I thought you all might find this funny. My son told me today that "Mom, your purse is broken." So of course I am freaking out thinking what is wrong with my bag. I am checking it all over thinking did the tassel come off, did it rip, is there a stain on it..ect Look for a moment can't find anything so I ask him what is he talking about. He told me "Mom, the zipper is coming off the bag." I had to tell him that is the way the City bag is made.
