bag 1 – claimed

Greetings in the name of the one who Lent is all about. I’m entering into another season of self-examination by giving away bags from my not-so-large-anymore collection.

This smallish pebbled leather bag was rescued from the Saint Vincent de Paul on Este in Cincinnati. It’s a no-name bag with lots of beautiful details – two tassels in front which are part of the toggle closure; another toggle closure from the sides; and a detachable suede zipper pouch made from the same suede that lines the bag. It also has four feet so the bottom leather won’t touch the ground. The lilac color will add a nice pop to your spring wardrobe. It’s a really well-made bag – I wonder who it’s by? Maybe you can solve that mystery.

Email 50favbags@gmail.com if you would like to have this bag, no matter where you live. Delivery is part of my Lenten discipline. Please include the following: bag 1, your name, your address. Thanks! Follow this rule if you would like the bag. No stopping me saying “hey Miriam, I’d like blah blah bag” or leaving a message on Facebook, my phone, or any other email than 50favbags@gmail.com. Thanks.

The reason it’s so late is that David had a car accident with Nia on the way to pick up Jaiya and attend a UCONN women’s basketball game. Everyone is mostly ok – Nia banged up her knee and so we went to the ER. David’s car will be ok. Thank you, God, that no one was seriously injured. We’ll get through it.

bag 36

Ok so the guys out there don’t feel neglected, here’s a computer briefcase by Incase. Room for your laptop, cords, headphones, and lots of other papers/magazines/small books and other items of that ilk. Large zip pocket in front and a little phone or key pouch on the back. A couple of little marks on the front won’t prevent you from carrying your stuff stylishly. Dawn or oxyclean will likely solve it.

Email me at 50favbags.com with bag 36.

bag 8 – claimed

Lucky Brand that I’ve tried twice to give away. Third times the charm. Bucket style with fabric and suede with lots of hardware. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 8. I really love the style but my back can’t take it.

bag #14 – taken

img_6269I saw this purple shoulder bag at Valley Thrift and thought, no. No meant yes, and here we are. I couldn’t leave the purple purse in the store, Lent would be here eventually. Plus, Nia’s favorite color might still be purple. (that’s my 20yo daughter.) What can I tell you – when i put it against the rest of my collection, it had to go. My loss is your gain when it comes to purple bags. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’re interested.

bag #41

It’s tote bag Monday. Here’s a purple faux mock croc leather bag by the now defunct Coldwater Creek with two outer pockets and an inside divider. Email 50favbags@gmail.com if you like. Taken. Thanks!









bag #19

IMG_0277 IMG_2825This little purple/lilac leather Nine West bag was another rescue from St. Vincent. First of all, I couldn’t believe it was leather. Not that it feels or looks cheap, mind you, but most of the Nine West bags I come across are faux leather these days. Second of all, it was $2. It would make a cute going-out purse or Easter bag. Velcro closure with a zipper pocket inside. Carry by hand, over the wrist, or it might fit on a tiny shoulder. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it. Alarm clocks are alarming, and i stopped using them 25 or so years ago. Good thing my husband doesn’t use them either. For that and other reasons, daylight savings time kicks my butt every time. I just woke up from a 3 hour nap. But we’re thawing out, so if we have to lose an hour, at least we gained warmth and sunshine.

TAKEN – thanks.
