|Love at first sight!|
At the super yard sale last fall, I got a few more shopping bags for a price that suited my parsimony. That means they had to be cheap, useful, and pretty if possible. I fell in love with this bag as I dug it out of the box. You know that the first thing I do is stick my nose/face in a bag to see if it has odor. No odor! And, it is not for grocery shopping.
Several months later, I unearthed this from my treasures and showed it to exbf. I asked him to examine it and tell me what he thought I paid for it. He looked it over and guessed--$5.00. I was surprised he would think I would pay that.
I showed him the LC on the flap and asked him if he knew what it meant. He was baffled. Unlike the majority of us women, he had not a clue, not one. Liz Claiborne is just something he thinks he has heard of in the past. I am not into brands, and obviously he is completely oblivious.
You want to know what I paid? He was shocked it was soooo inexpensive.
$0.50. Two quarters. Four bits.
Yes, two quarters for a heavy canvas, colorful bag that smells of nothing and was not dirty at all. It is 18" long x 9.5 " deep x 13 " tall. There is a zipper on the top and on each of the end pouches. The pouches on the ends are the height and width of the bag and one inch deep. A long, snapped pouch is across the back and there are three pouches on the front, one with a snap under the flap.
A weekend's worth of clothing would fit in this bag, including extra shoes and toiletries. Cool! Doesn't it look like Spring? Easter?
These are just my colors, especially the happy pink and yellow. Do you ever get all silly-happy when you find something special? What have you found cheap lately? What have you found cheap that you want to crow about?
