Re: Handbag Mavens... Can You Believe it's 2020?

@hicindy2  The mask lanyard is a good idea. I've made no bones about not being interested in a mask 'wardrobe' but would like a lanyard. Problem is, the only offers I'm seeing involve multiples. Were you able to find an offer for a single or just a couple on Amazon?  I have no need for five or six.

@stevieb  Yes: 2 pack from Amazon $8.99.  Black or Royal Blue.  They show it as a 5 pack, but click on it, and you will see a 2 pack. 

 

 

 

 

 

2 Pack - Face Mask Lanyard with Safety Breakaway - Adult Size Length with Quick Release Break Away Clasp - Facemask Holder/Hanger & Ear Saver w/J Clips - Great for Teachers by sold by Specialist ID (Black)

 

Had a lanyard around my neck the whole time I worked at the bank.  Easy for me to adjust. Worried about it loose; afraid I'll flip my mask out of my pocket or drop it in a puddle if it ever rains

again..

 

Also, have a knit drop down mask from Buttonsmith (Amazon).  Comfortable and made in the USA. Adjustable ear loops too; no pulling. This one is made for longer periods of time and you can breathe easily thru the knit fabric and it is soft against your face.  Some folks are developing rashes from wearing masks for long periods of time and worry about chemicals / dyes used.

Re: Handbag Mavens... Can You Believe it's 2020?

Thanks for the information @hicindy2. I'll check out both the lanyard and the mask. I absolutely hate wearing them and while I wouldn't be getting out much more than I am anyway, along with the obvious reason, the masks are another big part of the reason why. A real problem for me. I've tried several different kinds but have real difficulty breathing with any of them and they all seem to make my nose run. I hate them.

@stevieb   That black knit Buttonsmith is a winner.  I seem to steam masks up in hot weather and my ears are sensitive. Gals at the chiropractor and the grocery store have admired that one.  Function over fashion sometimes prevails.  I do love my new PN ones though...

 

Speaking of function, got my Lug Trolley and I like it.  What I don't like about Lug in general is the slippery fabric straps.  I changed out to a mesh strap with leather tabs (MZ Wallace) and it really upgraded the bag for me. 

 

 

 

 

 

Regular Coach is expanding their Cargo line and I like the looks of the new tote.  With me, it is all about the shoulder strap. Midnight..this might be "the one"

@hicindy2  Oh, I do like that Coach...

Have to admit, I just am not a Lug fan... Not much they could do to make me one. I guess I just don't like their look, though they do seem functional and I might eventually break down and get one just for that reason...

 

Found both items over on Amazon and they're in my cart...

Sad news:  Queork is closing the French Quarter store

 

New Orleans is a city built on tourism.  What that means in a Covid-19 world is that our stores have suffered a staggering 95% reduction in sales since March 17th.  While our landlords have been great in helping us through so far, even costs like utilities and insurance matter at this point.  Our Garden District store remains open daily and we hope to have an opportunity to come back when the time is right.

@hicindy2 : I just noticed this Invicta 70th anniversary Peanuts watch is Today's Top Value over at ShopHQ. It's available in 2 dial sizes, and 2 metal colors. I thought of you. Woman Happy

Re: Handbag Mavens... Can You Believe it's 2020?

Really liking the banana leaf bags, but like you @hicindy2, they don't say 'fall' to me either... Thinking production, shipping or both got held up and they don't want to store them until next year...
