recently thrifted: bags, bags, bags!

I have had REALLY great luck finding bags/purses at thriftshops this weekend and last. This weekend my friend Betsy invited me to go thrifting around Greensboro, NC and I had a blast! You’re not going to believe what I found (and how much I paid)!

here is my haul:

bags / purses
my thrifting haul (top L to R then bottom L to R): Anne Klein patent and zebra tote $4.50, Tignanello Beige leather handbag $4.50, Coach black all leather tote $4.50, vintage Dooney and Bourke black/brown mini satchel crossbody with matching wallet/organizer $35.00, black leather Ashley Brooke organizer crossbody $4.50, silver beaded vintage evening bag $2

I cannot believe I scored this awesome (and authentic, I may say) Coach tote for only $4.50! I really hit the jackpot! I added the polka dot ribbon bow for extra fun. It was in such amazing shape, all I did was use black shoe polish to polish the corners. The leather is so soft and supple. AND I had been looking for a black leather purse! It was kismet!

This Ashley Brooke (sold at DSW I believe) crossbody has a lot of awesome compartments. I think this bag will be great for traveling.

And last but not least is the AWESOME vintage Dooney & Bourke crossbody satchel and wallet set. It’s in great condition and that’s probably the reason I was willing to spend a little extra on it. I wouldn’t usually shell out this kind of money ($35) but I figured since it was in great vintage condition WITH the wallet/organizer and I had been wanting one for a few months, that it was worth it.

    1. Thank you! YES, the prices were amazing. And the reason why most of them were only $4.50 was because I also had a 50% off coupon at one of the thrift stores. Still $9 isn’t bad, even without the coupon.

    1. After some research, I uncovered that this pebble dooney is a REALLY good replica. I was pretty sad about it. But I think I’ll still keep it. It’s a really nice bag after all.

      1. Oh no! When I think of knock-offs I always figured they’d be the the bags that have the “DB” logo on it (or the coach c’s) and not the more classic styles. I won’t tell a soul! 😉
