Sharing on Rednesday...

How's this for some RED? I made a trip again over to The Spring Boutique thrift store here in Tampa. The proceeds from sales go towards supporting Domestic Violence Prevention and an Emergency Shelter Agency.  I had seen this bag when I was there the last time. Remember that wonderful Kathy Van Zeeland tote that I got for such a deal? I went back to see if the bag was still there and sure enough it was. So....I bought it. When I got home I did a little research online and found this description of my new bag.

"Offered here is this nice Bath & Body Works red satchel/bag. Simulated leather, red faux snakeskin pattern, it measures 18 1/4" long x 10 1/2" wide x 14 1/4" tall. It has 2 small handles, zippered pocket to interior, long detachable strap and zippered top closure. Original price tag of $75.00 still attached."

The bag is really big....kind of like an overnite carry on size. Trust me....I didn't pay $75 for it. When I arrived in the store I was told that anything with a "dot sticker" was half off. Guess who's Red bag had a sticker on it? Yepper...this puppy was marked $24.99 but no that is not what I paid. I am the proud owner of this Red bag for $12.50!

  1. What a bargain you got in that red bag. I go to these places, but never seem to find good prices. You did very well with your purchase.

  2. You got an amazing deal on that bag! I especially love shopping at the thrift store the next town over, because the proceeds also benefit battered women and supports a shelter for them. It's definitely a great cause!
    Happy REDnesday!

  16. What a great bag and a great deal!

    I think the first several netflix envelopes I sent back had to be taped shut becasue I had torn or cut the return postage square! I finally figured out they can open from the opposite side! I blame it on the kids, always in such a hurry to see what came!
