Isabel posted a cool entry today detailing the contents of her purse, and I figured it would be fun to play along.
Here's my purse:
It's a woven bag, allegedly a native handicraft from Ecuador or Guatemala. I don't know how indigenous it really is, but a vendor who always sells swag at the Native American arts festival at the historic site I worked at in 2004 sold them. I'd seen them around (I'm guessing lots of hippie shops also sell them) and I really wanted one, so MB bought me one. I've used it ever since and I love it.
Now for the contents:
A: My mp3 player in an old cell phone case. MB attached a ribbon and a carabiner to the mp3 player so I can clip it onto my clothes somewhere when I don't have any pockets. It works great to hang it from my pajama top when I'm lounging around listening to music and reading at night :)
B: Hairband. Necessary in case of sudden barrette failure, as I cannot stand to have my hair in my face while I'm working.
C: Coin purse with a kickass holographic comic book-style design. It used to belong to a girl that I worked with at my high school job at the ice cream shop, and I'd play with it whenever she got it out to buy something. When I started college and switched to only working weekends, she gave it to me as a semi-going-away present. It still reminds me of the good times we had at the store.
D: Buckeye nut for luck *.
E: Tiny compact-style mirror with a Care Bear sticker that I put on the front to cover up a sticky spot from the price tag. I got it at a thrift store for 25 cents.
F: Fuzzy zipper pouch where I keep all the bargain club cards and punch cards and random whatever cards that I can't fit in my wallet anymore.
G: One of three pens.
H: Bank receipt and expired car insurance card (don't worry, I have a non-expired one in my wallet).
I: Hot Topic gift card that MB gave me for Christmas.
J: Notebook for writing down books I hear about and want to read, cool quotes I come across, etc. I actually use it all the time.
K: My phone, clearly.
L: Burt's Bees milk & honey lotion, the best lotion in the whole wide world.
M: My wallet. I bought it for 50 cents on clearance at Gadzooks in high school, and I've been using it ever since.
