You know whats not cool? People stealing wallets. Thats what.
I had mine nicked (niked?nicced?) a week ago while shopping at a garden store. There were only a couple people there, and I either dropped it and it was grabbed or they grabbed it out of my pocket.
The reason its not cool has nothing to do with the actual money (jokes on them, since I rarely have it), but the reason its not cool is because its a PAIN IN THE REAR!!!
I got to spend two hours at DPS one afternoon and by the way, those people look nuts in there. That's not very nice of me, but I swear that 75% of the people in that building looked straight up crazy (maybe they thought the same of me?)
Then I had to replace my cell phone (my wallet had a cool pocket for my phone)...and after rebuying something I already owned, I had to spend loads of time punching in numbers.
LG Phone...I'll admit that its pretty nifty.
Then I had to replace my cards...and bum money off my husband for almost a week. I guess I shouldn't complain too much about that since he was super cool about buying my replacement phone.
AND...I really liked that wallet! check it out in this photo:
I had bought it from Eleen on Etsy last summer. She doesn't have the etsy store right now b/c she opened a real life brick and mortar store. But trust me, it was rad!
Over the last week or so, I've been talking a lot with Bagel Creations on etsy about getting a similar wallet - the Possible Bag ...here is a photo of the wallet, but not in the fabric that I'm getting:
Bagel Creations already ordered and recieved the fabric I want and I'm pretty sure she's hard at work on the little wallet now. So, I guess everything will end up okay (the wallet thief didn't have enough time to use my cards or do anything other than turn the phone off). And I guess I'll find another Etsy store to love.
