  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. Looking for the perfect for me black hobo...

    I am not small, so it should be on the larger side...I'm not label obsessed in the sense that names matter, but quality does...I prefer indestructible-ish leather...I'd like a fair amount of shiny hard wear (because in my own mind, I am an actual Rock Star), but not too much because in reality, I am actually semi-elderly

    did I mention I am currently broke after a eBay binge? and on my best day I have Hermes tastes with a clearance rack at Target budget

    Thanks for any help you can give me :smile:
     
  2. You might want to do a search...I started a thread on "distressed leather hobo" that might give you some ideas.

    Good luck!
     
  3. Thanks doreenjoy!!

    there is just so much info in this forum, that every time I start looking for something specific, I get side tracked and start looking at other stuff..think I have purse ADD
     
  4. Ok, looked through those threads and did not see WonderBag...so the hunt continues

    in light of the fact that I'm not really neeeeding this, I think I will keep searching for the most exact one, so price is a little less of an issue

    of the brands listed above, the closest match to what I'm thinking of are the 49 SQ MI ones...but the ones of theirs I like are the lambskin, and I think I would kill that in about 5, maybe 10 minutes

    so, any more ideas?

    Thanks!!
     
  5. Do you have a Coach outlet anywhere near you? They have quite a few different Black hobos in different sizes and styles and outlet prices are usually pretty low.
