My black/blue stamp MAM is the bag I would save first in a fire. While I've always loved it, I've come to appreciate this as well as all of my older RMs for their superb quality.

There have been times when I've compared an older bag with a new one and I will literally sigh. There is no comparison. While RMs newer bags are pretty to look at and there are a lot of great new styles, the quality of the leather, hw, etc. is just not the same.

I can't post pics from my phone, as they are on my laptop and I don't have internet yet. My favorite old school beauty is Glazed Espresso Nikki. She has brass hardware and paisley lining and was made in a very limited quantity. Lynnia also owns a GE Nikki.

My other old school favorites are Tomato MAM and my two sample sale Nikkis from 2008: Noir with silver hardware and Taupe with silver hardware with mosaic lining.

I'll post some pics when I go to Starbucks later today...

Hi scoobiesmomma! the leather on the Black Resort Nikkis looks so chewy! And oh my goodness... I've never seen a Tomato Nikki before - I'm speechless...

Hi cocolee! I know what you mean... when I saw a stamped nikki and mab my heart skipped a beat! I can't believe such a beautiful bag ever existed! So luck are the ladies that have those...

That was the EXACT same sentence I was going to use regarding thedeer's collection!

I know she's parted with quite a few bags, but I also know she kept a few of the best! I agree with her, I will never part with my black/blue stamp MAM or any of my basketweave bags...esp. my original WBW MAB w/candy cane lining!

This is a great thread...I love seeing all these old school bags again. They're getting harder and harder to find and they are, IMO, the best of RM!
