This Coach purse was at the thrift store, and they clearly thought it was a fake. It’s not. It’s beautiful with a purple lining. It’s a lovely bag, with lots of pockets and pouches to keep it from being a black hole bag.
Here’s my faithful Kipling complete with the little gorilla charm. This is a bag that can hold a lot but looks small. Water bottle fits. Crossbody strap – check. A place for everything – yes. This bag works.
Green is my favorite color, so a green purse at the thrift store has a higher percentage chance of being bought than most other colors. Then there are designers that I prefer that have a higher percentage chance of being bought. So when there’s a green patent leather Cole Haan purse for $5 it’s as good as sold. It’s pretty roomy with space for my water bottle as long as it doesn’t leak. It doesn’t.
Found this Fossil backpack at the mount Washington goodwill. I used to get lots of fabulous bags here, but the selection has changed. I was glad to find this even is there’s no key. Lower right corner has the name embossed. I was using this one for weeks before the fifty days of Easter. My water bottle fits perfectly. I really am getting down to the wire – very few purses left.
My all time favorite Fossil bag. I use this one a LOT. Everything has its place: keys – snap pouch; phone – front zipper pocket. More pockets and pouches than I can handle. Perfect crossbody strap length. I just love it. This was goodwill gold. So I took the photo with a few of my other favorite things: beaded basket for desk trinkets and keys, and my photo book/frame with my favorite pic of the girls all wearing pink.
This bag by Insiders NY is one of the coolest bags I own. I got it at goodwill for $6 around six years ago. Checking again online, this bag still sells and the price is $250 now. They take photos and print them on soft, buttery leather. The bag is a little small, but not too small for my water bottle. It also has a little leather pocket inside or a phone. It’s perfect when I need a boost like I did today.
When I looked back to see if I had a post for every day, I noticed there’s no day 18. All I can say is I realize how I forgot to do this post. Baggallini crossbody convertible coral bag. Great for travel, not so great when hiking.
