vintage postal carrier bag totes

I kicked off Earth Day by attending Chicago's Vintage Garage Sale kickoff and doing my part by purchasing this fun tote made from a vintage french postal bag.  Love the striped lining!



Vintage garage sale is great for a little weekend roaming and a big dose of nostalgia.  I brought the kids so I could show them what their games used to look like, along with typewriters, phones and record players.  The kids expressed their interest by telling me they were glad they didn't grow up when I did - without tvs - when telling them that I DID have tv, they responded,"yeah, but it was black and white, right?"  Yes, honey, that's right.  Not going to prove anything with continuing that one...if they only could see PONG.

Nice find! Love the combination of the season texture on the outside and the striped lining.
