It's A Keeper!

I already posted this photo on Facebook with the query as to whether or not this recent find was a "keeper" and the unanimous response from all friends was "Yes!"  I am not really a handbag person.  I need my hands to be free!  I tend to wear shoulder bags every day and I switch to back-pack style bags when I hit events like flea markets and such where I need to bend and dig and cannot be bothered with something hanging off my arm, or, worried about shoplifters.  A handbag, then, for me, is not so practical.  This one is SUCH a beauty though, big enough to hold lots of things but nice enough to take along on a special event.  This bag has presence.  Found for $4.99 I could make a tidy profit in a heartbeat on Etsy, but, I think this one will have to stay with me for now.  It's a keeper.

  2. You will sooo glad you kept it! I have it in white & ivory and I use them both enough to justify it. Great find!

  3. Get out TRVS! You do not already have this same bag in two colors??? How amazing! I found this at the "new" Branch Ave. Savers. I found almost nothing in the place, except this one awesome bag. Of course the date on the tag matched the date I was there. Sheer luck.

  4. I should also mention that, without a coat, I can just fit the straps over my shoulder. I would not want to wear it that way often or I'd destroy the handles quickly, but, in a pinch...
