The Evening News

By far my favorite purchase this past weekend I snagged at the estate sale I went to Sunday. I found none other than an authentic vintage newspaper carrier's bag!

It didn't have a price tag on it, and I was almost too scared to ask since I'd seen similar ones go for about a hundred bucks.

Vintage Newspaper Carrier's Bag, Estate Sale ($4)
The man from the estate sale company pondered for quite a bit before offering the price of $4. (!!!) He said the bag was from a now-defunct newspaper in Nova Scotia.

While he rang up my purchases, we talked some more about the awesome bag. I told him that I was a journalism graduate, which was why I thought having an old newspaper bag was so neat.

He said that he had a journalism degree too, and that he'd worked for the Richmond newspaper for many years before he retired. Pretty cool stuff.

I'll show you the rest of my estate sale finds tomorrow :)



  1. Great find! I've been eyeing one like that at my local antique's not four bucks, though, unfortunately!!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
