Many of my Forward Movement colleagues have benefited from this bag giveaway through the years, which i love because i can often see my old bag friends again. The bags, not them! C’mon now. One colleague donated a couple of bags to the giveaway this year, for which i was immensely grateful. Today’s bag comes with bonus items – matching wallet, journal, and key fob. WOW.
This Vera Bradley tote has a removable strap to make it a shoulder bag or even a cross body, but i can imagine most folks would carry it by the handles. The pattern is called art plaid and i can see why. It’s got great leather details including the little tassels. It’s a large bag and quite roomy. It’s got feet on the bottom to protect the leather underneath.
Thanks again to my co-worker who I’m keeping anonymous unless she wants to out herself on FB. If you like this bag email me at email@example.com with your name, bag 7: Vera Bradley tote, and your address. Peace.
Ralph Lauren is happening today, in the form of this cute plaid bag from St. Vincent for $3. I think this may have been half off, too – so make that $1.50. Leather handle and trim, silver hardware with a gray plaid pattern. New inside with a zipper pocket. I consider this small at 9″x7″. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
I think it’s so cute how people consider this a contest that you can win. I mean, you are winning when you get a purse, it’s true. But unlike many things in life, you can win more than once here. If you’ve already gotten a bag, but see another one you like, email me and let’s see what happens.
One thing I’ve realized this Lent is that Lent is 40 days, but there are more than 40 days separating Ash Wednesday and Easter. I’ve never counted before, and while I’ve read Lenten devotionals in the past, I didn’t remember or didn’t know that Sundays aren’t included in Lent. So, you win – there will be 46 bags instead of 40. Those Holy Week bags will be bonus bags. I’d better find six more purses out of my collection, which will truly challenge me. We all know how hard it is to let go sometimes.
