bag 38

This Ogio backpack was at the St. Vincent de Paul on Este just hanging around waiting to be rescued. It’s a great backpack with padded straps and exterior cupholders. Those are backpack musts for me – and I need two cupholders. This is in pristine condition. If you’re in touch with yourself the ESPN W will only encourage you. Yes, Eric Carle’s Very Busy Spider hangs in my office.

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.

From April 2017: Let me tell you about this laptop bag/briefcase i found a few weeks ago at goodwill for $6. I like to grab all of the bags that look good, then sit down and inspect them, google brands, zip zippers, you get the idea. So i’m sitting in the chair section, looking at these other bags that i DID NOT buy, when i picked this one up. It looked brand new, and one of these kinds of leathers that you can’t be sure if it’s real or not. I found the name of the bag on the zipper – McKlein. I’d never heard of it. I googled it, and found McKleinUSA.com with, you guessed it, bags for sale, and the leather is real, at least from the descriptions and prices of the bags on the site. A comparable bag to this one retails for between $112 and $180. This one has three separate sections – two outer zipper sections with an open area in the middle that snaps shut.

Spending a lot of money for a bag is not my MO. When Vera Bradley came out it was like Pappigallo all over again. I was like NO. Then arthritis got me and I needed lightweight bags. Thankfully they went out of style a bit and started showing up at Goodwill. I don’t care about trends so much – I’ll make it look good. I got five in varying sizes over the last couple of years and this tote got used once. Pockets galore for all your odds and ends.
