It happens sometimes that I fall asleep before I post the day’s bag. Here is bag 9 – UGG from Goodwill. Here’s the original post where I tell the story of getting this bag eight years ago. If I didn’t have this post I’d forget everything except the location.
It’s still in pretty good shape, but you might need some fabric glue in a place on the strap. If you like bag 9, hmu at firstname.lastname@example.org with bag 9, your name, your address. Peace!
This Ugg crossbody saddlebag style purse came from the Mt. Washington goodwill. Those were the good old days. The color goes with lots as it’s not exactly brown, nor is it burgundy. It’s a dark brownish brick color.
It’s Easter, and I’m celebrating the 50 days of Easter with 50 bags. None are available for giveaway or sale. Including this one. Or any other ones. You get it now.
My UGG purse and I visited my dear friend Fr. Jason Prati’s church, All Saints Episcopal in New Albany. His office is so inviting. The Diocese of Southern Ohio capped off our program year of reading the Book of Exodus with lectures and discussion. Listening made me realize how much I miss school.
I got this bag at Goodwill back when the Mt. Washington location consistently received amazing purses. I’ll have to look back to see how much it cost. Less than $10 or $15. I enjoy saddle bags and the color reminds me of my mom’s Aigner bags.
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!

Well there you have it, one day to go, with commensurate wrap-up. Peace.
this ugg purse is one of my favorite scores from my spot, goodwill. i got it the same time i got my famed stolen calvin klein purse. sometimes, when it rains, it pours at that location, like my recent trip. i got this for $10, half off of $20. this is some of the softest leather that isn’t pebbled or italian. i didn’t have anything like this, so it was a very welcome addition to the family.
several of my friends have begged me to let them have this purse (you know who you are). the answer is no. when will i ever be able to afford a purse like this unless i get it at a resale store? the 12th of never, that’s when.
confession: this was hard to write today, because a friend of mine said on facebook that i should auction all of these purses off on the last day to “cleanse my soul”. this has really bothered me. the whole reason i took this on was to do something for myself, learn something about myself, and perhaps about my love of bags. i don’t think my soul needs cleansing. at least, not the way he suggested. i immediately got defensive and started to type a response, then i’d erase it. i started again, and again – but every response felt defensive. i don’t have a need or desire to defend my purse collection. if anyone thinks that my large collection makes me selfish, a hoarder, vacuous, materialistic, or whatever, that’s fine. i know myself and the good and bad i do in the world. after a day of struggling with that comment, i’m at peace. so is my soul. for now. i do have a kid about to graduate, remember? the peace doesn’t always last for long, but i certainly know how to seek it and find it. and on that note, i’m headed to church for Pentecost. peace.
