Ok Mulberry gals - here's the latest from the Shepton Mallet factory shop after my visit today. I went fully intending to buy a bronze Alana I'd seen there for £247. I very nearly bought it until the SA told me that the bronze is not durable and the coating will come off with wear. I'm not one for babying my bags so that was a no no. Then I had a lengthy time agonising over an oak Alana and the Phoebe in oak or olive green. Oh how I loved the shape of the Phoebe but, my god, it's heavy. I honestly cannot believe I'm typing this but three hours later (!!) and I came out empty handed!! Anywaythought those of you in the UK might be interested in what they had. Araline: Lots of them and in all colours including forest green; pumpkin; soft pinky red; chocolate; black. Ayler: Three sizes. Biggest was £397. Colours were purple/pink; chocolate/ginger; plain chocolate brown; chalk/brown/ginger. Bayswater: Again lots and all colours. Average price was £347. Black; chocolate; soft red; ginger; oak. They had some with the patchwork leaf print and some with the embroidered flap, also chocolate with contrast piping. Also lots of Ledburys. Emmy: Again lots. Average price was £347. Chocolate with ginger piping; plain chocolate; oak; ginger; chalk with brown piping; soft red. Alana: Ranged from £247 for bronze metallic to £347 for plain leather. Colours were black; chocolate; oak; choc with oak piping. Annie: Around £400. Vanilla, black and ginger. Phoebe: £415. Oak; mocha (v dark choc); olive green; ginger with paler top section; chocolate with pumpkin top section. Roxanne and Rosemary: Black; soft pink; choc. I think there may have been other colours. Didn't check the price. Smithfield: One in emerald green. Joni: Emerald green and dark pink. Kensington: Oak; black. Soho: Chalk with brown piping; nude with pale tan strap. There were others but I hope I've given you a taste!
