I guess by now we know splitting these hunts into 4 post is just for the best.
- The first is to lay out what exactly I am on the hunt for.
- Second is to show you what I found during my online hunt.
- Third one is to show you what it is I find out in the stores.
- The last is to show you what I picked and how it worked out for me.
Today we are on the third post of the Bargain Hunt for Luggage! I decided to go check out three stores and see what of the hardside spinners and travel purse I can find in these three stores.
I decided to go with Ross, Burlington, & TJMAXX. As if you didn’t see that coming.. these just so happen to be my favorite stores. It doesn’t mean I will without a doubt purchase from these places or the online sites. However it is still fun to share my hunts with y’all.
For this post let’s go store by store and just know there will probably be no links to find them online at these stores but if I find the items at other online sites I will for sure link the site and info.
These stores are stores that get out of season or maybe even discontinued items. Normally they are listed at amazing prices and sometimes even cheaper when and if they go on clearance! If you do not have these stores in your area.. I am sorry! Maybe you have a Marshalls.. Factory-2-U.. or any other discounted store!
The first one was Ross:
The travel purse I found is this weekend bag by Jessica Simpson.. It is a red canvas bag that looks similar to a designer brand that makes expensive canvas bags! The original price for this bag is $140 and the Ross I went to had it for $35.
Unfortunately I can not find this bag on the web!
For luggage I almost (I am looking for the duffle version) found the piece that I have been wanting forever now… the lilac purple Calvin Klein print:
The downfall is that this bag is to small for what I am currently looking for plus it is not hard-sided.. But maybe one day I will find the duffle in this color!
I next found a Jessica Simpson spinner that was big enough and hard-sided but it was black. Not completely black because of the tan trim but still black! I didn’t write down prices but I believe this one was around 70 bucks.
Again I was not able to find this bag on the internet!
The second store was Burlington: (online shopping available for certain items)
The travel purse I found was a very cool bag. This bag was on wheels but would still fit under the seat in front of you.. they are called “wheeled totes”. They had a whole selection of these bags from different designers. This one was by Jessica Simpson (I really like her cute kind of “feminine” designs). This bag was a beautiful navy color with pretty floral prints.. it retails for 60 bucks but I found it on clearance for 45 bucks.
I didn’t find this print but I found similar wheeled totes from her for around $109!! Check them out >>HERE<<
The suitcase I found was a Calvin Klein hard-sided spinner in brown print. This bag was the perfect size and the only issue is that I wish it was in that fun purple coloring!
No surprise I cannot find this on a website!
The third store was TJMAXX: (online shopping available for certain items)
The travel purse I found was an Adrienne Vittadini quilted duffle in a really pretty purple color. It is not really a weekender but more of an overnight bag. It was being sold for 40 bucks!
I believe I found the bag on Amazon for a whopping 80 dollars. >>HERE<<
The suitcase I found is by a company that I have never heard of.. Mambo! The reason I chose this one is because it is big enough and the colors are so pretty plus yes it is a hard-sided spinner! The only thing is I want to do my research on the company before buying this spinner. It was being sold for around 70 bucks.
I was not able to find this bag online..
That concludes the in-store hunting. Next post will be the conclusion of what travel purse and spinner did I pick.. or did I even pick new ones at all or use the ones I already have!??!! Stay tuned to find out!
I hope y’all are enjoying this series as much as I am hunting and writing it. If you have any items you want hunted just let me know!
