Thrifted: Camera Bag

Hello, my name is Calley, and I’m a thrift shop addict.

I don’t know if it’s from my Dad teaching me how to haggle at a young age, the thrill of the hunt, or the feeling of joy with an unexpected find, but I’m hooked. I like to hit up my favorite thrift stores about once every two weeks. Since new things are brought in every day, I like to think that I won’t miss anything good if I pop in regularly. Living in a college town, there are plenty of stores to choose from, as well as some really cool finds.

I’ve been looking for a fun bag for my new camera since the simple black one that came with it is not me at all. I wanted something different and fashionable, but also functional. What I found was this beauty.


Now, I will admit it’s not usually my go-to edgy piece, but thats probably my favorite part about it. It’s a Dooney & Burke small leather backpack. When I first found it {buried under about five other bags} I didn’t think it was going to be in that good of condition. I mean, it was at a thrift store after all. But oh boy, was I wrong. I honestly don’t think it has ever been used. There are no signs of damage, and all of the hardware still had clear sticker protectors over them. My camera fits nice and snug inside, and there is even room for another {small} lens or two. And the best part: it’s a backpack! Hands free is the way to be!

I’m beyond excited about this find, and am now even more excited to use my camera {if thats at all possible!!}.

Now, if I could only find a tripod at a thrift shop…

What’s the best item you’ve ever found at a thrift store?


Love, Calley Rae
