The interior reminds me of my first car — the Hornet. I bought this fat quarter for something like $13 at Fancy Tiger. It’s Japanese and was an impulse purchase. The bamboo handle and zipper I had on hand. My summer tote — a fair reflection of my quirks. Thrifty, impulse, vintage and off to the rodeo. And yet — still a touch of Betty Draper.
