My Satchel Off Marc

Remember the battered old satchel Marc bought me for a fiver while we were out browsing together in Portobello Road a few weeks back …..???

I haven’t done anything else to it and am going to enjoy using it for the next few weeks as it is - a battered very genuine vintage school satchel…… but, when I stay with Marc later in October I have asked him if we can embellish it together and turn it into something very different and unique.  I am also on the look out for another one to do up, but finding another at such a bargain price and with such a wonderful person in tow will be nigh on impossible!
