Bag 24 – taken 

Fall being my favorite season meant i could not pass up a red patent leather dome bag with real leaves between the patent and the leather. I mean, come on! It’s sat happily, or maybe sadly, in my cedar closet until fall arrived each year, then i maybe carried it once. Made by Debra Lewis San Francisco, it could be yours when you email 50favbags@gmail.com.


Bag 10 – taken

You can’t beat a colorful bag to bring life to an outfit. If you love to wear black, like i do, you need some punch to bring you and your outfit to life. That’s why i can’t resist grabbing red bags when i’m thrifting. If not me, then you. This Italian bag was chilling at St. Vincent’s, so i saved it just for this occasion – a cold, sunny Saturday when i’m homebound because i overdid it the last few days. If you like soft, supple leather, saturated color, outside pockets and brass hardware, this is your bag. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com and let me know you want Bag 10.

There are several other bags still up for grabs; if the title doesn’t say Taken it’s available.

Bag 6 – taken

If you’ve been on this blog in previous years, you know i LOVE the Sak purses. Pebbled leather, rich colors, quality – i have a hard time leaving them in the thrift store. Then there’s the color red. But, how many red purses can one person own? So i’m happy to offer this red hobo with a braided brown strap, outer pocket and a few pockets inside. Yours when you email me at 50favbags@gmail.com.

I went back to work today after being out of the office for seven weeks. I feel like i need a week to recover. Hope your day was great.

bag #15 – taken


Confession time… i’m uninspired with my bag giveaway. There doesn’t seem to be the same excitement as last year. Don’t ask me why i think a Lenten discipline should be exciting – but i’m just saying. A few days in a row with no one wanting the bags i was posting took the air out of my balloon. (What am i talking about? I don’t have a balloon. I should say what i really mean.) OK it made me sad. But – that’s part of life; and i’m pushing past those feelings because i have lots more great bags to give away, and those that don’t get claimed will go to good homes.

Here’s an original Harvey’s seatbelt bag. I gave away a black one last year, and kept this one but have not used it once since… i have no clue. So it’s yours for the asking at 50favbags@gmail.com; include bag #15 in your email, and include your address. Peace!


bag #30

IMG_2906Time flies when you’re having fun giving away bags. Today’s bag is in the same family as bag #20; it’s another red Giani Bernini. I got this one at the St. Vincent de Paul near my house for $4.50 – I love it when it’s half off purses! It has so much organization. But, too small for me. If you like it, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com. TAKEN – thanks!IMG_2907 IMG_2908

bag #20

IMG_5243 IMG_8248 IMG_7350 IMG_3471Today is my birthday, so i got you some presents! It was so fun to thrift today, especially at Goodwill, where you get half off everything on your birthday. Just so happens that St. Vincent dePaul had purses half off today, so i picked up this red Giani Bernini for $4. Many of you have asked for red so since it was the third time I saw it, i figured one of you was meant to have it.

About 12″ long, lots of pockets including an interior front pocket, zippered separator and of course the keychain. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this one.

I had a great day, and am now baking myself a cake and heading to Maggiano’s with my family. Peace!

TAKEN – thanks!

bag #7


IMG_2737Do you like red? Do you like giant leather bags? You’re in luck. I got this behemoth at Goodwill one day when I was looking for a red purse to replace one I had given away. I liked the hardware, the tassels, the feet — but this bag is a bit too much for me. Yes, the day has come. Now, it has lots of interior organization – a zippered center pocket separates the interior, and you’ve got the two exterior pouches. You could carry a 15″ laptop and a whole lot more in this bag.

So why give it up? Almost 7 years ago, I was diagnosed with a neck strain, and my doctor blamed my giant purse. Once I loaded this baby up, it was too heavy for me. So, I have to let this one go.

TAKEN – thanks!
