Saturday Thrifting

It was a beautiful sunny fall day and my daughters and I decided to do a little thrifting in the morning. First I decided to return the green pebbled leather Coach Soho purse I wrote about previously. It was so cute but just not in good enough condition and I couldn’t find an inexpensive way…

Goodies Found Hither and Yon
