I just wanted to share with you the parcel that arrived for me today...
Beautifully wrapped, but what could it be?
Just look at this. A brown paper parcel, tied with twine, no less! This is surely every girls dream? It certainly is mine. I literally jumped for joy when I saw it!
And a letter? Pour moi!
And the beautifully wrapped item itself.....
A delicious chocolate brown satchel of leathery goodness!
Now, this has ended a looooong and torturous search for 'the perfect satchel'. Carboots, ebay, charity shops, vintage shops. You name it, I looked there! I dreamed of discovering a wonderful battered World War II satchel with a story and a history. But, alas it was not to be. As it turns out, a good satchel is hard to come by! Either falling apart, wrong colour, lost strap, no strap. But my search is finally over, thanks to a certain miss Land Girl 1980 and this blog post!
Now I saw this post, and thought how incredible they sounded, but worried that maybe my purse wouldn't allow it and continued on my pursuit of a second hand one. But almost two months later, after having had no luck, and seeing my friends lovely new yellow leather satchel and the love she had for it, I thus made my decision...I needed one in my life!
So, I researched this wonderful company from which Land Girl had recieved such great customer service, and found their facebook page. What joy to see that they have an 'offers' section, where they are offering £35 off the chocolate brown satchel! Oh me, oh my, I couldn't believe it! And so, one had to be mine.
If you are looking for a beautiful satchel, and some jolly good customer service, then honestly do go and have a gander at The Leather Satchel Co.'s website.
The accompanying letter offered me a 5 year warranty...5 years! Though I trust it will no doubt last a lifetime, it's nice to know they offer this kind of service to customers.
And the last line of the letter?
'We do genuinely hope this satchel helps to keep-safe everything that is valuable to you, whilst also charming you with good luck'
I am giddy with excitement for him to start his journey of wear and tear, and so am off to prepare him for his first outing.
And I've named him....Burt!
Pip pip! xx
