I forget everything about this bag except that it’s a beautiful black hole. No organization. I think I got it at pier 1. Who knows. It’s a crossbody or shoulder bag.
This bag tells a story. Found at the Mt. Washington goodwill in the Sands Montessori days. Makes a great overflow shopping bag. There was a great sale on Murray’s parm and Romano cheeses.
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.
One of my favorite Fossils. Mostly coated cotton which I love because it’s colorful and wipeable. Enough said.
Remember old school Liz Claiborne bags? I had a couple back in the day; the coated leather circle bags with the embossed pattern? Yeah, I know some of you remember those.
Today brings this Liz Claiborne fabric bag with leather trim that reminds me of Fall. Let me tell you: If you see a Liz Claiborne bag with these kinds of detials and this kind of zipper, it’s a higher end bag. There are some cheaper or knockoff LC bags, but check out the quality of the trim and hardware and you’ll be able to tell. This one has a beautiful leaf pattern with brown leather whipstitched trim. Very spacious with three sections inside: two large sections with a zipper seperator will transport all of your… stuff with style. The leather feet are the cutest part of this bag to me. Yes, I really like this bag, but I have a red leather LC that you will see in the 50 days of Easter, so I’ll be fine.
