I was overjoyed when I came across this bag at the Arkon Platz flea market in Berlin. "That bag was actually made as a satchel for young schoolgirls, maybe four years of age" the seller tells me with a heavy accent, "I assure you it has hardly ever been used, and that is quite astonishing indeed, it is about 40 years old - take a look". He knew what he talked about. The bag had no signs of being used at all.
As I slipped it over my shoulder yesterday my mother commented on how it matched my shoes perfectly, "I never thought of that" she mumbled. " I did" I grinned back, "of course you did" she answered closing the door behind her.
