Convict bag escapes to work in freedom!!! 

That convict bag from my  #onlyopshopleather purchase escaped captivity and is now a free bag – able to work and play! 

Haha! Seriously though, how big and how cool is this satchel? Fits my 13″ MacbookPro easily, along with all my everyday gear. My work satchel doubles as my working week hand bag too and I think this one works well as both.

Getting a bargain 

This time I have made a purchase of $3 for a bag that appears new with no indicators of having been worn. I checked the site and new…. it is $395.00: Australian made, soft brown leather. 

So I’m taking bids… 😂😂

My #onlyopshopleather muse continues…


My new muse

I am changing gears for winter. 

My new op shop muse is #onlyopshopleather. Follow the # on instagram!

The #onlyopshopsilk summer has passed and I have found some of the most amazing items in my hunting and gathering. But I think I have exhausted all the silk supply in Perth! 

So with winter approaching and my love of op shopping not waining, I have decided on a new focus. I will continue to enjoy the fun of op shopping but only buy leather items! Shoes! Bags! Jackets! Skirts …. whatever fits, is made of leather and suits my winter style. 

Here’s my first purchase!

Three bags for less than $12.00. ‘Witchery’ buff leather handbag, ‘Seed Heritage’ tan nubuck tote bag and a black leather ‘Rugged Gear’ cross body bag. They are clean and only slightly pre-loved with so much more life in them. In fact the patina, that soft sheen that develops on the surface of the leather, imparting a character and personality, is only just developing. There is so  much more character to add as I wear them and enjoy them.
