Thrifted Purses




I love thrifting a good purse! I found the purse in the first picture while I was shopping on a recent day off of work.  I was on the phone with a friend and wandered around the store about 10 times until our conversation ended, because I can't stand to be on the phone while checking out.  I was browsing through a few shirts, when I saw a girl put the purse back on the display at the end of the aisle.  I snagged it, and avoided her as I continued to wander around the store, just in case she changed her mind and wanted to try to get it back! :)


The second purse I found while at a conference in Akron this past week.  The hotel I choose to stay at was not right by the conference, but it was right by Salvation Army.  I checked it out on my way out of town and found the purse and a few more good finds I'm sure you'll see soon.  When I looked inside, I found this:




Advertisement for a funeral home in the form of a nail file.  It seemed a little sad!  Has anyone else had some odd finds in their thrifted purses??

    1. Thank you! I have another purse that's similar, but the quality of this one was so much better, so I couldn't resist!

  2. I love finding a good thrifted purse! The oddest item I've ever found was what appeared to be those toddler snacks - a couple of crumbs of those, so I probably got a purse that belonged to a mom.

    1. That's funny! I've had to take a hand vac to a purse before to get all the crumbs out!
