Gucci Bamboo Top-Handle Club: 1947 'till now

  1. I'm starting this thread in response to flipchick's suggestion

    As there are at least 5 of us already let's start a Bamboo Top-Handle club

    You may belong to the BTH club if you have a large, med, small, new, old or vintage bamboo top handle, any related extended family member (bamboo handle) ior even if you just like the bag :biggrin:

    Any info or photos related to the bag would be greatly appreciated :flowers:

    I will start with my treasured new darling

    With matching mirror case and engraved mirror

  2. Gorgeous bag papertiger...

    Checked one out at the Gucci store and for some reason I just loved the mirror. Normally it would not be a big deal but it was so heavy and lovely..

  7. Such gorgeous bamboo top-handle bags, ladies!! You're all making want to forget about the beige flap bag and get a top-handle bag instead :p I'm going to have to definitely check out the top-handle bags the next time that I visit my local Gucci boutique.
