Hello everyone. A major reunion today. I have to preface this with the fact that I'm not an LV collector (I'm a fan, just not a collector ) and I'm not even sure what size this is....but...... I got this sweetie pie back in (gasp) 1984 for my 18th birthday from my grandpa. I had wanted one so badly - and I can still see him with the big LV box from the store on Rodeo - my Mom was there too. My grandmother had recently passed away at that point, and he wasn't feeling all that upbeat, but I know he wanted so badly to make me happy. Oh - I swore I would NEVER wear another bag again!!! And I did wear her for a bit....but alas, times change, my tastes change and I tucked her away. Even when I was in a massive selling mode on eBay, and I sold my Noe which I swore I'd never do, along with an LV Wallet (both also bought on Rodeo for my 35th birthday), I was NEVER going to part with my sweet little Speedy.... I thought I might take some pictures of her. She's not flashy - no cherries, nothing fancy - I feel like I've taken out this old movie star - vintage, to be sure....and I'm so surprised how well she's stood up!!! There's hardly any dirt on the handles...and the patina is perfect all over. Look at the inside too! It's pretty damn clean!!! Sigh.....I just bought about 3 more Koobas - so she is going back inside the closet....but I just love her so much, and it was nice to have a little visit from Papi. Just wanted to share the happiness and reminisce. Do any of you also have significant memories associated with your LV bags???
