I have made a few purchases lately..... first for the "old", and then the "new".

The pic of the first bag is a link to a stock pic of a bag I bought on ebay and then ended up selling to a friend--it is a vintage Chelsea Satchel. Whateve will think I am totally crazy because it is a beautiful bag that we discussed, and I got a great price on it/in excellent condition--but I think my stuff was just too small for it, and I had such a hard time getting in and out of it. I have a friend that buys some of my items, and she loves it, so it all worked out.

The next one is another ebay purchase--a Chelsea Flagship tote. It is gray, and in really great condition. As you know from another thread I have been working on getting the strange smell out, and I think it is much improved now. Over time it should air out a bit more.



Now for the new.... a painted dot tote, and a mini Borough. I ordered the tote from Coach with a PCE, and ordered the Borough from Belk with the F & F discount.





Thanks for looking!

Those are some beautiful bags.

Did you remove the long strap from the mini Borough?

Love them all.

Both very pretty. I have the mini borough and really like it. Couldn't say no to those stripes. Enjoy!

Thanks all! I do really like them all. To answer your questions, I saved about $70 some dollars on the mini borough...so I guess it would have been about $320 or so. I did remove the strap from the mini Borough. I tend to prefer satchel or small shoulder strap/do not like crossbody. The only time I use crossbody is when I have a satchel with me when I am grocery shopping...I keep the crossbody strap in the purse and pull it out to use for that situation. That is one reason I love Coach bags...they are usually smart enough to have the detachable strap.

I had hesitated to get the mini Borough for two reasons...not being able to get it on sale, and I was worried it would be too tight of a fit. I love small bags, but sometimes when they are too narrow I can't fit even my small amount of items in. But the Borough works! I think the extra pockets help give me a place to keep my phone, and the bag does widen at the bottom which makes a bit more room than it looks like it has. It is a beautiful bag...I have been eyeing that one for a while!
