Hi BP!
What a great closet find! I don't know where you can buy a strap. Hopefully someone can answer your question. It would be wonderful if you were able to carry it!

What a great find. Do you have any other Dooney handbags with a strap that might match? If not, scout consignment stores to see if you can find a matching strap on a purse that's not too expensive. There might also be some places on ebay that sell straps, not necessarily Dooney, but something that might work. Depends upon how much of a purist you are. :smile:

someone told me about a store on ebay years ago but i can't remember the name so i am going to search for it. but they sold leather straps for bags and she said they made small ones with the clip that would work perfectly for this! i would not care at all that it is not a Dooney strap. i just want to be able to finally bring it out and use it! :smile:

Dooney.com has replacement straps on their website. They are priced at $25. You may be able to find a match there.

Are you looking for a crossbody strap or a wristlet strap? I found this 3 Part strap which should maybe work as a crossbody or a shoulder strap with the removable middle section.

Oh sorry. Do you have any other wristlets that have a removable strap? Ilovedooney usually has wristlets that are pretty inexpensive that you can remove the strap and use it for your little duck. Or maybe check on eBay and search wristlet straps. Good luck. [emoji4]
thank you!
i have no other wristlets with detachable straps.:sad: i have thought about checking ebay or even local resale shops to see if i could find anything.
there is no rush for it because i still plan to carry it in my bag without it but i will be looking for a strap in the meantime.

mautto.com has great strap options. Not sure if you can find the exact color but worth a look.

thank you so much for this site - so much to look at!!:smile: i will file it away "just in case"
