I went to Goodwill earlier this week and got 2 pillowcases (more on that in another post) and a really filthy Roxy brand purse...total spent? $3.28. I know. Nice. Anyway....the purse was disgustingly grimy, but it had pieces that I wanted, so I bought it (half price) and took it apart - I believe the automotive term is "stripped." Mwa ha ha ha!
And after ~ I got three magnetic closures, a zipper, 2 wooden handles, a foam-cored bottom, and some straw-like woven stuff that I can probably find a use for eventually.
