Weekend Finds

Towards the end of last week, I noticed what looked like a garage sale/ lawn sale/ sidewalk sale right next door to one of my neighborhood markets. Looking like a bunch of junk, I rode by bike by multiple times Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, before my boyfriend and I decided we might as well take a look at was was left on Sunday afternoon. Boy did I luck out. I found 3 gorgeous leather purses within minutes, and my boyfriend found an amazing wool sweater adorned with a cute little pheasant. I glanced around for the owner of this "junk" but saw no one, so I went inside of the gate, up to the front door, and rang the doorbell, and it was here that I was told that everything left was free... free! "Are you sure?" I said, I couldn't believe my ears. Yes, she was sure. Fuck yes. Here are my finds:
 
 Vintage brown leather Coach purse- needs some major refinishing, but totally worth it
 
Vintage Ann Klein for Oroto small black leather purse- a little conditioner and we're set
    
 Vintage LAND leather bag with cute coin purse- good to go!
   
Outback Red wool sweater from the 80's- possibly a woman's sweater, but who cares :)

  2. great finds!!! i used to work at coach in college...they have lifetime guarantees on their bags. you can take it in and pay $20 (or whatever it is now for the shipping) and they will fix it/condition it/whatever for you! Hopefully they still do this, it's been 3 years since I worked there.

    And you are definitely a luck gal b/c that bag is still sold under their classics. But you go the better end of the bargain...vintage MUCH better than brand new but looks old :)
