Hi ladies!

I was curious if the mint color leans more toward green or blue? I purchased a NWT Mint candace on Ebay and have never seen the color in person before. I also got a wallet on ebay from a seller who called it mint, but when I got it it was a sage green and not at all mint in my opinion. I just wanted to make sure the bag is actually a mint color. :smile:

Legacy Mint is a really pale, pastel green.

Sandyclaws, come post a pic of your duffle! :biggrin:

Hey there!!! I know from previous experience...buying from eBay can be super hard to try and figure out what color your bag is....esp with the Legacy collection. They made so many colors ^_^ I hope my pics can kinda help you figure out if your bag is really mint. I know they made some lighter colors....chambray and mint...was their a periwinkle? Im not sure....but I know the duffles came in lots of colors. I would say mint is really a true mint. Kinda like a pale version of chocolate chip mint green ;) here are some pics of my mint duffle....

Ps...maybe you can post pics of your new bag & wallet :smile: maybe we could help?? I know that sometimes the bag and wallets don't look anything alike even if it's the same color

Coach mint was a beautiful color. The Mint Mini Tanner sold out ridiculously fast! If I had already bought a Mint Kate Spade I would have snapped one up

Gah, why do I always miss the gorgeous mints?! I missed the Minkoff mint from 2012 (current minty is too green) and now the Coach mint! :sad: I did snag an E/W duffle on eBay that's similar but more blue, I think the color is called Seafoam.

sandyclaws, LOVE that striped sweater! Gray and mint ... sigh :love:

The Legacy Mint was a beautiful color...I think it had/has a hint of blueness to it IMO. But definitely more on the green side.

Oh my gosh! It looks great! :smile: I don't have the bag yet, I just paid for it and am waiting for it in the mail. The wallet is FAR from mint. lol. It is very sage green. More yellow to it. I will get a pic and post it. :smile:

Here is the wallet. The picture I saw on ebay did look minty, that is why I was so shocked when I got it and it wasn't mint at all. I was just hoping the Candace wasn't this color.

Mint Candace! This picture is indoor light, so it's a touch more saturated. It is a TAD lighter and less blue in person. (That bag beside it is Ultaviolet, a strong vivid purple, but see how blue it is?)

Sorry about that, couldn't get a natural light pic as it's raining.

That wallet isn't from the same line as Legacy Mint. I've actually never seen it before. Can you post more photos?
