UPDATE <><><><><>My favorite handbag died and was buried today (in the trash can)

[ Edited ]

On late Saturday, I found a bag online - same color, similar "fabric" and shape but slightly smaller size, no buckles or the type of zipper pulls that will catch on my knits.  It arrived this morning.

================================

 

 

 

It was faux leather - British tan - inexpensive - about $40 from Filene's Basement about 15 years ago.  Big black hole style bag. 

 

Where the straps were attached to the bag - it was tearing.

 

I'll be spending the next couple of days going through the closet to select a "new favorite."

Thanks - but can't do buckles ....  I wear a lot of knits and won't risk getting snagged on a buckle.  (Been there, done that!)

Mine are handknits / crochet and looser stitches than machine knits -  and they catch on buckles, zipper pulls, etc.   Rather not take the risk.

@ALRATIBA  As a fellow handbag lover I feel your pain, because I am saddened when my favored handbags go to handbag heaven.😊

I have never had a bag wear out, but I know how you feel.  I wear my favorite shoes to death.  When I can't glue them together anymore and have to bury them, it is a sad day.

 

I hope you find a new favorite.

Sometimes they try to escape but is that fate worse than death?  Smiley Happy

It’s funny how we can get very attached to something we wear.   But time for a new friend...
