This, my friends, is a vintage Dooney and Burke handbag, from the late 1980s as far as I can tell. It was a new arrival at the thrift store last time I went in. I asked the price on a whim, just because, and then I had to have it.
The lady said, "I'm sorry, but it's $5.00."
Like she was apologizing.
Like she thought it was too much.
Small towns are not without their charm, I'll say that for sure.
