Help me help my mom declutter!! Batch 2 - $5 ONLY !! - Bags and Purses


I've separated this batch from the last batch because everything in this thread is $5 plus shipping.


As before, if you need specific details or more pictures let me know and I'll do what I can.

Paypal or personal check/money order (money orders and checks need to clear before I'll ship).

***SOLD***
#1 - Cole Haan men's wallet



#2 - Camo bag (messenger, methinks) - can't find a brand but there's a paw print on it for some reason.



#3 - Designs by Karen (made in Boston) - no idea who Karen is. The other side of the tag says "a la main"



#4 - Flowery book bag



#5 - I think this is a fanny pack. The front feels like gold lame.



#6 - Victoria's Secret. It sparkles and has a picture of one of the Angles on the inside lining.



#7 - Very soft. Fleece maybe? Not sure.



#8 - Gold lame



#9 - Fanny pack



#10 - Daniella Elite Fashon - Not sure about that scuffing/water mark on the top. I have no idea if it'll come off or what it is.

***SOLD***
#11 - I've got nothing to add to this one.

***SOLD***
#12 - Simple denim book bag with surprisingly padded straps.



#13 - 'nother denim book bag with embroidery



#14



#15



#16 - Polo

***SOLD***
#17 - Timbuk 2 - apparently these guys make real messenger bags for real bike messengers.



#18 - Quilted back pack

***SOLD***
#19 - Quilted messenger bag

***SOLD***
#20 - Quilted messenger bag

***SOLD***
#21 - Quilted messenger bag

***SOLD***

Are the straps real or fake? (In other words, do you actually have to buckle/unbuckle to open the bag, or are there snaps or some other closure behind them? Thanks again!

The straps are fake. They have magnetic closures under the buckle.

#11, the one with roses and beaded dangles, I'm very interested and would like a bit more detail regarding size, strap length and materials please.

Also, are any of the quilted bags Vera Bradley?

#19

left to right - 16"
Top to Bottom - 10-1/2"
Front to back - 8"
Pockets on each side, none on front or back or inside. Interior color is red with white polka dots. On closer examination, this one isn't shaped like a messenger bag. It's shaped more like a small duffel bag. The side panels are square so when it's full, it'll look more boxy than messengery.


#20

Left to right - 15"
Front to back - 6"
Top to bottom - 10"
Pockets - one on each side, 2 on front, one zip on back, 4 inside. The inside material is bright green with little white flowers.


#11

disclaimer - I just noticed this while measuring it. On the top purple piece, right above the middle flower, it looks like there's something missing. I don't know what. You can actually kind of see the circle that looks different than the rest of it in the picture above.

Inside dimensions:
top to bottom - 5"
left to right - 4"
front to back (when closed) - negligible.

Outside dimensions:
top to bottom - 8-1/2"
top to bottom when the tassel is included - 12"

The handle is chain and only rises 5' from the top of the bag. The dangly bits are seed beads and little bead-like balls. The solid triangle purple parts on top feel velvety but I'm pretty sure they're not. The leaves of the flowers feel the same. The black body of the bag feels like.......umbrella material. That's the only way I can think of to describe it. I hope that helps.

There's no tag on the inside except for the omnipresent Made In China.


As for the quilted bags - none of them are Vera Bradley (unless the tags were removed, which I doubt). As far as I can tell, they're knockoffs.

I would like to put dibs on #11, I am pretty handy at repair/replacement. I will look into the quilted bags, and let you know today later. Even a VB knock off is quaint and colorful to lug around needlework projects, books and the like!

Dibs on #12, the bookbag with padded straps. It's exactly what I need this semester.

I will also take #19, #20, #21 and #22 in addition to #11. Happy birthday to me! I will contact you tomorrow with payment arrangements as I expect to have part drinks in the very near future!

If you see this before 9am EST Tuesday, PM me your state and zip and I'll try to get a shipping cost on my way home from school tomorrow.

Just to update, the bags that have been sold have been removed from the OP - to make browsing easier.
