… And Another Bag

I told you I loved handbags and totes. Here is another goody I found recently at Goodwill. It is a Banana Republic brand. I always look at the brand names; after all, I’m looking for a deal. I realize brand names don’t matter to some people, but I think it’s fun to see what you can find and not pay retail for a good brand. I had no idea what a Banana Republic bag sells for so I checked out their website. Evidently, they are between $100 and $200, so even though I spent a little more than I care to (marked $6.99, -10% discount, $6.29), I definitely got a great deal.

I’m thinking the color is from last spring’s collection, but I still love it. This was in excellent shape, as well. The picture makes it look gray, but it is actually a very light blue/green color. It even smells like leather. (Alan suggested I sell it on Ebay, but I think I’ll keep it for myself. đŸ˜‰ )

I. Love. Bags.

I’ll admit, I have a problem when it comes to purses or tote bags (and shoes and paper). Here is a goodie that I picked up recently at … where else? Goodwill for $1.79.

Orange tote

When Leah saw it she asked if it was a Vera Bradley. I doubt that it is but the same thought had gone through my mind. It is actually vinyl, not cloth and the lining was in excellent shape. I’m loving the colors. I’ll be using it a lot. Love a good deal (and bag)!
