Wow - I'm in love with this bag. It arrived today!!! Yippeeeee! I bought it off eBay (France) and the seller said it was new. It's definitely used, but in excellent condition. I got it for a very good price so am not worried about that. Although I think she's glued the tassels together as they're a little white on the sides. She's a big bag, perfect for all the crap I lug around for myself and 2 small kids. She also sits beautifully on my shoulder and is feather-light (unlike my Paddy tote). Oh, the last picture is of the cloth after I gave her a good clean/condition. Yuk.
