A WOMAN who chanced upon £300 inside a designer purse she bought at a charity shop revealed it also came with a mysterious note.

In a TikTok clip, the lucky shopper explained how she bought the Coach bag for £7 with the intention of tidying it up.



During the cleaning process she lifted up the bottom lining and realised there was something underneath.

She said: "I thought I could clean [the bag] up, so I start working on trying to take this flap out at the bottom of a purse, and there is an envelope with money."

Along with the cash was a note from the bag's former owner explaining why it was left there.

The note: “I have three children, they will give my things to Goodwill when I die so I am putting their inheritance inside all my favourite things.

"This Coach bag was given to me year's ago by my husband's girlfriend.

“Well actually, I came home early from a visit to my parents’ house in Connecticut. She must have left quickly because she forgot her bag and shoes.

"I carried this bag every day, I wonder if my husband ever knew this was his girlfriend's.

"I carried it daily, and I am giving it away because my kids don’t want it. So go buy yourself a new bag.”
