I don't have the bag here, so can't post a pic - but I have a brown croc. leather lined frame bag (approx. 12" x 10") - perfect condition except for some wear on the strap - that I bought in a resale store about 10 years ago for $40. Created a chain strap from a belt so I can wear as a shoulder bag if I want to. LOVE IT!

I love vintage bags! I just bought this bag at a local thrift shop. It kinda reminds me of the stam bag, but just a little. It's really pretty.

It just means second-hand but you can usually find bags in really good condition that are slightly use. The designer names especially hold up well.

Thanks! I just bought another vintage bag. I was very rude and grabbed it right in front of a old lady . But when I saw it I knew that I had to have it....
