bag 22 – claimed

My dad bought this bag for Kaia and honestly, she never liked it and gave it to me. Of course, my dad was well aware of my mom’s predilection for Aigner bags and shoes. I’m sure that’s what drew him to this bag at the upscale resale store he frequents.

Lovely vintage cotton saddle-style bag with two sections inside, a back pocket, adjustable buckle strap, and leather trim. I have a DNKY bag that’s very similar that I really like, so this one is up for grabs.

If you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with the following: bag 22, your name, your address. Thanks!

And yes, that’s a Charlie Brown Christmas tree in the background and Bible Gateway on my computer with a Root for Jesus sticker. Mhmm!!

All bags will be delivered once I’m out of quarantine. I have extreme hygiene going on, but please take care when you receive packages and wipe them down or wait at least five hours before opening. PEACE

bag 15 – claimed

Giani Bernini is a high-quality Macy’s brand of bags. I find them often at Goodwill and St. Vincent, but not always in this excellent condition. This coated cotton bag has lots of zipper pockets and pouches, leather straps and accents, and a very colorful cotton interior. There’s even a detachable coin purse! If you like bags that have lots of organization with a place for everything, this bag is for you.

Yesterday I offered a coated cotton bag and I admit I’m drawn to them thanks because they’re lightweight, durable, and easy to clean for folks like me who are prone to spills. The two-toned neutral fabrics will go with just about anything so it makes a good everyday bag for any season.

When I’m in the thrift store looking at bags, I always check the brand and if I’m not familiar with it, I research it. Lots of quality bags come your way due to my willingness to sit and research – which many thrift store folks do not do, hence they price high-quality bags at a low price.

bag 6 – claimed

Always bet on baggallini. I love this brand. When I see it in the thrift store in good condition, I grab it because I know someone will be blessed by it. This khaki-colored crossbody has an adjustable strap to double as a shoulder bag. This one is very roomy with two snap closure pockets in front and two pockets on the back. Lined in red, so don’t open it at Target or folks will ask you where the bike locks are located. Found this one at St. Vincent de Paul on Este for $8. Find them for a reasonable price in all sizes at TJ Maxx for $20 for a small bag and on up.

day 43

This Avorio hobo made in Italy was hanging at the Mt. Washington goodwill for $8. I almost injured myself snatching it from the rack. Those days are long gone, un/fortunately. Here’s more about it. Pebbled leather, neutral color, adjustble strap – and a black hole.

This year is a little more… at home. Yeah, that’s my foot and one of my New Balance lightweight runners. The goal here is to get a photo each day and sometimes that photo is more real than I’d like, but that’s ok – welcome to my life.

bag 17 – claimed

 

Jaiya modeled then helped me resarch this brand. G.I.L.I. get it love it. We found out that it’s a high-end QVC brand. If you check the G.I.L.I. page the bags are anywhere between $45-$300. Yeah NO. I got this suede convertible backpack shoulderbag from Goodwill for $10 within the last year. I was in a backpack mood and while I’ve stopped buying lots of bags, I would still get a backpack because I need things to be even on my back as much as possilble. But I have enough, so here you are.

Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 17 if you dig it.

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 38

img_6659Since my models went to bed without taking a photo, I’m offering up a sweet little woven purse from The Sak, just in time for Easter Sunday. This purse is light wheat in color with a clasp closure, and handles long enough for the shoulder or to carry on your arm. It’s the perfect spring purse – like carrying a basket, but softer and classier. Got it at Goodwill several years ago because I just can’t resist The Sak! I hope you enjoy it after emailing me at 50favbags@gmail.com.

Bag 36 – takenĀ 

I bought this tan vegan cross body tote by ana (JC Penny brand) for my daughter, Nia. Since she left it here, I’m going to assume she doesn’t want it. You might, though, since it has a long strap, two handles, and lots of pockets and pouches. Snap closure  It’s lightweight and great for someone with lots to carry. Email me at 50 fav bags@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Still available: Bag 1, Bag 5, Bag 8, Bag 11, Bag 13, Bag 33, Bag 34, Bag 35. These are headed to Dress for Success if not claimed. Peace.

days 40-49

It’s the final countdown. Honestly I was so far from the blog, for a variety of reasons. I completely lost count. Fortunately, i was going though the process in every other way, taking pictures of the different bags each day. Even though i knew Pentecost was close, i still thought i had another week after this. So there’s lots of great bags that i planned to use but won’t make it this year. Cool!

Today’s bag is a hand-crocheted bag by The Sak. Tan with long shoulder straps, inside and outside zipper pockets. It was at St. Vincent for 1/2 off for a whopping $2. It’s in great shape with no interior marks. Email 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it. Enjoy your weekend! We’re getting ready for a special set of visitors at our house… David’s parents arrive next week. Taken. Thanks!
