Thrifted Treasures

I found a Vera Bradley Messenger bag just like this one (the picture is from the Vera Bradley website) for 3.00 at Goodwill today. Unfortunately someone had written the price in sharpie on the underneath of one of the plastic closures. It's not readily visible but does reduce the sale value and so I'm so tempted to keep it.

Wow--that's great!

I hate it when thrift stores mark on items like shoes. I don't mind paying $2 for something, but I don't particularly want the rest of the world to know!

Have you tried cleaning it with rubbing alcohol? Depending on the marker, that sometimes works for me.

Try hairspray too!

I'd personally keep it, I love the color.
