This was my very first designer bag, and my very first Burberry. I was visiting London for a Master's class and stopped in Burberry London. They had this small bag half price--I think I paid around $300. It was totally impractical for me at the time because I carried really big bags, but I loved the wooden handle and all the brass hardware(including the tiny little key to lock it) that I purchased it. Every time I carry this bag it never fails to get attention. Hope you all like it. I've never seen anything like it since.
