Last Saturday, my sister and I went to the Urban Market Antique Show. I love antiques, but not as much as clothes! This is precisely why I ended up with a new purse at the Antique Show- ha! I’m crazy about one-of-a-kind items or unique personal accessories. Interior Designers say to fill your home with items that are uniquely you. So- hey, I ‘ll just do the same for my wardrobe/closet! P.s. I am loving the infinity scarf trick :)!
Here, I am trying on “the bag.” I have to say, from the very second I tried it on, I was a little giddy. Yes, I get giddy over these things. I had my sister take a picture of me because sometime I think you see things differently in pictures. In this case, it made me like it even more. Dangit, I don’t need another bag, I tell myself. But then I learned the story behind the bag…
It’s made by Stash and Co. Their bags are handmade individually in a 100-year-old historic landmark factory in small town Texas. My backpack was made by J Raphael Klein and the leather actually has brand mark on it – making it truly one of a kind. He even designed the outside pocket for an iPhone….genius! Cheryl Schulke, the founder, A.K.A. Stash, has a great story- check it out here.
If you think the bag is as cool as I do, check out their website. They don’t have it as one of the standard options, but they said it would be no problem to make it. It is the Backpack Sm | Chocolate. If you decide to get one, rest assured, no two are alike- ha!
Did I mention that my cross body gave me a headache the day before? I needed this backpack for my health- haha!
