I was looking for a summer purse that wasn't black or straw...and a new computer desk for a corner with a smaller footprint.
I'm still looking for the desk...
But I found a leather purse for $19 at the Salvation Army, realized that it was unlined, and started to walk away, even though it was a good size...went back & checked the maker then slung it over one shoulder while I walked around looking at the small selection of desks (no corner computer desks).
"Coach" was stamped into the hanging leather zippered pocket. I didn't wait until the next "senior day" or half priced sale day - I just bought it.
It's the second Coach purse that I've found - but DD (Ambrosia Hino) has the other one, which is about a third the size...this one, I aim to keep. For twenty or thirty years, if both of us last that long (purse, not daughter)!
I also found a pair of jeans on their $1 rack - if anyone wants to make denim quilts - check your local thrift shop for CHEAP jeans or denim skirts in worn condition. Cutting out the "good" parts and sewing them back together as a one layer quilt or coverlet will be give you a much more varied selection of denim colors than using only your own yeans! This makes them more "artistically interesting" even if there aren't memories of when you went hiking in that pair, to Disney in this pair, and that patch came from the pair your ten year old ripped out the first time they wore them to school (caught on the slide during recess).
