Last week we asked a rude question: What’s in your bag?

We wanted to know 1 semi-unusual thing you’re carrying around in your bag, and whichever 3 Facebook comments made us want to rummage through the rest of your bag the most would be the winners. (See the giveaway details HERE.) You gave us such a great response that we decided to up the prize… instead of 3, we picked 5 winners! Each one of you will walk away with a Kumiko Spa Bag, a $245 value. We’ve got 2 black, 2 brown and 1 purple bag. If you are one of our 5 winners, sign the Facebook page saying I WON! and claiming the color you want–first come first served.

Now here they are… the winners, the reasoning, and an unreasonable amount of potential fun imagining what else you might find in the bags on this list.


…because we’re afraid if we don’t pick you you’ll taser us.

Kisha ‘Seven’ Barnes – Taser


…because we wish Cinco de Mayo could last forever too?

Tiffany Stano – a purple sombrero


…because it is just SO much fun to say!

Shannon Schulte – Bananagrams! So obsessed! I bust it out anywhere there’s waiting involved, including restaurants.


…because we are not sure whether to admire your dedication, or alert others to come to your rescue. Also, have you spent 2 years sans window?

Sharonda Layton Carter – Three pieces of broken glass. I have been carrying them around for almost two years trying to find a match to a window that was broken at my home.


…because this is simply too creative NOT to win… and we absolutely believe you!
