A sad, Vera Bradley bag

 This is my first, new to me, Vera Bradley bag. Love the print, it's very "me" and the size is perfect for a library book bag. I paid either $6 or $8 for it.
Sadly, the straps are really fraying. I hope to replace them this Summer, selecting some matching fabric from my stash.

Vera Bradley bags are very expensive when new, aren't they ? This one will look great once you've fixed it. I hope your health improves soon ! xxx

Frugal, I used this "preowned" bag for a few years, and now it's showing it's age. I can fix it mysellf. : )
ANd yes, they charge way, way too much for these! I just bought another "preowned" VB large tote which is working out wonderfully as my school aka work bag. I can't imaging paying over $80 for it. $14.25 suits me just fine, thanks.
