Found – In the parking lot outside of Marshall’s
I love getting good bargains at Marshall’s. What I’ve noticed over the past few years, is that some Marshall’s stores get better inventory than others based on the local income demographic. That means that if a Marshall’s is located in a wealthier neighborhood, it tends to get nicer and better clothing, purses, shoes, housewares, etc.
I was out on LI and in a Mega Marshall’s. I found this really nice soft red Italian leather Makowsky purse. I’ve been needing a new bag because the one I’ve been using is a few years old and stained with ink and all kinds of different things. The purse was on sale for about $129 dollars which is not bad for a soft Italian leather Makowsky, but at the same time, a little steep for a handbag.
I bought it anyway because I really feel in love with it. As I was walking out of the store, I was debating to myself whether I should have spent the money on it or not. I took about 5 steps out the door when I looked down and found this dime in my path.
