under $300.00. (In a cognac brown color...)
Does one exist?
Please help! Thanks!
Buttery, long time no speak. Have you looked at ebags and Zappos already? What size satchel are you looking for?
This Cole Haan Paige satchel is small:
How do you feel about quilted leather?
banana republic has some nice bags in that price range...they are well made with great leather
oooh, I like the Renata Minelli!
Hi passerby! You helped me so much the last time I needed a bag; I was hoping you'd show up! *HUG* I want something medium sized: not too big, not too small. A nice, everyday satchel bag with a zipper that would go nicely with jeans and casual work clothes...It would be great if I can get it over my shoulder.
Right now, I am carrying this Cole Haan bag in black and I love the style and size:
This bag is so perfect for me...The quality of the metal and leather are great. I wish they had this in a cognac brown color; I definitely would have bought a second one if they did. If anyone can help me find something similar to the style/quality (or better) of this bag, it would be greatly appreciated. I have looked everywhere and am having no luck...If I find the perfect color and size in that price range, the metal hardware looks cheap. If I find the perfect size and great hardware, the bag doesn't come in the color that I want.
I've never been into quilted leather before, but if this bag had a zipper, I'd buy it! It's very pretty!
Okay...I was on Zappos all night last night looking at satchels and I didn't see any of these! You are so much better at this than me!
Buttery, that Cole Haan bag of yours is cute! Good luck in your search - I'll keep an eye out for a zippered box satchel in cognac
A pity that this is not in cognac and can't be carried over the shoulder:
Try the Aleya Ny Sienna Satchel in Chocolate. You can't beat the price for the quality. I just carried it all over Rome and it held tons of stuff in style!

Bebe34, great recommendation! Any chance we can see a pic of you modelling your bag? Thanks.
Passerby - Would love to post a pic, but that would require my figuring out how to get it out of my camera and into the computer. In the meantime, here's a pic from Lucky mag to give you an idea of how it looks. I really LOVE this bag. It's large but not overwhelming on me (I'm 5'7" and a sz 4-6).
Kooba Ginger, on sale is generally under $300, in Chestnut. Yummy.
I don't have this bag, but I hear the leather is wonderful and you can get it 50% off!
Bebe34, thanks - it looks lovely.
Buttery, how do you feel about Dutchy bags?
This is in mocca (I have a poor sense of colour so can't tell how different this is from cognac), is probably too big, but still ...
