            This was a gift for my sister on her graduation and it's great. It's both practical and cute, and is the perfect size to use in a purse for holding coins, cards, money or other small items.

                            Bought this little coin purse for my niece who's dad is a mailman. Unfortunately it just looks like a plain old coin pouch. No printing or character to it, so the gift didn't mean as much. It was more like up cycled blank canvas. Definitely not worth the price.

                                As a retired (25+years) postal clerk, I emptied and filled many of these dirty old bags.
                                I now meet once a month with 4 other retired clerks who also had the honor of using these bags. What a perfect gift for my friends. I am sure will will have lots and laughs and memories when they open their gifts.

                                  I like the old fashioned look. It would be nice if we got to choose what letter or number is marked on the pouch.

                                  Cute! I do wish the size was listed....I can only assume the size from the product description of what the suggested uses could be. I also can't tell if it zips close at the top or not..if so, what a cute little make-up bag for on the go.

                                  I give this a qualified "thumbs up". My problem is that there will be a lot of variation in the product. For example, in the photo I like one of the pouches a lot, but don't like the other one. Still the idea is excellent.

                                  I think these have a quaint, vintage feel!

                                  Ah.. yeah, my first thought was 'how filthy'! Even after thinking that... how large? Dimensions would be great - then I can determine if it would be worth my $$.

                                  Yes, dimensions would be great : )I like this - it's different!

                                  Hi everyone! Thanks for all of your great comments and questions. These pouches are 5.5 inches wide by 3.25 inches tall and can be zipped closed. A great size to carry cards, cash, and even a few letters of your own!

                                  Love that these are recycled and they look like they would be perfect to throw in a larger purse/work bag and take out when just running out to lunch or in a store -- instead of carrying a much larger bag.

                                  Really hoping these become available. I love this idea. They look great!
