Polaroid shoot with bags


What’s your vice?  Is it shoes, handbags, makeup?  Mine would be shoes and maybe handbags.  However, I’m realizing I’m not using all of my bags.  I’m selling two of my Louis Vuittons (I know I swore I never would) but I don’t use them and my style is changing.  I’m selling them to Bag Borrow or Steal, which has offered me a good price.  My only complaint though is the process – how long it takes to get paid – 7 to 12 business days they finally cut you a check.  So really the process of submitting your bag, getting a quote, sending it in, making sure they really do accept it, and then getting a check can take a month.

The rest, I decided to keep in dust bags but tag them with a Polaroid so I can see them.  That out of sight out of mind is so true.


I love my Polaroid camera/printer.  Aside from using it to document my travels in a journal, now I can use it to tag shoes and purses I store.


Do you store your bags in dust bags?  I wasn’t sure if I should or if putting them away prevented me from using them since I didn’t see them but now I’m sure I can see them – as so.


Hoping this works and my bags get out of my closet!

    Oh…I’m a flat shoe lover! But my biggest vice is paper/stationery goods! Haha! :)

    Buying bags for my wife has always been fun because she loves them too but all too often when we’re in these bag slash purse stores there’s usually nothing for men except card cases or key fobs.

    It’d be nice to find a little corner of the store that you know offered a variety of IWB or OWB holsters or mag pouches. Men appreciate fine leather products too.

      Hi Don, hmmm usually high end stores like LV would have a nice corner for men accessories. Or, you could always let your wife wander the store and you can check out a cooler store next door like my husband often does :) Or, even smarter of him to stick by my side to make sure I don’t splurge too much! Haha!
