As I told you back in April, I am in love with the Thirty-One Gifts Retro Metro Bag. It is SO practical for a day trip, a library bag, or even to use in place of a purse.
I used my Retro Metro Bag during every trip/speaking engagement over the summer. I loved that I could roll it up into my carry-on and then use it as a tote for all the miscellaneous stuff I bring with me when speaking. Best of all, it was cute — and I can even stick my laptop in it in a crunch.
So I was really, really sad when an ink pen broke in it and it got a 5-inch blue ink stain on it. My assistant and I tried every trick in the book to get the stubborn ink stain out. There was just too much ink that had spilled so all of our scrubbing, spraying with Shout, hair spray, and every other cleaner was for naught. The ink wouldn’t budge.
Finally, I had to retire the bag. It was a sad day. 🙁
Then, Kirstin Tracy, who sponsored April’s giveaway and is a Thirty-One Gifts consultant, contacted me about doing another giveaway. She graciously offered to send me another bag to replace my ink-stained bag.
I was thrilled, to say the least! I chose this style (pictured above) and I love it. And I’m going to ban ink pens from it! 🙂
