In a video on TikTok, the woman explains how she stumbled across the Coach bag in a vintage store and bought it with the intention of tidying it up.
As she went to clean it out, she lifted 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.”
