I have been really looking forward to introducing to you one of my favorite thrift store finds of all time.
It is this bag!
Isn't it just amazingly cute? I still can't get over it.
And I found it by such a fluke. I ran into one of my favorite thrift stores with one of the high school interns this past summer, looking for jars to make butter in for when we were talking about the Butter Battle Book, at Day Camp. We went downstairs to the Bargain Basement and there it was...
Yeah. Just let that sink in a little bit.
I grabbed it faster than a speeding bullet. I never heard of the brand, but I could tell it was good quality and it still had that new purse smell. (An even better scent than 'new car.')
When I got home, and I spent about 20 minutes just staring at this purse and clutching it to my chest, I looked up the brand.
I found their website and discovered a couple of things: a.) Their hands bags are gorgeous. Seriously. I am not getting anything out of this, they really are beauts. b.) I was right about being good quality - their bags are all leather - they even have a special line made of recycled skins. c.) THEIR BAGS AVERAGE AT ABOUT $300.
Yeah. Remember, how I paid $1.60?
Let's put this in perspective:
For $300, I could buy all my college textbooks for a semester (*sigh*)
For $1.60, I couldn't even pay for shipping for one book.
For $300, I would have about half what I needed to purchase these amazingly weird Christian Louboutins.
For $1.60, I could get a pack of googly eyes to make my own. (That needs to happen, btdubbs. It is on the Pinterest.)
For $300, I could work for 30 hours.
For $1.60, I could work for 10 minutes. (Yeah, I did math right there.)
Anyway, I'm sure you get my point...
I really love this bag.
