As a high school art teacher I often pull out all sorts of interesting things but mostly I have pens, pencils, erasers of various types, probably some sort of paint brush, definitely Sharpie pens in various colors, crayons for the grandchildren, bandaids for cuts while student cuts while carving, a sketchbook with tons of drawings and probably a spoon or fork....and that is just for starters! I have been in groups where we would compete for the most odd thing in our purse like the old Truth or Consequences game show. Well, here is a purse for a lady who loves to be organized. The diagonal back pockets are not just pretty but also functional. Raise the flap on the purse and find another large pocket big enough for a magazine, a notebook, folder, Kindle or IPad. A key clasp is easily accesible from the inside of the bag so you never have to dig around in the bottom of the purse.
