day 14

This bag tells a story. Found at the Mt. Washington goodwill in the Sands Montessori days. Makes a great overflow shopping bag. There was a great sale on Murray’s parm and Romano cheeses.

day 6

So here’s how it goes for me at the Mt. Washington St. Vincent de Paul. I go in and get a cart. I make my way to the back where the purses are and start from the right and move left. This bag was right in the beginning, because the colors go from colors on the right to browns, then black, then neutrals. Yeah, it’s this organized. If I see something I like, I get it and put in the cart and keep moving until I’m finished browsing. Then, I examine each bag. This one is a woven kilim style carpet bag with a hinged closure – think doctor bag by T. Cappelli. It has four brass feet, so I knew the quality was there. If I’ve never heard of it, I google it. Sometimes I find that it’s a BS brand, sometimes it’s a QVC or department store brand. Sometimes I find that it’s a legit brand from the 80s. I enjoyed carrying it today and got lots of comments on it. I had it full of stuff, and the magnet closure did not fail. $6.

bag 8 – claimed

 

I picked up this little baby at Valley Thrift and come on… Fossil, beads on the strap and zipper pull, the key is amazing; it’s all so adorable and classy. I am not leaving it there for $2.99. I know I used it at least once because the price tag is inside the bag, but I can’t remember when that was. So goodbye to thee, sweet baby. You are sooooo cute.

day 28

Woven bag that I use as a purse and a book bag. Here it’s loaded with books for church tomorrow. I’m doing the children’s sermon, and I can’t decide between the three books in the bag. I’m sure I’ll decide by tomorrow morning.

Back when Kaia was in 9-12 (grades 4-6) at Sands Montessori, we did a classroom sale of recycled products that the kids made. I worked with them on wallets made of chip bags – it was so fun, and challenging. I saw this bag at Goodwill and had to get it. But i’ve never used it, and now can remember it through this photo. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com and it’s yours.

Here’s a cute bag from The Sak: a structured hobo in their traditional silky knit material, with woven leather handles. Makes a good shoulder bag or carry over your arm. Please email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’re interested in bag 11.
