Thursday's Thing* (It's Back!)


My Bag.  My Very Cool Bag.  My Very Cool Strangers Ask To Touch It Bag.

I walked in to a bead store a few years ago and the owner had several leather bags for sale.  She bought them all in Africa years and years ago, enjoyed using them through the years, and was looking to downsize her stash.  Lucky me!  I was willing to pay any price for this.  She asked for $15.  FIFTEEN DOLLARS!!!  Of course, being me, I said, "Fifty Dollars?" (which I was willing to pay) She said, "No. Fifteen."  Then I bought $250 in beads and went home.  The Bird Man said, "Cool bag."  I said, "Thanks!  I paid $15 for it!"  He said, "Wow!  I would have even bought it for that price."  He never asked what was in it :-D
So now, whenever I go bead shopping, I bring my Bag.  It hold lots and lots of beads.  And the Bird Man never asks what is in it.  







  *Appreciate what you have.  Want for less...unless it is beads or music.

hahaha! You are too freakin' funny! A leather bag for $15?! Totally justifies your purchase of $250 in beads! That bag is totally awesome!

I love that bag! And, only $15. That's a steal and so buying beads to put in it was completely justified. You know, sometimes the less they know the better for them!!

I love that bag, too! What a deal and I know it's even better when it's full o' beads!

LOL! Love that you have a bead bag. They don't have a clue how much a little bag of beads can cost. Best they stay in the dark. : )

Everyone needs a good (big) bag for bead shopping. And if it's this cool, even better! That fringe just begs to be stroked...

Hi Christine,
That is one beautiful leather bag and for $15.00 too. Yep it justifies the $250.00 worth of beads that were inside. I love the ways of a woman out cunning a man.

Wow, what a deal!

And of course you bought 250 dollars worth of beads. Bags with no beads in them feel sad and empty. That's why we need to fill all of them. ;)
