Vintage straw bag with Jordan Marsh, Boston label inside, Enid Collins bag with suede interior made for a dress shop in California, Miami Creations carpet-bag.
Blue suede and leather Lifestride bag, blue Deco-ish box bag.
1960's metal purse trying to look like a Dorset Rex (it is a cheap knock-off).
The Collins bag was the steal of the day at $1.98. It was buried in a pile of cheap gym bags and carry-on luggage. Marked, "As Is" due to a couple missing stones and some dust, it was easy to clean up and replace the plastic gem (I have a bucket of replacement gems to fix these bags). The most expensive bag was the Miami Creations at $22.00 which is more than I would typically hand over for a bag, but it spoke to me...so I answered. I only wanted to be polite.
In other news...I sprayed some temporary green in my hair for the hell of it. I rather like it.

We're back to school this week and it hasn't been easy finding my routine. I build a great deal of flexibility into my lesson plans permitting me shift around as needed. When I put the syllabus together last Spring, I didn't anticipate current events necessitating a re-adjustment of our readings. Ha! Anyway, last May I didn't think I'd be ploughing through two volumes of Saul Friedlander second semester, but here we are. Sometimes, things come together by chance like the year I was already teaching 1984, when the Snowden thing happened. As a teacher, I couldn't asked for a better coincidence. Anyway, I'd have rather been covering Romantic poets, but they can wait another month.
Anyone reading anything that isn't utterly and completely depressing?
