Estate Sale DIY: Chambray Bag

While I didn't find a perfect chambray shirt this weekend, I did find a chambray Capezio bag from the 1980s! Sunday I went back to the two-weekend estate sale from last weekend, and they had opened up all of the outbuildings :) I felt all American Pickers (my new fave show) digging through all the old dusty things!

When I unearthed a Capezio bag that most likely had been in this outbuilding since the 80s, I had to have it! Needless to say, it wasn't in great shape. After some OxyClean, TLC, and a round in the washer, it's nearly back to it's original goodness!

Before and After of Chambray Capezio Bag, Estate Sale (<$1)

I'll show you some of the other treasures I found this weekend throughout the week- I just couldn't wait to show you all the difference in my bag :) I hope you all have a great week, and happy Monday!


PS: Have you guys ever restored a thrifted treasure? I'd love to hear about it and feature your before and afters on the blog! Let me know :)


  1. Great bag and what a difference cleaning can make!! Looking forward to seeing your other finds.

  2. Thanks, Linda! I feel like I'll be using it a ton come summer :)


I love your comments! You all are the best!
