Last week Kalissa was a great help to me and finished up the last hour of childcare so I could head out and do errands. It’s such a treat to for me to be able to leave an hour early so I can still hit up my favorite thrift stores. Of all of things that have changed since I started childcare the things I miss the most is being able to get to town during thrift store hours. When I say it was a treat…it truly was.
I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a cross body purse. I have one now that I love but it’s green leather…I actually don’t mind the green leather because it matches everything but sometimes I’d like something different. Of course I won’t buy one for full price…..it’s the thrifty in me that just won’t let me pay full price for something to hold money.
I was really excited to find this…a Fossil purse for 10 cents. I really liked it and the price was right but there is one problem…the purse is dirty. The picture makes is look dirtier that it actually is. In fact, when I showed it to Kalissa she thought it was just supposed to be colored that way.
In reality it looks more like someone dropped a can of pop and the pop splashed up out of the can and onto the purse.
The back is same way on the bottom but not the top.
I haven’t tried anything yet….I figured one of you readers would know what to do.
If it doesn’t come clean I have a couple options. Toss it and forfeit the 10 cents…or try to use shoe polish on it and get a darker color.
So help blog readers. How do I clean this leather purse??
