. I carried this last Easter. It’s a very unique bag, perfect for Spring.

Green is my favorite color, so a green purse at the thrift store has a higher percentage chance of being bought than most other colors. Then there are designers that I prefer that have a higher percentage chance of being bought. So when there’s a green patent leather Cole Haan purse for $5 it’s as good as sold. It’s pretty roomy with space for my water bottle as long as it doesn’t leak. It doesn’t.
