My New Guatemalan Purse

A few weeks ago I discovered the Mission Thrift Store in the Mission District. I was so thrilled. It's funky and retro like a store I have shopped at in Haight-Ashbury called Aardvark's Odd Ark. It turns out that it's a sister store, and there are a couple others too. This one has the lowest priced items of all of them because of the overhead. So it's another good reason to shop at this one.

When I was in there for the first time a few weeks ago, I saw a purse that caught my eye which was behind the counter on a stack of other merchandise. I inquired about it but was told it was yet to get priced and the manager was not in right then. I called back to find out more but was unable to make the needed connection for the needed info. So I gave up and figured it was not for me.

Yesterday I showed up and there it was displayed with other purses. It was marked for $14.00. I decided to grab it and ask them to come down on the price. They did and let me have it for $10. I left one happy customer and told them I will keep coming back.

It's fabulously made and I got to use it today. It holds a lot and I had to knot the handle as it hangs too low. It works perfectly and I enjoy using my new bag.
