Hi ladies! I´ve been looking for Mulberry Mabel in pale pink and now there´s two on eBay - the other one is nappa leather and other is patent leather. Now I just can´t seem to decide which one would be lovelier :biggrin: What do you think? I´m looking for an everyday bag...

Nappa hands down for me. I'm not sure about Mabel in patent personally.
Nappa is fabulous.
Have you looked at Soft Spongey too. It's very lovely and hard wearing.

nappa here too from those choices- pink ones at york today only £298 i think- much less than others anyway they were over £400

If only!
I have the fuschia patent mabel and it is absolutely gorgeous - a stunner. I suppose it depends on whether you want to "scream" bling! or be a little understated with the Nappa.

I love my mabel but it definitely isn't an everyday bag - weekends and special occasions! By the way an expensive bag originally £695 - so if you are getting a bargain on ebay worth going for it.

Here she is with large Anthony for size.

Doesn't nappa scratch badly? Just what I was told - I have no experience of this.

Ah, that would be it. I wondered if I had dreamt it. I do dream odd things.

Thank you so much for your opinions ;) I think I´m ending up to nappa anyway although the patent leather looks gorgeous, too... It´s so hard to decide...

Good luck with your choice - I personally would go for Nappa over patent in the mabel style - patent is lovely but it is quite blingy on Mabel, so you would have to love bling for sure (as mentioned by Numnut too) :smile:
