Next stop Euston! (reveal)

  1. I have been so inspired by Plemont's home for old bags I have been after an old bag of my own. This morning a not-so-old looking chocolate Darwin Euston arrived, that I got for an absolute STEAL thanks to the seller's rubbish photos.

    Photos of my own coming soon!
     
  2. Oooh!... I, for one, can't wait!!!!!:biggrin:
     
  3. Can't wait to see the photos :biggrin:
     
  4. Just trying to remember what on earth I did with my pot of Collonil gel - only used it a few weeks ago!
     
  5. Ooo well done watchthestars! I love my Darwin Euston and look forward to hearing more about yours:smile:
     
  6. Posting one photo to check that I've resized them enough!

    Isn't the leather gorgeous?
     
  7. Ohh what gorgeous leather!! More photos please :biggrin:
     
  8. The photos on eBay made the front and back look quite scratched, but it was actually the flash accentuating some minor marks. A leather wipe and some Collonil gel and they've disappeared.

    You can see my daughter in this pic :biggrin:

    Here's the back:

    I love the way it resembles a Roxanne from this angle

    There's even a Mulberry tree on the clasps

    Total bargain for £150.
     
  9. That's lovely and the condition looks just brilliant! Isn't Darwin leather great? Eustons often seem underpriced compared with other Mulberrys (and I have no idea why because they are such useful and 'mulberryish' bags, but at £150 that's a total bargain - well done you:smile:
     
  10. Gorgeous Euston! You can't beat chocolate Darwin leather! :smile:
     
  11. I haven't seen this bag before but you've found a beauty and at a great price!!
     
  12. What a fab bag and lovely leather too. Well done :biggrin: I feel there may be a few more Euston reveals now....
     
  13. Gorgeous - I'm such a fan of these older bags, and love the Roxy touches.....they are definitely underrated......and congrats for snaffling an absolute gem!!:biggrin:
     
  14. What a gorgeous bag, and a great steal for you :biggrin: I hadn't seen one of these before but really love the classic styling.
     
  15. Maybe it's the canvas detailing down the sides that people dislike? I must admit I think the bag would look prettier if it was all leather. But then the canvas strap would look wrong if that were the case, of course!

    I watched an oak and an olive sell for £230/£185 in the last week or so, and neither of them had the strap. But this bag only had three fairly rubbish photos so no one was bidding. I decided the chances of it being a fake were pretty remote. But I've compared it with the one Naughtipidgin has and it's certainly not. Made in England too!
