I’d been wanting to replace the tired 8 year old pink backpack I was using to carry my laptop, etc. to and from the office, but I wasn’t finding anything that seemed worth its price. I don’t place a high priority on work bags, but I was really getting tired of that backpack!
Then one day, I walked downtown during lunch, nipped into a secondhand shop, and found exactly what I needed!
It’s the perfect size to hold my laptop, umbrella, sunglasses, lunch, and wallet. And it only cost 30 kr! (about $5.50)
It doesn’t look as if it’s even been used. I saw these bags all over Thailand and I suspect that someone brought it back from holiday, then decided it was too exotic for domestic use.
Fortunately, I have no qualms about carrying a bag with gold elephants on it everyday, even in subdued Scandinavia :)
What thrifted treasures have you found lately?
