FINDS FROM THIS WEEKEND




On the way back to the car yesterday at the flea market something in the back of a vendor's truck caught my eye. A closer look revealed an old canvas/leather LL Bean duffel. He agreed to sell it to me after emptying all the fishing gear and old bottles out. I could hardly contain the excitement - I seriously daydream about moments like this.. actually coming across something you've been hoping to find for years at a fraction of what you would be willing to pay for it.

It's in almost perfect condition - just needs a clean and a few stitches reinforced. It came without a shoulder strap but I can sew one together pretty quick. So excited to put this thing to good use.
