I've been carrying messenger-type bags for a while now because of my sore shoulder. I was really pleased to not only find a pretty torquoise-colored one for summer but it's "Roots" brand which is a Canadian company which makes high quality merchandise. This bag would have originally been in the $60-$80 range; my cost - $15.51!
One of my favorite leather stores in Canada is "Danier" -- not that I get to shop at high quality leather shops much! It would have probably originally sold for $100 plus, but I found this lovely purse for $10.45; and with it's woven effect and the addition of a pastel jewelled bobble, I think it'll be great for spring.
