Hello lovely ladies, Here I face 2 beautiful regular size Mulberry Alexas in oak buffalo leather. Oak Alexa #1: Pros: The price is $150 USD less Made in England (rather than the other Made in Turkey) Cons: Lots of scratches to the hardware More Used than the other And last but not least - this little gold hardware behind the bag towards the left doesn't seem to be secure ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ Oak Alexa #2 Pros: Impeccable Condition for a preowned bag - No Scratches on hardware The little gold hardwares on both side of the back of the bag looks perfect and secure Cons: Price is $150 more expensive Made in Turkey (rather than the other Made in England) Conclusion: Please ladies - help me decide which one I should get. They are both beautiful but I am on a budget and would like to opt for the less expensive if possible. However - do the cons outweigh the pros for the less expensive Alexa? If I was gonna spend that much money anyway for a handbag - maybe I should spend the extra $150 USD to have an almost NEW Alexa in perfect condition. Then again to spend that extra money and have it be Made in Turkey rather than Made in England is a bit disappointing.... I am really at a crossroads and I need to know what you would do if you had the same 2 options. I know what you are thinking - what a horrible dilemma I have no?? Thank you so much for taking the time to read my rather long post.
