Roots for the Win

Son says to me: Ma, next time you’re in a thrift shop, see if you can find me a new messenger bag, mine is starting to fall apart inside.

Mission accepted. Same week, I head to the MCC Plaza in Clearbrook and find this beauty.

The hand-grip handle had come off and the interior lining had a rip in it. I used a safety pin to pin the handle back on from the inside and then reinforced that with hand-stitching, then hand-stitched the hole in the lining. Good as new.

New Roots canvas messenger bags run about $50, this cost me all of $3.50. Son was pleased – that’s a double win.
