my brand new, old bag.

so i wanted a rugged, somewhat masculine bag to carry and bang around...like this one (from the Sartorialist). I found this gorgeous, pre-loved saddle bag (below) at a brooklyn thrift store this past weekend. I love it! I saddle-soaped it, but even without treating the leather, it's perfectly worn and broken in. One of the reasons I prefer used/old/vintage stuff--somebody's already done all the work for me.
:-)

it's a perfect fit!smell the leathaaa!insideoutside p.s. on a more serious note...i was watching the news this morning, and there's a lot of talk about Virginia and it's red-state leanings. oy. *sigh* I pray my home state wakes up and votes for the change our country needs.

What part of VA are you from? That's a great bag by the way. And I see you dabbling in exhibitionist behavior son....

Love the bag. I have a similar one (but smaller, more like a satchel), that I got at one of the goldmines here in Va that some people call thrift stores.
