OXFAM RELICS: GROASE vs. DREAMY

I found this incredible bag that looks like it's about 100 years old in an Oxfam in Cambridge on Sunday. I did an instant swoon, and grabbed it before anyone else could fall in love. I felt like I'd found a relic from an Egyptian tomb, and the fact that it's completely falling apart, to the extent that when I wore it out for the first time on Monday, I was scared that it would disintergrate, makes me love it even more. It smells like a loft (tomb) and feels dusty. It has Camels embossed on the sides, and I'm VERY impressed with it...it's so groase vs. dreamy. 
I feel that everything should have an element of groase about it, to accentuate the dreamy aspects. Creepers, for example, are an essentially ugly shoe. but they are SO dreamy. 
The End.
