day 32

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.┬áCan’t wait to carry it again in the future. This picture was taken in my office last April.

day 24 – yesterday

This Coach bag might be a fake, but if it is, it’s an excellent one. I remember when I bought it at Goodwill, I went though all the checks, and it seemed to pass. The leather feels really amazing. The tag checked out. The stitching is tight. There aren’t any zippers, but all of the closures look legit. I really hate fakes for myself, but I understand. No judgement. This bag is really heavy so I don’t carry it often. But when I do, it’s amazing. After I bought this, I gave three Coach bags away. I gave another one away this year. This is the last one in my collection. Handle bags are my weakness.

bag 23 – claimed

 

Woven bag with leather handle and crossbody/shoulder strap. Velcro closure. A wonderful bag for Spring and Summer. Offered, claimed, and returend to me because the new owner discerned that she had too many bags.
